FAQ



Yes! We currently have members ages 21-55 from different countries around the world, varying sexual orientations, and religious beliefs. We don’t take age, sexual orientation, gender, race or family status into account when deciding who would be a good fit.

That being said, we are looking for people who are open-minded, and who we think would get along well with other housemates. If the culture in one house is not a good fit for you, we would love to assist you in finding another HubHaus house whose culture may fit your personality better.

Per region:

Summer: ~1-2 a month.
Fall: ~2-4/month.
Winter and spring:~4-6/month

Yes.

Each house sets their own rules, but here are some ground rules that we expect everyone to follow:

  • Inform your housemates if you have guests over for more than 3 nights
  • Inform housemates if you are having a lot of people over (5 or more)
  • No firearms or weapons in the house
  • No drugs or smoking in the house
  • Clean up after yourself - don't leave personal items in the common area and don't leave dishes in the sink
  • In general, we expect members to be respectful of their housemates, communicate often, and to treat others as you would like to be treated.

We reserve the right to ask any member to move out within 3 days if there is a safety concern, including but not limited to threatening other housemates, breaking other housemates' personal belongings or things in the house, or stealing. All tenants must pass a background check in order to live in one of our homes. We take this very seriously.

While our members enjoy BBQs and having friends over, we expect members to respect our houses, neighbors, local and federal laws. We discourage giant parties that could damage the house, invite underage drinking or cause other legal problems. That being said, having friends over on the weekends (and inviting other HubHaus members over for the occasional get-together) is encouraged!

Of course! It's your home and we hope you will open it up to your personal community. However, HubHaus asks you to respect your housemates and respect their sleeping times/let them know when you do have people over. 

None at all! We hope that you make yourself at home in your HubHaus.

At least once a month HubHaus will host an event at one of our houses invite all of HubHaus. At least 1-2 houses usually host their own events and invite the HubHaus community as well.

You can register to see a house via Skype or Facetime by booking an appointment through our website. At the time of the showing, we will give you a call to chat with you over the phone and show you the house virtually. If you end up disliking the house when you arrive, you can transfer to any other house with a 3 week notice to us. 

 

 

Aside from the incredible community of people, you'll get:

  • high-speed internet
  • furnished common rooms
  • cleaners twice a month
  • monthly house dinners (paid for by HubHaus!)
  • community events for HubHaus members (2-4 per month)
  • monthly mixers
  • connecting with people from all over the world!

We select those who show an interest in shared housing, are respectful towards others, and have passed our background check. We take into consideration work/sleep schedules, profession, and lifestyle/hobbies in order to best place people together we think might get along well.

For pre-existing homes with vacancies: all potential tenants undergo the same screening process in addition to meeting all of the current housemates. Following a house showing, feedback from current housemates will be relayed to HubHaus staff and this information will assist in deciding who we will send a lease.

This can be found in your welcome email from Hubhaus.

Our standard lease is 6 months long.

If, for whatever reason, you are unhappy with your HubHaus we allow our members the ability to transfer to any other house with a 3-week notice.
