I own a two family home where I rent the bottom unit and I live upstairs. I am looking to get a roommate to live in the extra bedroom I have in my apartment. This will cover the rest of my mortgage and allow me to save again after the purchase and renovation of the property.
-Does anyone have any advice for finding a roommate in your own apartment? I don't know anyone who is looking to move. This feels different from advertising a whole unit. Where should I advertise?
-What kind of tenant might I attract soliciting one room in a fully furnished apartment?
-I am nervous about the trust aspect of having a roommate I do not know. I also travel for work and have 2 cats. I would need to trust that a person would not steal my things or harm my pets.
The ideal situation would be to not have a roommate but financially it would help me out a great deal. Has anyone been in a similar circumstance? Any Advice?
@Nicole Grenier kudos to you for your creativity. My thought is to reach out to someone you already know well and enjoy being around. Perhaps a female co-worker or female friend. Give them a deal and you can create a win-win. You never know, they might become a future partner 😉
