Sharing a home can be part of the answer for housing costs: Belfast hosts talk about house sharing

Is renting a home or apartment by yourself beyond your means? Do you have a large home that may be too expensive for you to upkeep by yourself? Could you use a little extra income to help pay the expenses of your home? Would you prefer to not just have your cat to talk to? Is your house too big for just you?

Join others Monday January 27, at 6 p.m. at the Belfast Free Library to hear from two homeowners who have shared their homes with others for years. Andree Bella and Elizabeth Garber will talk about the ups and downs of renting space to others, what it has meant in their lives and what it might mean for others.

Others who have rented in someone’s home and what that’s like will speak, as well.

The idea of this discussion is to help people who perhaps would consider other forms of housing that might offer many advantages for both the renter or the home owner.

Housing in Belfast and the area is a major issue with many experiencing a lack of affordability, higher taxes, increased costs of living, and lack of friendship and company. Sharing a home can be an option for many people. This  discussion is meant to illustrate one small opportunity to address some aspects of this issue.

Where: Belfast Free Library, Monday evening, January 27, at 6 p.m.

The Belfast Free Library is at 106 Church Street in Belfast. For more information contact Mike Hurley 207-338-1975 or mike@pilut.com
