Doing More With Less: Living Without a Roommate

By January 26, 2013

Follow me on:

Although there are many benefits to having a roommate, one advantage of living alone is that you've got the whole apartment to yourself. So, if you find yourself wanting more space and you live with a roommate, you might consider renting the same size apartment next time around but without a roommate.

This means you'll be responsible for the full rent, but keep in mind that sharing a larger apartment with a roommate would also mean more rent.

The decision to live with a roommate is more than just financial. It's also a personal decision that depends on your needs and circumstances. Here's some guidance to help you weigh the pros and cons of living with a roommate so you can make your own decision.
