Home is a very important, personal place. It’s where you feel secure enough to be yourself, unwind, and sleep at night. Sharing this space with another person can be a life-changing experience, but it’s not without complexity. Homesharing is about much more than finding a stranger to rent out a spare room—it’s about creating a living arrangement with a compatible housemate that offers financial, social, health, and many other kinds of benefits.  


At Silvernest, we’ve been watching and listening to our customers as they become part of the growing number of Americans who live with a housemate, and it has become clear: homesharing is a lifecycle with different needs at different stages. To be the best possible solution for homeowners and renters, our platform had to support this entire journey, from match to move-out day. 


Getting to Work: Redesigned with You in Mind  

After many weeks of research and user testing, we were ready to start rebuilding—and we rebuilt a lot! Now we’re ready to show the world the new Silvernest, with new features, new pricing, and new support every step of the way. Visit for the full experience, but here’s an overview of the big, exciting improvements we made.

Like being a good housemate, being a good homesharing solution provider means actively listening, and we are committed to continually asking for and acting on feedback from Silvernest users. There’s a whole new world of homesharing at Silvernest, and we are so excited to share it with you. Visit to see what it means to create a Home Sweet Shared Home®.
