Do you have an extra room in your home? Have you thought about the possibility of renting it out? You’re not alone. Homesharing is a growing trend that addresses a range of housing needs. For older adults, it offers financial, social and other benefits for those who want to stay in their homes. For others, often younger, it provides a solution to affordability as well as social and other needs. Join us to learn more about homesharing, how it works, it’s benefits for individuals as well as communities, and how it might work for you. Our panel includes: Noelle Marcus, Founder & CEO of Nesterly, an innovative homesharing platform designed to easily and safely match home sharers with renters. She will describe the growing and evolving homeshare market as well as her experience bringing together sharers and renters. Brenda Atchison (pictured above with one of her renters), homesharer and EBN Board member, will talk about her personal experience renting to students in the Boston area. Phyllis Segal, homesharer and EBN board member, will describe her role in helping to develop a homeshare program to address housing affordability for nonprofit workers on Martha’s Vineyard.
