Buying or renting property is out of reach for many people in Australia as property prices climb and rent increases, creating a housing crisis that cannot be ignored.
Jo Vadillo, one of our generous sponsors of She Renovates Live 2022, is working on an exciting renovation project that includes a strategy for providing affordable accommodation for those on a tight budget.
Jo has identified that women are a particularly vulnerable group who struggles to afford the high price of having a home to live in. She is determined to tackle the problem, so she has started renovating properties to create a co-living environment that has cash-flow benefits for her and makes having a roof over your head more affordable.
Jo shared her ideas and insight on co-living with Bernadette Janson on this episode of the She Renovates podcast. She talked about what is meant by co-living, how it’s beneficial for women in renovating, and why it’s more affordable than living on your own.
