Single-family Build to Rent developer-operator Casa by Moda will offer residents at its upcoming Casa developments an app that will enable them to stay connected 24/7.

The MyCasa app will allow residents to view and book trusted at-home services from dog walking to window cleaning, join community groups and events, chat on the community forum, report maintenance requests, and contact the Casa customer service team directly.

The exclusive MyCasa app uses a tailored version of Spike’s resident engagement portal – Spike Living. It has been adapted to suit suburban rental communities because of the differences between these communities and Build to Rent platforms.

“As custodians of the communities we operate in, our aim is to pioneer positive change to the rental market and improve the way people live. By partnering with Spike, we can provide all Casa residents with this innovative technology, allowing residents to access so much more on-demand – from partners and services to virtual concierge, to reporting a maintenance request. They can also find out about the latest news and happenings in their neighbourhood, which is crucial to connecting SFH residents to their neighbours and embedding our Casa into the wider community.”

Sarah Nelson, Operations Director, Casa by Moda

The app is crucial across Casa by Moda’s SFH communities, given the nature of living in suburban and city fringe locations. It is important that residents feel connected to their landlord and community, whether that’s in-person or virtually. 

Casa by Moda’s first neighbourhood to launch – Casa, Vista Park in Glasgow, Scotland – has begun to welcome residents who will be the first to use the app. The development comprises 156 new homes – a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments, alongside two, three and four-bedroom houses. Community spaces at the scheme includes a wildlife area and two play parks suitable for families and young children. 

“We are delighted to be expanding on our partnership with Moda, with the roll out of Spike Living across their latest Casa by Moda neighbourhoods. The MyCasa resident portal will not only make residents’ lives easier by streamlining communication and providing access to on-demand community events, but also empower residents to actively participate in shaping their communities.”

Jeremy Heath-Smith, CEO, Spike

Casa by Moda is the single-family homes division of investor, developer and operator Moda Group, who are aiming to secure an initial 5,000 new family homes in suburban areas within the next three years. The company also has additional schemes launching across the Yorkshire region and beyond in 2024.
