What we're about
In the beginning, Let’s Share Housing was geared towards helping seniors and baby boomers find affordable housing options and/or companionship through cohabitation. It soon became apparent, however, that due in part to the housing shortage in Portland, shared housing is something of great interest to people of all ages, and we opened Let’s Share Housing up to everyone.
We hold monthly meetups on the East and West sides of Portland, where people can meet as either a householder/homeowner, who has a home to share with others, or as a Home Seeker, who is looking for a place to rent.
The formula of our meetups is as follows: we meet at a quiet place for introductions and a discussion. This portion lasts about 2 hours. Then we move to a nearby location for coffee and conversation. We encourage you to attend this second half of the Meetup; it’s a great way to get to know others in a more relaxed environment; an opportunity for you to mingle and get better acquainted with those you found to have compatible lifestyles from the earlier portion of the meeting.
Our website, www.LetsShareHousing.com, is a great resource where users can create a profile for others to see, browse the profiles of others, message potential housemates, as well as access shared housing resources and receive and offer expert advice. www.LetsShareHousing.com is a great way to find a housemate in the Portland Metro Area!
Thank you for your interest in Let’s Share Housing! Please come to a meetup and see what we are all about; we're looking forward to meeting you face-to-face so we can learn more about you and your shared housing journey!
