Cover Story


Those who have stayed away from home or those who are currently staying away from home would know, “East or West, home is best.”

However, it is also common and sometimes necessary for many people to leave their hometown to seek better education or career opportunities in bigger cities or even abroad. Room-renting is one of the major concerns for them as renting costs in big cities are usually high.

Graduated from USA, Keith knows the best what people are looking for while renting a room from his own renting experiences. Therefore, he started Roomy to provide a perfect youth hostel for students in SS15, Subang Jaya.

With its competitive price and the comfortable environment that Roomy offered, it soon attracted more tenants. From only 7 rooms at the beginning, Roomy had expanded into over 200 rooms by 2020. When the pandemic hit, Keith decided to work together with his competitors, HOMIEE. Now, two companies have merged together and have become the biggest player in the co-living market. In total, HOMIEE owns 700 rooms in Klang Valley and Johor Bahru.

So, what is the uniqueness of HOMIEE’s rooms?

With the same price (or sometimes even cheaper) as other rental room, HOMIEE doesn’t only provide the space for their tenants, but also cover a bunch of useful services.

For example, they provide complimentary room cleaning service on a weekly basis to ensure the living quality for their tenants. Shared areas such as kitchen and toilets are cleaned on a daily basis too!

Besides, they also provide laundry services to tenants at a reasonable price. Of course, for those who prefer to save more bucks can do laundry by themselves using the washing machines provided by HOMIEE.

“When we’re away from home, parents often worry about our safety. Especially when you’re staying alone,” shared Keith.

Hence, HOMIEE put their tenants’ safety at their utmost priority. All of their premises are installed with CCTV from all angles to ensure no-blind-spots, 24 hours surveillance. Tenants are provided with digital access card to enter the premises. Besides, HOMIEE also equips their premises with first aid kits and fire extinguishers in case of any emergency.

Due to their consistency in providing the high-quality and safe co-living spaces to students, some universities and colleges, such as INTI International University & Colleges, Alfa College, Asia eUniversity, etc. have partnered with HOMIEE to encourage their students to stay with HOMIEE.

Moving forward, HOMIEE plans to expand their services to attract more young working professionals who are looking for affordable and comfortable co-living solutions.

HOMIEE has joined ZOM-IN.com to collaborate in efforts to empower aspiring youths. Join us now at www.zom-in.com to participate in exciting events coming soon!
