It is the "Shared" in "Shared Housing" that leads many to think twice about roommates, housemates, and other kinds of shared housing arrangements.

Yet others love the social and community aspect while they benefit from the reduced expenses and expanded personal networks.

As The Roommate Coach, I believe I can help all of these groups, by helping to emphasize the benefits while promoting ways to minimize the difficulties that arise. Many, many veterans of shared housing will agree that the difficulties do exist -- and it is well worth the effort to figure out how to deal with them.

Here are some possibilities. Please if you believe -- or even just suspect -- that The Roommate Coach might be able to help you achieve your objectives.

  • Online discussions, forums, social media etc
  • Create policies for dealing with roommate "issues"
  • Blog postings, columns, articles
