March 31, 2021, Denver, Colo. – A new way to age-in place and homeshare is coming to Denver. Odd Couples Housing is proud to announce its initiation of business in Denver. Odd Couples Housing is the perfect idea for this moment in time. We are an intergenerational roommate matching service, we connect generations by pairing them through an online matching system specifically designed to find the right roommate match.
Odd Couples Housing began in St. Louis in 2018. Many matches have left happy customers and clients continue returning to the service. The company is now expanding to Denver and serving residents in both cities.
More adults are choosing to age-in-place, people are living longer and prefer to stay in their home. The challenges associated with this can be more room in the house than needed, inadequate help around the house, loneliness or shortage of funds after retirement.
Young professionals, students and graduate students are finding it more difficult to afford the rising cost of living in Denver. The average rent for a one bedroom is $1600 per month. “That is unrealistic for many students who work while attending classes or young professionals beginning their careers,” said Erin Loughrey, Director of Colorado Development.
“Helping those young adults and students afford a safe, comfortable place to live while allowing both generations to give back, have assistance with chores, a little extra spending money, new energy in their house and peace of mind for their family is our goal,” Erin added.
The mission at Odd Couples Housing is to create a space for shared living and to connect generations. There is a larger need for our services in many cities across the United States. Everyday we receive requests from people all over the country asking when Odd Couples Housing will be available in their city.
We’re excited for what’s next and plan to expand to more cities in the future. Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to serving the Denver Colorado community.
