How much do you guys spend on rent? With my current job I make 1300 a month, rent would be 600. My parents are covering my car insurance.
You want a roommate?Really know your roommate and see how they live first in their current residence. It isn't healthy to hate aspects of people you live with, it leads to a lot of resentment, which is someone living in your head rent free. I've only ever had one good roommate. I prefer to be on my own, unless it is a woman I am intimate with.Check the neighborhood dude. How important is a car? Parking spots and travel times to work, food and getting away.#1 rule, LIVE ON THE FUCKING TOP FLOOR. People are dickheads and you will regret not having the top floor.For the love of God, if it has yelp reviews, check out how the owners treat their tenants.Clean up after yourself and open the windows when the weather is agreeable so your house doesn't feel and smell stale.
live on the top floor, that's a good one that I wasn't thinking of. Another advantage is no mice or insects get in as easily. Also all the heat travels upwards so the people on the bottom floor end up paying the lions share of the heating bills. The top floor can almost be too hot at times.
