There are many homeowners in the area with extra rooms in their property, and renting one out to one of their clients offers many benefits.To learn more about Home Share SLO and the work they are doing, watch this short video.

I’m delighted to be joined today by Stephanie Teaford, an Outreach Coordinator with Home Share SLO. She’s here to talk about this fascinating organization she is part of and the work they are doing to solve a need in the community that also solves a need in the real estate market.

Home Share SLO is a local, county-wide nonprofit organization that matches homeowners who are looking to rent out extra rooms to people in the area who are seeking safe, affordable housing.

Back in 2016, they recognized a need for affordable housing with the growing number of low-income, single senior women that are in the community and the special needs they have around housing. A lot of these folks don’t feel comfortable navigating the market to find their own roommate, so we saw this opportunity for some assistance to try and mobilize more rooms in the housing market.

You might know neighbors or relatives that would be perfect for this program. Stephanie and her team are great at putting matches together. This program fills multiple needs, including helping their renters feel safe and secure while also providing homeowners with extra passive income. The social connection that comes along with having someone in your daily life can be extremely valuable for both sides as well.

There is a huge need for affordable housing in our community, and this is one of the better solutions I’ve found. If you know someone who is in need of affordable housing, reach out to Stephanie at (805) 215-5474 or online at www.homeshareslo.org, where you can learn a lot more about this great organization.

If you have any other questions about real estate in SLO, we are always here to answer them. Just give us a call or send us an email today. We look forward to hearing from you.
