How long does my Matching plan last?

Your Matching plan lasts for 60 days. If by the end of the 60 days you are not satisfied with the service, we will give you a full refund. If you haven't found the right housemate yet, we will extend your service.

How do I buy the Sharing plan?

The Sharing plan will be offered after you find your housemate. It is paid monthly and can be cancelled at any time.

What if I don't find a housemate?

If you don't find the right housemate, we'll gladly give you a full refund or extend your membership. The choice is yours.

Do I have to own the home?

No, you can be renting the home and rent out a room through Silvernest. However, we suggest you check with your landlord first to make sure you are not violating your lease.

What is required and what is optional?

You are required to use our verified user and compatibility matching features. We strongly encourage the use of background screen requests, lease templates, and automatic rent payments which are optional features.

When will I be asked to pay?

You will not be asked to pay until you've received a message from a housemate and would like to view it. Once you pay the fee, you'll have unlimited in-website communication for the duration of the membership. For more information on pricing click here.

Can I signup for free?

Yes! You can list your rental and review housemate profiles all for FREE.

Are there any fees I could incur?

Yes, if a homeowner asks you to complete a background screen there is a $29.99 charge. Your background screen is good for 90 days, and during this period you will only have to pay this fee once (you can apply to as many homes as you'd like using this one background screen). You can also request a copy of the screen.

How much does it cost to send messages to homeowners?

It's free to send messages to homeowners.
