How It Works

Overview

HousingMatch.org is a private online shared housing community. Members access the database to post and search ads for Housing Wanted, Rooms for Rent and Housing Offered. Roommate members who share housing are prescreened and submit their background check reports before posting an ad. Landlords can post an ad by creating an account. Agencies can create accounts, post and search ads, and refer new members. Scroll down for more information.
