Successful Home Sharing

The first strategy track has several sessions that focus on making use of existing housing by expanding different types of home-sharing arrangements. The fastest way to expand the housing supply in nearly every community is to make better use of the houses that already exist. Participants will learn many ways to increase and enhance home sharing in their community. Most neighborhoods have an abundance of empty bedrooms, and the average square foot per home resident has grown dramatically over the past several decades. Home sharing, when done well, can provide many benefits for all involved. Homeowners get extra money to pay for their mortgage, taxes, and other expenses. Renters can often get an affordable place to live—and sometimes pay for their housing by providing household help. Both “home-mates” can benefit from the positive social connections. This track looks at different options and practical steps that a community can take to support this low-cost, high-impact strategy.
