I have been thinking for a few months that I may try and find a roommate. I have 2 bedrooms and a bathroom that are never touched unless family comes to visit (and then only one of the rooms is used). So, anyway, how much does your roommate pay per month (or do you pay if you are the roommate)? I have always lived alone in a 1-bedroom apartment, so I have never had a roommate before. I know this probably varies by area- back where I am from in Michigan, I rented a one-bedroom apartment for $350 a month. Here, where I live in NC, you can not touch a one-bedroom apartment for under $700 a month. I have looked on Craigslist and rooms for rent vary from $350 to 700 a month (and most were a bedroom in an apartment or townhouse- I live in a regular house). $700 is way ridiculous- I was thinking more in the $300-400 range, but am really unsure. With the possibility of being laid off, I am trying to be proactive with my finances. Things would be much easier financially with a roommate. But, I am clueless!
