We would be happy to help you write about the growing trend towards house sharing and co-living, being driven by both financial and social factors. These pages and links can help you:

Research - we keep an eye on new research and reports related to house sharing and co-living around the world and have also conducted our own research in conjunction with media partners and our community of registered users.
