Digital nomads are a growing number of the working population. Their type of work allows them to be anywhere in the world and constantly on the go thanks to technology. A nomad is seldom sitting for too long in one place. Their job takes them on adventures around the world, looking for chic accommodation and a great lifestyle to enjoy. While digital nomads tend to be millennials, their age can range from Generation Z to Baby Boomers who have adopted the on-the-go lifestyle. Due to their profile, nomads are customarily well-rounded, respectful people with an eagerness to explore the world and live in different places. That is why they make the perfect tenants.
Because they tend to travel solo, they are very social people and thrive in social environments. For these reasons, settling in a space that offers a co-living and co-working is the perfect setting for them.
Features Digital Nomads Require
Since digital nomads work from home, they require certain features wherever they are renting. Fast-speed Internet is one, for example. They also require good lighting, a comfortable and relaxing space, and proximity to necessities are another bonus. Digital nomads are used to rather simple living conditions due to their constant moving. They’re not so much about material things; rather, they need to be in a place that just serves its function: working and socializing. However, nomads also enjoy proximity to amazing things such as the beach, local pubs, yoga retreats and others where they can get inspired for the work they are creating. Most of them work creating content for websites, YouTube channels, and others.
When you’re thinking of investing in the Riviera Maya, especially Tulum, your end user is who you should be thinking of. Places such as UNITE Tulum offer the perfect space for an investor to offer to digital nomads. They usually move around due to weather conditions, so staying in Tulum for six months is a great deal for them during the winter months.
Co-Working, Co-Living and Socializing
Showcase appealing spots located close to your rental that could potentially attract nomads. Think of the white-sand beaches, the amazing Luum Zama yoga palapa and deep-end pool. Feature the archeological wonders of Tulum, as well. But most importantly, show them where they can work. At UNITE Tulum it can be the co-working space created just for them. Or you can point them to the many coffee shops in Downtown Tulum to switch up their working atmosphere from time to time. There are plenty of neat restaurants in the area, yoga and crossfit studios, independent shopping stores and more. Tulum truly is the perfect destination for digital nomads because everything is accessible by walking or transit.
Tulum is attractive to digital nomads due to the many likeminded individuals that they’ll meet there. Especially in co-working and co-living spaces. Landlords and investors like yourself are eager to rent their places to these hard-working individuals for a steady cash flow. Digital nomads have garnered a great reputation in Mexico. They are always willing to sign a lease and rent for a slightly longer period of time – up to six months, sometimes. Because they are always online, they will easily find any property that suits their needs that is marketed properly in online platforms such as Airbnb, VRBO and others.
It’s All About Community
In terms of co-working spaces, the booming popularity of these has allowed for the creation of many places with this feature. Digital nomads rent out these spaces with other people to create collaborations and saving funds at the same time. They connect and learn from each other, share resources and exchange expertise. Nomads get a sense of gratification and community. At the base of it all, however, is the investor that believes in them and in their potential to become the best tenants you could possibly imagine. So, if you want to have your foot in at the front of this growing movement, today is the time to invest in a development that caters to this type of target.
