Cheaper to Have a Roommate...

January 22nd, 2014 at 07:29 pm

I've been shopping for a new place (hopefully I've found THE place and an apartment will be available when it's time for me to move).

I would LOVE to have my own place and pay less than $400 all inclusive. But alas, it isn't so...

After looking, I've come to the conclusion that it is cheaper in this area to have a roommate.

Now the difficulty is finding a place that someone would like to rent with me since my roommate is moving out.

I figured $500 with their own room and bathroom. It's not furnished but the rest of the place will be. The place I found is a nice place with indoor storage in the apartment as well. And some other perks such as garbage disposal, microwave, A/C, pantry, washer/dryer and dishwasher. Although it doesn't have a gym or pool.

But I still think it's a good deal. Small community (24 apartments total) but very nice place and close to post (which being military is a bonus).

I'm glad I found this place I'm just hoping I can get this place when the time comes. Smile

    I suggest Advertising for a room mate on all the free sites you can find. There are lots of ads on Kijjiji, the local Craigslist and bulletin boards. We see them as full 8.5'' x 11'' sheets taped to light standards, and cards on the bulletin boards at the nearby grocery stores.

    i'm already advertising on roommate.com but i'll also checkout the ones you mentioned (kijjiji looks like it's a Canadian site tho Frown ). thanks!
