6 People Who Will Reply To Your Craigslist Roommate Ad


Last February, after several years of Ramen, PBR, and suppressed tears, I was able to scrape up enough cash for a down payment on a condo in town. Over the past year, I had been lucky enough to be renting to a friend of mine to help pay the mortgage. Now that he’s moved out, I have to find a new renter because I don’t want to return to college-style sustenance. I decided to put out an ad on Craigslist to find a new renter and realized that most of the responses seemed repetitive.

2. The College Student


Hey, man. I was wondering if your room is still available. How close are you to the bars? What’s your policy on overnight guests? Are you able to do a 4 1/2 month lease? I plan on moving out at the end of the semester. Can I pay the first 3 months up front? I don’t have a job yet so I’ll be paying out of my savings. Please call me at xxx-xxx-xxxx.
