/Temp house buying service offers flexibility in purchasing a new home. With the /Temp service, users can change their home whenever they want.
The Deutsche Bank Proper Home 2020 project aimed to explore new service concepts for home loan savings, also known as "Bausparen," in Germany. The project aimed to find new ways to make home loans more intuitive, personalized, and accessible for the next generation.
Designers were tasked with developing ideas and concepts that were easy to understand, straightforward, inspiring, and offered clear added value. The concepts had to be driven by customer needs and customer benefits, targeting anyone potentially thinking of home ownership at some point in their life, with a focus on young people with a regular income. The project emphasized the importance of disruptive thinking, community aspects, gamification, evolving solutions, cooperative systems, and collaboration.
The Hierarchy of Needs of the Millennials
Millennials have lower rates of homeownership due to uncertainty about their future plans and mobile lifestyles, which can make buying a house difficult. They often delay or avoid major purchases that previous generations viewed as essential.
Access, not ownership
"It's not just homes: Millennials have been reluctant to buy items such as cars, music, and luxury goods. Instead, they're turning to a new set of services that provide access to products without the burdens of ownership, giving rise to what's being called a 'sharing economy'."
