Remember When... Remember when every town had a boarding house. The place the single lady from the mercantile lived or the librarian or the man who did all the lawns in town lived. They each had a room and SHARED a common living space with kitchen privileges. Remember when at least one person on your block had a Grandparent living with them, providing them all with AFFORDABLE housing. In today's world many of our island neighbors find themselves in need of low cost safe housing just as their grandparents did many years ago. Rural homeless are not on the street begging for handouts but are the working poor who cannot afford first and last month's rent and they are also folks who may need an extra three hundred dollars per month to avoid foreclosure. Whidbey Island Share a Home is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing an affordable housing alternative for Whidbey Island. We help low income individuals and families find safe affordable housing with home providers who want to share their homes. We do reference and criminal background checks on all applicants before approval to the program. WISH does not charge for this service but relies on the generosity of the community to continue our work. Please Email: WISH@ Whidbey.com or go to our web site at www.whidbeywish.org for an application.

"A MAN WHO STOPS ADVERTISING TO SAVE MONEY IS LIKE A MAN WHO STOPS A CLOCK TO SAVE TIME." – HENRY FORD Henry Ford had it right. Cutting your advertising budget when the market slows down is almost always a bad decision. You can't keep your listings a secret and expect to sell them. And when your competitors reduce their advertising, your strong marketing effort will make you more visible than ever. Keep the advantage of Homes~Land on your side.
