HomeShare Advocate Jennifer Hammer

Jennifer Hammer may be an advocate for HomeSharing… it is her job after all… but she also embraces it as a lifestyle choice.

In this episode Jennifer explains that you need to go in with eyes wide open and, like any co-living situation (think family), there may a few bumps… but the benefits are numerous and the rewards are noticeable.

Like so many choices in life, if the concept is new to you or you’re not convinced, you can try co-housing for a short term interval.

Agnes and Jennifer covered just about every pro for the lifestyle choice, especially for Boomer Women.

    It sounds like a very good idea. I know so many women who are alone & struggling with housing issues.

      There are so many pluses, Jackie. I know amongst my friends, it’s just a matter of time until we are all in the same situation at the same time. Cost, companionship, safety, just a few of the great reasons! Thanks for listening!
