Living with other people can help you to save money. Whether you are buying a house or renting, being able to split the cost with other people can make it far cheaper. This not only means that you will be able to save money, you may also be able to live somewhere that you would not have otherwise been able to afford on your own. This can be in terms of either the quality of the home or the area that it is in. If it is to do with the area, it may end up helping you further monetarily as you may have better job opportunities, save money on gas or more. Another thing that you may be able to do to help with money by living with other people is that you could buy a house and charge your housemates rent which you could use to pay off your mortgage. This would make you able to become a homeowner and get you onto the property ladder.
Living with other people can help you to develop a more rich social life. Especially if you are introverted, Having another person around you in your home can force you out of your shell which can help you to develop socially. Developing good social skills can help you in a number of ways, such as professionally and in forming relationships with others. If you get along with the people that you live with, as you really should if you choose to live with them, this can have a very positive effect on your mental health.
Living in a house by yourself will mean that you will have to maintain the home by yourself. By having other people live with you you will be able to split the work. Not only are you able to split the work, you are able to delegate the work to people based on what people are good at or like doing. For example, if someone in the flat is a particularly good cook, they will be able to handle the meals in exchange for other people taking care of some of the other work such as perhaps cleaning up the kitchen afterwards.
Once you are ready to move on to a different place, you may find that your housemates will want to move with you. This is useful as it means that you can all move together using one moving company. This will save you money collectively as you will not all have to hire a moving company individually. It will also mean that you will have help with everything that needs to be done in order to facilitate the move such as moving furniture and packing.
