Why a house share is a great idea

Right now the number of people living in shared homes is increasing month on month, mainly because so many of us have been priced out of the market when it comes to buying a property, but there are both financial and personal reasons why people house share.

Why rent in a house share?

1) Moving Area

If your job or another reason is taking you to a new area, a house share can be a great short term solution before you get settled and find out where you want to live. Some people house share with this intention but it becomes long term accommodation. Also if you don’t know anyone in your new area a house share offers some instant friendships and companionship.

2) Leaving Home

Some people can’t wait to leave home and others are more nervous. With a house share you have the independence and responsibility of your own place, but also some house mates to have fun with.

3) Lonely

Some people love their own company, but for others it can be extremely lonely so choose to house share.

4) Cost

We’re all affected by the economy and House Shares are an extremely financially attractive living solution. At Mistoria Estate Agents we have house shares with fully inclusive rents. This means everything is included, right down to the linen on your beds. 

Living in a house share is usually much cheaper than renting your own place. You still have your own bedroom (which has a lock so plenty of privacy) but the bathroom, kitchen and living room are communal areas. Effectively by sharing you split the cost of these extra rooms. By sharing it’s often possible to live in a better property or in a better area than you could afford on your own.
