When looking to rent an apartment, there are a million questions for you to consider. Where in Cape Coral would you like to live? Is it close to public transportation? But the most important question is how much space do you really need? Renting a two bedroom apartment may sound stressful if you plan to live alone, but if you are interested in a roommate, it makes perfect sense.
Renting a two bedroom with a roommate could come out cheaper than living in a one bedroom by yourself. You’ll share the rent, utilities, cable bill, and even groceries if you choose to. Living alone may not be in your plan and/or budget, so renting a two bedroom with a roommate is a great alternative.
In addition to saving money, you’ll be able to enjoy human interaction and companionship when you’re at home and you can share the chores (the not-so-fun things). Chores such as cleaning, paying bills, and taking out the trash won’t solely be your responsibility.
If you are looking to move into an apartment on your own and can afford a two bedroom, you can use the second bedroom as a study, an office, or a second living room or even a game room! If you have a home-based business or work from home instead of in the office, you’ll be able to shut the door at the end of the day and the work you have left won’t stare you in the face until the next day. The extra closet space will be nice if you have a large shoe collection or just need extra storage space.
Whether you choose to live alone or with a roommate, there are clear pros and cons. Consider your lifestyle, your goals, and your plan before moving in with a roommate or choosing to live on your own.
