Sharing a home is cheaper than renting your own place. Sharing costs of additional rooms such as a bathroom, living room and kitchen can bring the costs down along with splitting the costs of the utility bills. We find people often opt for House Shares as it’s possible to live in a better property or in a better area and it works out more affordable than renting a property 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.
