Transitions can sometimes be challenging. They can be a turning point that enhances your life. Due to a change in relationships or a need to reduce housing costs, shared housing may be an excellent option for you. Economic challenges may also present opportunities to re-prioritize or downsize. Perhaps your seldom used guest room could provide additional monthly income. Perhaps your adult children have left home and you would enjoy renting an extra bedroom to a college student or someone with common interests. Perhaps you already have a friend in mind, and just want to check your compatibility. It may be a time for you to expand your community and share resources.
Every exit is an entry somewhere else.
