Find information on how to get started on Hemavi, and how it works.
What is Hemavi, and how does it work?
Hemavi is a room rental platform that connects those who want to rent out a room with those who want to rent a room. What differs us is that our major focus is on the personal values.
When signing up, both landlords and tenants answer questions about their preference, lifestyle, and interests. We take all that information into a matchmaking algorithm and give you suggestions who we believe you are most likely to get along with under the same roof. Of course, the final decision is totally up to you, we just present all the details to help you make the best possible choice for you.
How do I rent out a room on Hemavi?
Renting out a room on Hemavi is completely free of charge. To create an account, go to the upper right corner on our webpage and click on sign up.
You start out with answering questions about social habits, shared spaces, and your personal information.
The next step is to upload your room and fill in information such as price, location, and the period of time you wish to rent out your room.
Once the room is uploaded, we will present the top matches of tenants generated through our matchmaking algorithm. The top matches are based on your mutual preferences and lifestyle.
If you have additional questions or want to get a better feeling of who your future tenant might be, you have the option to chat and have a video call at our platform.
Once you have chosen your perfect roomie, we help you out with signing the contract. The deposit is safely paid through us - if you have connected BankID/NemID, we’ll transfer that to you on the next business day. If not, then only when your new tenant has moved in and made sure everything is alright, will we transfer the deposit to your bank account. It is mandatory for tenants to have their own home insurance for the room they are renting. If they don’t already have one, we will give them the option to get one with the Swedish insurance company Hedvig in the process.
