Advantages of house sharing

Should you be thinking about house sharing? Is it right for you? Take a look at some of the advantage find with house sharing...



The most obvious advantage of renting a room in a House share instead of having your own flat is that is costs much less. After all, you are only paying for a single room instead of a full property. House shares suit a tight budget as you get all the benefits for a cheaper price.



Location is important, you may be looking for a certain area only a short distance from the University but you can't find anything to rent on your own within your budget. As you can imagine, the chances are the rent in certain areas are higher than others due to demand and proximity to the Universities and transport links. House shares enable you to live in your ideal location for a price you can afford.



Let's admit it, living solo in a studio may become lonesome. When you have room mates, they can keep you company watching television, drinking out, cooking or even watching films. On the plus side, no need to gawp at your iPhone to see if anyone will invite you for dinner or a night out. On top of this, you are increasing your social skills which is established by being around various people. Be ready to have your calendar flooded with outings and hangouts.

  • Very efficient and go the extra mile.

  • I've been renting a from Spencer Properties for a while now and have no major complaints. I was able to move in to the property just two days after the first viewing with all the paperwork done smoothly, which was excellent as I needed somewhere at short notice, and any maintenance issues, etcetera, have been deal with pretty swiftly. Certainly a better experience than I've had with letting agencies in the past.

  • Good experience, quick with resolving problems.

  • Since we were looking for a new property with Spencer properties it was easy to book an appointment for viewing. Then we decided to move in to one of their property it was easy to sort it out. When we signed to contract and sent all our details the property was ready to move in. So far we had only one minor maintenance issue but it was sorted straight away.

  • I have been renting through Spencer Properties for a few months and so far the experience has been much better than I have had with other agencies. The processes of viewing the flat, signing the contract and moving into the property were seamless and easy. There were a couple of discrepancies between the inventory and the condition of the flat, but once we pointed them out these issues were quickly resolved. I have only had contact with Frankee so far, who has been friendly and professional throughout. Overall I have no major complaints.
