Flatshares in Portsmouth are a good option when trying to find accommodation in the overcrowded city of Portsmouth. Flatsharing is a great way to save money on rent and utilities, as they are split between roommates. You would have to share a kitchen, living room and in some cases a bathroom, but moving to a new city, this is a great way to network and make some new contacts. House shares tend to be an affordable option for young professionals and allow people to live in areas of the city that would previously be unattainable. Popular and expensive areas like Southsea and Copnor cost a lot in monthly rent for a one or two bedroom apartment, but the price for a bedroom in a houseshare is still fairly reasonable.
