Sharing a home is cheaper than renting your own place. If you live in a 1 bed flat you still need a bathroom, kitchen and living room. By sharing you split the cost of these extra rooms and all the utility bills. Many opt for House Shares as it's often possible to live in a better property or in a better area than you could afford on your own. In addition to the cost factor sharing can also be a great way to live. The social benefits of sharing can be a real advantage as revealed in a recent survey conducted by Room Quays.
