What we do
Common’s approach to property management integrates the latest consumer technologies, including automated lease renewals and a smart ticket routing and resolution system. These improvements reduce building operating expenses and enhance data collection, resulting in management that gets smarter over time.
Marketing & leasing
Common’s recognized consumer brand generates over 24,000 leads per month from social media, paid advertising, and traditional listing sites. Our strong connection to consumers accelerates leasing and achieves above-market occupancies at Common-branded buildings.
New housing products
Common is a pioneer in new unit typologies, such as coliving, microunits, and rentals designed to accommodate remote work. Through smart design and skilled operations of dense units, Common buildings achieve a higher rent per square foot than typical multifamily buildings.
Our in-house design firm, Common Studio, has designed hundreds of non-traditional assets, including coliving and hotel-to-micro conversions. As owners encounter unique real estate opportunities, Common’s world-leading design expertise can ensure these units are optimized for marketability and durability.
