Gurgaon has been attracting Expats for over 15 years, in fact the first few came from Japan. With Maruti Suzuki setting up base in Gurgaon, the journey of expats moving to Gurgaon started. Over the years, various multinational corporations have set up their operations in Gurgaon, this has without a doubt led to an increase in the inflow of expats planning to live in Gurgaon.
World over, expats do not generally like to invest in furniture. It creates a capital asset which reduces in value and comes with hassle of disposing it off while leaving the country. Given that, they rather look for furnished apartments in Gurgaon.
While this was good news for Gurgaon, it was not really helping the expats finding homes that would fit their original lifestyle back home. There was a lack of quality homes that expats could relate to, creating a void for quality furnished homes in the market.
There was a definite need of good quality homes that expats could relate to and call home. While there were a few existing players in the market offering furnished homes in Gurgaon, however, they were lacking finesse, class and functionality. In earlier days, all one could expect in the name of furnished homes would be very basic sofas, dining table, beds and mattresses in the apartment.
This all continued until one start-up disrupted the market by bringing style and finesse into furnished homes. Vaya Homes, a start-up in this space has been busy serving expats in Gurgaon with what they like to call – Homes with a Soul. Furnished Homes offered by Vaya Homes are not over the board, but warm enough to feel at home, delivering a cozy, warm living space for their expat guests.
Harpreet Thukral along with Shilpa Bhargav had been part of the real estate industry long enough to identify this as an opportunity. The idea struck them after looking at various homes that were being offered in the market by other service providers, these homes definitely lacked the warmth needed. Today, Vaya Homes has become synonymous with Quality Furnished Apartments in Gurgaon offering the much needed classy and warm homes for Expats moving to Gurgaon.
