For Homeowners: Homeowners often decide to downsize from their beloved home for several to save money on the cost of housekeeping, to no longer feel like they are living in an empty nest, or to live closer to family. By sharing a home to a housemate, homeowners have someone they can call on to help around the house for free, make use of vacant rooms in their homes, and welcome a new companion into their lives.
For housemates: Homesharing is the opportunity to find an affordable place to live in a home they can trust. Rental prices have sky-rocketed in the past few years, making it nearly impossible to find rooms at reasonable prices. Whether it’s to save while going to school, put money away to buy a home of their own, or to find a way to give back to their community, housemates each have their own personal reasons for sharing a home.
