Anyone know how to get deals on rent?
I recently graduated and got a job in a large city (US) and am making decent money, but I'm honestly wondering how most people get by. It's $1200+/month for small one bedroom places, which is going to mean spending 30%+ of my take home just on rent and utilities. Anyone know any renting "hacks" to get decent places on the cheap? If you offer to pay cash for a full year you think you'd get a deal? Anyone have experience rooming with randoms off Craigslist? The idea freaks me out a bit but it might be my only option. Maybe it's time to get a side hustle going as well...
Fwiw, I've been staying at a friend's place but need to be out by the end of the month.
Why are you freaking out over having roommates?
