Many people 50+ are downsizing reluctantly due to financial and other pressures of living in a larger house than needed. Yet many have a spare room that they could rent out to save money and have companionship.

Two key messages relevant to house sharing emerged in this survey. One is that many people (a large minority) have been forced to downsize for reasons of financial cost and not being able to cope with a big house. Secondly, and most interestingly, 68% of repondents said they had 1-2 bedrooms ‘spare’.

So if you are a house owner who wants to stay in your local neghbourhood and wants to avoid downsizing then renting out a room could be a solution. You can read the full story here:
