Are you turning 40 soon and thinking about getting a roommate? Not to worry, you’re not the only 40 year old who has considered getting a roommate. You'll find many suitable roommates who are in and around your age who have also been won over by the charm of flat-sharing. We're going to explain why it's not too late to get a roommate at 40.

A great solution during difficult times

Getting a roommate may be the perfect solution to help you through some periods of your life which you're finding difficult. With a roommate, comes cheaper rent and cheaper daily costs, so no matter what age, it saves you significant amounts of money. During times of divorce, separation or massive life changes, having a roommate can be a great way of surrounding yourself with others at what could otherwise be quite a lonely time, while generating additional income at the same time. All you need to do is create an online accommodation advert to find your next roommate.

The benefits of having a roommate

Finding a roommate when you're 40 is above all, a great idea. Not only do you save money on rent and charges every month, but you also get the opportunity to meet new people, build new relationships and experience the lifestyle of other people. It's often hard to make new friends or even have a social life if you work a full time job. However, having a roommate makes it easier to be social, and in addition to allowing you to socially interact with your roommate on a daily basis, it also opens you up to new friend groups. With a steady rise in rent prices in the U.K, more and more people are looking towards flat-sharing. Furthermore, with a growing population of people from all different backgrounds, getting a new roommate is also a learning experience.

If you want to experience something new, meet new people, or simply want to save on the rent, then getting a roommate is the perfect choice for you, no matter what your age is!
