December 12, 2008, Newsletter Issue #146: Friends or Not?

Tip of the Week

You've found the perfect rental and roommate hunting is your next step. Be careful considering friends as roommates. Even the best of friendships can perish as the result of a roommate arrangement gone bad.

Before deciding to ask a friend to be your roommate, consider whether or not your friend is reliable and pays bills on time. Will he or she be respectful of your wishes? Do you share the same or similar living habits and expectations? Will you feel comfortable asking for your friend's portion of the rent, even if he or she is struggling with finances? If the answer to these questions is no, choose someone else for an optimal rental and roommate arrangement.
