Should I Get A Roommate?

Is there a downside to roommates?

Depends on the roommate!  Lots of renters think the best thing is to make your friends your roommates, but really what you should be looking for in a roommate is someone who likes to live the same way you do!  It is also important that you can trust your roommate to pay their share of the bills, rent, deposits and fees.  Remember, your roommates' financial responsibility can actually affect your credit, so choose wisely!  That said, roommates are a great way to share rental expenses, and apartment maintenance and even have a friend who is always around!
