Finding a roommate can be difficult and stressful, especially if you’re in the market for a complete stranger. Here are four tips for finding that perfect roommate to share your Kent apartment with:
- Meet in advance: Meet with your potential roommate a few times to make sure the two of you are compatible. You can meet in a relaxing environment like a local coffee shop, which will help you to get to know each other casually.
- Use Craigslist, but with caution: While Craigslist can be a bit nerve-racking, the fact remains that it’s one of the best options to find a roommate. Be leery and do your research, though it can be a great and powerful tool for you to use.
- Research online: The Internet is a wonderful resource for doing a bit of digging on a potential roommate. Before you meet, search the person’s name in Google to make sure there are no red flags.
- Think twice before going with a best friend: Living together can take a toll on a relationship, and while it may seem convenient to move in with a best friend, you may be wise to not do so.
