Welcoming D.C., Atlanta, and Boston to the Peerspace Community
At Peerspace, we love helping people come together to meet, create and celebrate. For us, it isn’t just about helping our guests find that perfect space. It’s also about building a community of hosts who share our passion for serving others. In each of our existing cities, we’ve seen this combination create a virtuous cycle for all involved.
That’s why today we’re excited to announce our presence in Washington, D.C., Atlanta and Boston. Seeing that each city is known for bringing people together and ideas to life — Atlanta in the entertainment world, D.C. in politics, and Boston in research and education — it’s no coincidence the Peerspace community has found a home in all three.
This marks over 6,000 hosts who have made their spaces available on Peerspace, a number which has more than doubled in the past year. With the addition of Atlanta, D.C., and Boston, Peerspace now has spaces available to rent in nine major markets including San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Seattle, and Austin. We’re even more humbled and inspired by our community’s growth in cities where we’ve never set foot, like Carefree, Arizona, Grand Rapids, Michigan and Londonderry, Vermont. There are now spaces available in 45 of the 50 US states.
In Washington D.C., Atlanta and Boston, we already have over 250 spaces to choose from with many more on the way. We have high hopes for what the people of D.C. will do in this technicolor church, presidential cottage, and 150-year old synagogue. Or what our friends in Atlanta will create in this set from the Walking Dead, mansion built by a TV Tycoon, and loopy circus training center. Maybe Bostonians will get fancy in this colonial farmhouse, go on air in this fully-operational TV studio, or get creative in an ad agency’s artsy office.
We’re already seeing our new hosts generate enough extra income from renting on Peerspace to expand their business and fuel passions of their own. After listing their space just two months ago, our top host in D.C. has already earned $20,500 from their Peerspace bookings. For comparison, top Peerspace hosts in other parts of the country are making just over $90,000 each year. One of our Atlanta hosts, Leslie, started renting out her photography studio on Peerspace in March and has already seen it booked 15 times. In her words, “It’s allowed me to meet some incredibly creative people and has increased my revenue from the studio, so I have the freedom to pursue my career as a photographer full-time.”
We hope you’ll help us welcome the newest members of our community by exploring their spaces. If you’re interested in sharing your space and becoming a host on Peerspace in any city you can learn more here.
