How many of these homes are out there?
If you were to go looking for purpose-built share homes for sale, you wouldn’t find many. There are 2 reasons for this:
1. Share homes are usually not purpose-built shared accommodation, therefore, they get sold as standard family homes
2. Any purpose-built share homes that are already built are rarely sold due to the rental returns they provide
Keeping this in mind, we are unable to accurately report the number of share homes are in Australia due to the inconspicuous nature of someone renting out a room in their own homes.
