What happens after I connect with a nice Nesterly Guest?


Congratulations! You’re just a couple steps away from finalizing your Nesterly homeshare. 

Step 1: Schedule an interview over the phone or in person to see if it’s a good fit. Check out our Interview Guide for helpful tips.

Download and review the Nesterly Homesharing Agreement. This will help you define how you would like to share your home and ensure upfront expectation setting.

Share your draft Homesharing Agreement in-person or over email and ask your potential Guest if they have any questions.

Step 2: If the conversations go well and you decide you would like to move forward, log back into www.nesterly.io to initiate the booking process.

Click ‘Confirm booking’ on the top right of your chat to finalize the dates, monthly rent amount, and any task exchange discount.

You will then be prompted to initiate your background check (for U.S. citizens) or identity verification (for international applicants) if this is your first Nesterly homeshare.

Your Guest will then review the terms of the homeshare and initiate their background check or identity verification.

Step 3: Once the checks and/or verifications are complete, you will be prompted to log back into your account to confirm the booking.

Once you confirm the booking, your Guest can finalize the booking and pay first month’s rent securely through their Nesterly account.

Then just finalize move-in logistics with your Guest, email or mail us a copy of your signed Homesharing Agreement, and leave the rest to us.

We handle monthly payments so you’re paid in a timely and secure manner. We also provide support as needed throughout the duration of your homeshare.

Step 4 (Optional): Help us build a more interconnected and affordable world by telling your friends and neighbors about Nesterly. Go to our Refer a Friend or Partners page to download and print materials to share with your community.
