HousingAnywhere, the largest mid-to-long-term rental platform in Europe, has announced its expansion into cities in the US and the UK.

According to a press release, the expansion is in response to the growing demand from internationally-mobile talents, including students and young professionals, seeking flexible housing options.

In the US, HousingAnywhere will focus on building a portfolio of available rental properties in four cities: New York, Los Angeles, Boston, and Chicago.

The lift of COVID-19 restrictions has stimulated a fast recovery of international student mobility, particularly for these popular destinations. The enrollment of international students in the US has shown a clear rebound, with a yearly increase of 3.8%, according to the Open Doors report by the Institute for International Education.

In the UK, HousingAnywhere will extend its portfolio to London, Manchester, and Birmingham, responding to the increasing need for accessible rental properties in these key cities. The platform has observed significant growth in searches for accommodations in London, with a rise of 37.7% in 2022 compared to the previous year.

Djordy Seelmann, CEO of HousingAnywhere, expressed the company's vision for the expansion:

"Entering the US and the UK was clearly the next step for HousingAnywhere, as we aim to match the rising demand of internationally-mobile students and young professionals in our new active cities. With this expansion and constant innovations, we are enabling people to safely find a new home not only in mainland Europe but in more corners of the world."

With this expansion, HousingAnywhere now offers housing solutions in over 125 cities worldwide. The company, headquartered in Rotterdam, employs over 260 global talents from various nationalities and represents millions of yearly unique visitors and a vast number of available rental properties and tenants in Europe and the US.
