"I moved from NYC to SF, and I had only two days to find out a place to live here. Common is the most professional and fast responsive, so I ended up staying here, and I love it! You can just check-in like you are checking in a hotel. Everything is ready for you when you move in. The appliances are all brand new, and they are fixing anything in the house within 48 hours in case of a problem. I will recommend Common to anybody that wants to live in a more comfortable place."
"Its been a great experience living at Common McArthur in Oakland! I originally need a place for short term relocation while my apartment was being renovated and i ended up staying long term it was better cost and location wise....the application and interview process was quick and efficient and i was able to move in within a few weeks....the building is safe and secure and the neighborhood is a great area also a community grocery store just opened up...I would definitely recommend Common!"
"My experience at Common has been great. It's sort of the best of both worlds: a good balance between privacy (decent-sized room, private bathroom and kitchenette in some suites) and having friendly people around. Also, (and this is a big deal for me), the burden associated with moving to and living in Common is substantially lower than what you have to deal with in a traditional apartment. Pretty much everything is taken care of: The place is furnished, utilities and cable/wifi are already activated, there are weekly cleanings of common areas (which means there's no need to divide up chores with your other housemates), and support is responsive and available to deal with any issues that come up, such as appliances that need repair. Probably for these reasons, most people seem to move in when they're new to the city. But the arrangement simplifies life quite a bit and has been quite pleasant overall."
