Singles make up majority of our tenants. But see the married pie; it's not small. Many of our tenants are married but don't want to move their families, so they end up staying single!

Marital status of SimplyGuest tenants


12% of our tenants smoke. This is not an accurate number though. A lot of people don't accept they smoke but in reality they do. How do we know this? Once in a while we receive complaints from non-smokers living in shared homes that they are not able to live in the house as their roommates smoke inside the house. When we check with the person in question they had registered themselves as non-smokers!

That said, even among the sample size that said they smoke, 31% are men and 69% are women. We just don't know who lie more: Men or Women! That may alter these percentages.
