Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Shared Housing – Making Your House Work for the Long Run

Housing Options - Is Shared Living In Your Future?

Housing Options - Is Shared Living In Your Future?

Wednesday lecture: Explore Shared Housing Options   Perhaps it’s the economy or an aging population but many more people are considering shared housing as an option that might work for them.

It’s not a new idea –  grandparents have often moved in with their children and grandchildren, young couples bunked in with the in-laws in order to save money, tenants have dealt with steep rental costs by sharing apartments with strangers who become roommates and perhaps friends.

At the same time that some shared housing options have been almost eliminated – single room occupancy buildings for example – others have joined the mix – with several cohousing developments thriving in Cambridge.

This Wednesday several local organizations are sponsoring a discussion on Shared Housing at the next Making Your Home Work for the Long Run workshop.  Sponsoring organizations include:

  • Staying Put Working Group
  • Somerville Cambridge Elder Services
  • Cambridge Council on Aging
  • Somerville Council on Aging
  • SCM Door to Door Transportation

Panelists will share their experiences and information about various forms of shared housing including home sharing, coops, joint family living quarters and cohousing.  Small group discussions will touch on things to consider and questions to ask when considering some form of shared housing.

The workshop will be held at the VNA Facility, 3rd floor, 259 Lowell Street, Somerville MA on Wednesday, June 15, 2011 from 5:45 to 7:30 pm.  Light refreshments will be available from 5:15 pm.  The event is free and open to the public.   Reserve a spot by calling 617-628-2601 ext. 601 or by emailing Susann at [email protected]
