MIDDLESEX COUNTY, NJ - Do you own a home and find it difficult to meet all your expenses? Could you benefit from the extra income gained from sharing your home? HomeSharing may be the answer for you.
Homesharing is a not-for-profit organization that helps people to stay in their homes by matching them with those looking to share a home because of the high cost of available housing. HomeSharing screens both home owners and those seeking to share a home and provides options for each to find the right match. HomeSharing produces a contract agreed upon by both parties to guide the shared living arrangement and stays in touch to help out when further support is needed.
In one recent example of a HomeSharing success, Kimberly who owns her home but was finding it a stretch to cover all her expenses as a senior citizen with two part-time jobs was introduced to Sarah who recently lost her husband. Sarah’s loss was compounded by the loss of income to cover her living expenses. The two women hit it off and soon after meeting, HomeSharing completed a shared living agreement and the new shared living arrangement and relationship bloomed.
If you are looking for shared affordable housing, HomeSharing may be a great solution. In every living arrangement, a private bedroom is offered and all common living areas are shared, including living room, dining room and kitchen. The rent ranges from $500 - $800; depending on the request of the home owner. Our program does not have a fee and caters to individuals of every demographic residing in Central New Jersey in Middlesex, Somerset, or Hunterdon counties
HomeSharing is a safe alternative to finding a roommate. Homeowners with additional space, also known as ‘Providers’, benefit from the additional income but may also benefit from companionship or help to stay in their home. Those entering a home to share, also known as “Seekers”, will find more manageable living expenses in an economy where the housing rates are astronomical.
