About Silvernest

Silvernest an online homesharing platform that helps compatible homeowners and housemates find each other

and gives them the tools and support they need to create a Home Sweet Shared Home®. These creative living

situations create extra income for homeowners (about $10,000 a year on average) while providing in-home support such as cooking, cleaning and errands, all while keeping isolation at bay. This stabilizes neighborhoods and communities, provides a new stock of affordable housing for others, reduces medical costs, helps our older residents, and enables intergenerational experiences. To date, we have more than 85,000 matches, and that number is growing every day!

The Silvernest platform matches homeowners and housemates based on behavioral profiles and demographic preferences, then allows them to conduct full background checks, communicate securely in-platform, create state-specific leases or homesharing agreements, process rent payments, get insurance, and access relationship resources to prevent or address any issues that may arise.

Silvernest’s monthly membership includes unlimited matching and messaging, state-specific lease creation,

auto-rent payments and easy relisting for just $24.99/month.

Homeowners can bundle this cost into the monthly rent they charge their housemate. Silvernest is free to

renters. Many renters enhance their appeal by undergoing a proactive background screen, which is $29.99.
