HomeShare is an arrangement where two or more unrelated people share a home to their mutual advantage. Each person has a private bedroom and may or may not share a bathroom. The common living areas, such as the kitchen and living room are shared.
Home Providers are people who want to share their homes and vary in age, health and economic status. They must be mentally, emotionally, physically, and financially self-sufficient and not require personal care giving. Some are individuals who work or may be retired. They may be individuals or married couples. The home being shared may be a house, apartment, condominium, townhouse, mobile home or a senior community. The Provider may rent or own their home; however, the majority of people sharing their homes are owners.
Home Seekers are adults of all ages looking for affordable housing that may not wish to live alone or cannot afford to do so. They may be working people, students, retired, or someone who is in a lifestyle or career transition. They must be mentally, emotionally, physically, and financially self-sufficient.
Types of HomeShareThere are two ways to participate in HomeShare, which is also referred to as shared housing. In either case, the Provider must have a private bedroom and a private or shared bathroom for the Seeker.
In a rental situation the home Provider may rent out a spare bedroom at a below market rate for extra income.
In a service exchange situation the Provider may offer a rent free or lower rent room in exchange for services such as housekeeping, cooking, gardening, transportation and companionship to name a few..
