A more high-maintenance roommate may cost you the master bedroom with attached bathroom and a shelf and a half in the refrigerator. Consider what you are willing to give up to get this roommate to move in and how much “bang for your buck” there is. Price in the analogy: in the analogy: Your new roommate’s 52-week range is a good piece of information to gather on the walkthrough. What have they been doing for the last year? The range could span from being convicted of a felony six months ago (are you willing to go that low?) to a high of receiving a promotion at work. Gauge where your roommate is now in his or her 52-week range and you can better predict how he or she might behave while in your house. On the walkthrough, you might want to ask what other apartments he or she is considering. What are other people offering this person in their homes? Gauge this against your roommate’s earnings, or what this roommate can consistently offer you to improve your quality of life, be it similar lifestyle or cleanliness.

Even though you picked an emotionally unstable individual, he or she may still have a huge flat screen TV you can use or a dog that loves to go on hikes with you. Regardless of how your new roommate behaves, you still have access to these perks. Your new roommate asked for a shelf and a half in the refrigerator. What will he or she do with this investment? Cook dinner for you once a week or fill the refrigerator with empty orange juice cartons? You might think about the opportunities for fun or friendship your new roommate can offer you. If you are looking for a dynamic roommate with the same interests as you, you might want to go for a If you are just looking for a quiet, clean person to keep rent low, you might want to go with a small cap roommate Once you have located several potential small cap roommates, you can compare other attributes between them. cap roommate LARGE This comes down

volatility. How will your roommate pay rent? What kind of income stream does he or she have? What is the likelihood that you will have to cover rent and be paid back a few days later because of the manner in which your new roommate deals with finances? How high is your tolerance for commotion in your house? If you know you will not be able to function normally with someone who blasts music until 2 am every night, you might want to avoid a more “volatile” roommate.
