Starcity is building a new category of real estate between hotel and housing.

In every major city, strangers are sharing their home to reduce costs and live more efficiently. But finding a safe, comfortable space to live at a reasonable price is near impossible.

Starcity's mission is to build strong, diverse communities while respecting the neighborhoods they live in. Each community chooses its new members from pre-qualified applicants. Each member receives a secure, private, fully-furnished room to make their own. Social, educational and volunteering events bring the community together in comfortably furnished open spaces. Starcity manages all the logistics and provides a comprehensive set of amenities and premium services to make urban living simple.

Starcity brings the power of these communities to scale by reducing the friction points around communal living and leveraging a decade of industry experience in real estate, hospitality, law and software to reconfigure underutilized supply in constrained markets like San Francisco.
