Pacaso aims to make condominium family-friendly with UrbanSitter Deal

As Pacaso continues to expand its state-of-the-art condominium model to more luxury residence destinations, its homeowner services division is working on ways to make its second homes feel like primary residences.

As Pacaso continues to expand its state-of-the-art condominium model to more luxury residence destinations, its homeowner services division is working on ways to make its second homes feel like primary residences.

The company announced a partnership with UrbanSitter, a company that makes it easier for parents to arrange childcare while on vacation.

The web service will allow Pacaso owners to confidently arrange and pay licensed healthcare providers across the range of luxury markets where the app is operational. The leader in luxury condominiums announced the partnership as part of its “Family-Friendly Second Home™ living” initiative.

UrbanSitter CEO and co-founder Lynn Perkins said in a statement that Pacaso’s commitment to quality service was the main driver behind her company’s decision.

“Pacaso and UrbanSitter provide quality experiences for families and provide solutions to make family life a little easier and more enjoyable,” Perkins said. “We are proud to partner with Pacaso.”

Pacaso offers its owners a credit for an UrbanSitter membership or for paid babysitters. All the transaction is done online.

UrbanSitter does more than offer babysitting. The company offers on-call pet sitting, tutoring, housekeeping, and even caring for elderly family members.

Owning a Pacaso home comes with a range of included services, which primarily relate to the home itself, such as interior design, prompt maintenance, planning technology and secure home storage.

However, Pacaso’s initiative to focus on family suggests the company will seek additional partners or launch in-house value-added services to accommodate the demographic diversity of its owners. Pacaso’s chief marketing officer, Whitney Curry, added in a statement that her model is as much about enriching lives as it is about making second home ownership more accessible.

“We are making an intentional investment in creating premier experiences for families with our suite of family-friendly second home amenities,” Curry said. “Many Pacaso owners enjoy their home with children or grandchildren. They crave family time, but also relish the opportunity to sneak in for a date or an adult night out.

While Pacaso homes are often high-end luxury homes in seven-figure communities, they are chosen specifically for how they will make homeowners feel at home.

“Pacaso houses are designed for children of all ages, from babies and toddlers in need of specialized equipment, to teenagers looking for Instagram-worthy moments in the pool,” the company said.

The tactic makes sense for a company that aims to reduce the stigma of second home vacancies. Many vacation homes are built to be rented out during off-peak periods, which means they can feel like someone else’s home, even to the owners.

Properties include a range of amenities designed around family entertainment and safety, ranging from baby gates, bunk beds, booster seats, designated play spaces and other needs and wants focused on young people.

There is also a range of modern media options and digital connectivity technology, tabletop games, multiple bars and dining areas, extensive outdoor living and cooking areas, swimming pools, hot tubs and hot tubs. private retirement environments.

Pacaso recently announced a promotional program linking its brand with nationally recognized luxury agents, such as Ryan Serhant and the Altman Brothers.

Urbansitter was founded in 2011 and its mobile app can be used on iOS and Android. Its more than 150,000 caregivers are available in more than 60 cities.
