Another Resource for Shared Housing – 55 Places

Bill Ness writes in 55places.com that the need for new housing options for Boomer women as they grow older is rising every year. The number of us who are single – whether due to death, divorce, or choice – is huge, and is growing.  Many of us are turning to shared homes, and in that case joining together with friends or family members can be an obvious solution, but for many, it’s not an available option, or perhaps not a practical solution because family members either live far away, or aren’t perhaps the people we’d find most easy to live with. Friends could turn into roommates, of course, but there are also cases where some friends might not be your most compatible housemates. Boomer women are turning to other options, using services (like Roommates4Boomers, of course!) to help them in their quest for the perfect roommate.  This move toward shared living is growing – it’s quite exciting!

    I am 66 and have a desire to share my 3 bdr, 2 bath, Maid’s room, 1/2 acre yard home with a woman or man. I am very healthy and would prefer my roomy to be so too, as much as is possible. I live in Uptown Phoenix in a beautiful part of town. All common areas of my home and garage can be shared.
    What are my options for finding a roommate and what value can I expect for something like this?
    For me…it would help with the costs of maintaining a home and offer company, and allow me to do some traveling.
    I own a cat.
    Any suggestions for finding a mature roomy?
    Ally

      Most definitely, Ally! Just click on “Roommates4Boomers Website” in the black menu bar above, and then join the Roommates4Boomers community, which is exclusively for women over 50 seeking roommates! It’s free to join; you can search among other members to look for a potential roommate – and other members can search for you as well. You don’t pay anything until you want to contact someone who looks like a likely candidate. Then it’s just $29.99 per month to send messages to as many matches as you want.
