FriendsWhoLend is a web based application that allows users to lend each other their FriendsWhoLend properties (homes).
“The concept of this property sharing platform was born from many years of talking with friends around the globe, usually over a glass of wine, where they described their second or third homes. When asked if they rent it, almost universally they all say " No, but I lend it to friends.”
FriendsWhoLend lies the concept of “sharing” with friends.
Many people have a second (or third) apartment/home that is rarely used. The owners are happy to have their friends stay there, but are not comfortable with having complete strangers renting it out. The fear is that strangers will not treat it with the same care as they would if it were their own.
With FriendsWhoLend, the property owners will be sure that members of the community will treat their properties as their own as each member has their own property invested, and these are friends or friends of friends…
As it was already mentioned, a group is formed between friends and friends-of-friends thus creating a so-called ‘closed’ community. Each member of this community contributes access to their properties and, in exchange, they are granted with the access to other properties in the FWL network.
There is no cost to join, and all properties are considered to be equal in terms of value. These properties are “lent” for use by members of the community through an automated calendaring function, stored in the FWL community
