Share Your Home
Many people find they have unused bedrooms and space. You might be an empty-nester or one whose previous workspace can be converted to a bedroom. You might have a walkout finished basement or an available attic loft. Put that space to good use. There are many benefits:
- produce income to offset high property taxes.
- conserve resources by sharing.
- help provide needed workforce housing in the region.
- obtain home, property or living assistance.
- build community and reduce isolation.
- live mindfully with less environmental impact.
