Step-By-Step To Success

Our step-by-step process works. We have built it for success. Each step includes everything you need to know and everything you need to do to find compatible homemates and a home to live in together.

Step 1: Learn

To begin, check out our Getting Started articles here. The more you learn now about shared living, the better prepared you will be for the next steps.

If you need some help to navigate our website, we provide you with an individual coach. Check it out here.

Step 2: Become a Member and Create Your Profile

Your member profile will explain what you are looking for and let other members know something about you.

Check out our membership options here.

Step 3: Shop for Compatible Homemates

Once your profile is complete, you can search our Member Directory to find compatible homemates. A video helps you learn how to do it, and we provide supportive articles and a checklist to help you prepare to meet and talk with potential homemates.

Step 4: Chat with potential homemates

Members can send text messages to get to know one another, and then set up in-person meetings with one or more potential homemates. You can even set up a private messaging group where only you and those you invite can participate.

Step 5: Co-create a Homemate Agreement

You will learn about homemate agreements and why they are essential for success. You will discover how-to create an agreement or get support from one of our coaches to help you build your agreement.

Step 6: Find your new home

You might choose to live with a member who owns her home. Or as a homemate group of two or more, we will show you how to find a home that is perfect for all of you. Your homemate group could also choose to work with one of our real estate investors who will purchase the home you want and then become your landlord.

Step 7: Living the dream

Even after your homemate group has moved in to your new home, we are here to help. You can join our “Living the Dream” forum and chat with other homemate groups about what’s working and what isn’t. Or if you run into a snag, you can get individual help from one of our coaches.
