    Managed Homesharing by daydream apartments

    What is Managed Homesharing?

    Professionally managed homesharing is an entirely new concept for the apartment market. It is similar to subletting or “Airbnb-ing” an apartment while a resident is away. Instead of the resident dealing with the hassles of bookings, key exchanges and cleanings, daydream apartments professionally manages the hosting on residents’ behalf. Homesharing is not allowed in most apartment communities and if it happens, it often does so in violation of a resident’s lease or city regulations. daydream’s program is designed to be in compliance with city requirements and has safeguards in place to make it more beneficial for all.

    Managed Homesharing by daydream apartments

    With daydream apartments, homesharing is a completely optional and hassle-free way to participate in homesharing Residents do not have to participate in the program and participating residents can offer their apartments as often as they would like.


    A home must be leased to a resident to be eligible for homesharing. Apartments that are between leases will not be available to guests. This helps ensure that daydream apartments offer guests the authentic feel of real homes and helps maintain a community feel on property for the benefit of all.

    Benefits to Residents

    Managed homesharing provides residents the opportunity to earn income to help offset their rent. The homesharing program makes the cost of housing more affordable, which is helpful in any context but especially in vibrant neighborhoods of desirable cities. Homesharing at daydream is a way to earn extra income without doing any work. Resident homes are professionally cleaned before and after a guest stay. Residents also have peace of mind knowing that daydream pre-qualifies guests, staffs security on property, and has an on-site manager to interact with guests on the resident’s behalf. Residents also benefit with owners’ closets and safes to secure valuables, as well as new upgraded property access systems.

    Benefits to Guests

    Most guests cite the affordability and authenticity of homesharing as key reasons to book a homeshare. With daydream’s approach, homesharing retains these important benefits and adds certainty that the homes will be clean, the linens will be fresh, that getting in and out will be easy and that a customer service team will be highly responsive.


    The daydream team handles unforeseen hassles that can come up when homesharing, from lost keys to a smoke alarm that needs its battery changed. Guests can also look forward to daydream’s city guides, on-site concierge services, unique programming and amazing property amenities unheard of in homesharing. At daydream, guests experience a more authentic environment compared to a hotel, especially if they participate in the on-site activities and take advantage of amenities daydream apartments provides.

    Benefits to Neighbors

    Most homeshares in apartments are done without permission from the apartment owner. And those hosts also frustrate other residents, especially if their guests behave badly. It is different at daydream. Neighbors enjoy a level of comfort and security unlike in any other homeshare environment. daydream’s on-site managers are deeply committed to maintaining an apartment’s community feel, so any bad guest (or resident) behavior is quickly addressed. daydream’s security and concierge teams are always available and daydream properties use technology to alert staff if residents or guests are being noisy. With the rules being followed, neighbors benefit from a safe, fun, dynamic social environment on property – one in which guests interested in learning about what’s local meet residents who love their city.

    Benefits to Cities

    daydream provides local residents real opportunities to lower their housing costs. Cities across the country are facing housing affordability crises, and daydream is one way to help address this problem. In addition, daydream takes exactly zero apartments out of the housing stock. That contrasts with many providers of short-term rentals who offer listings 24/7, making them unavailable for residents. That’s not us. And finally, daydream hosts are required to pay hotel taxes, which daydream assists them in doing.
