Find flatmates that you can live with comfortably – that is the basic rule of searching for someone to live with. However, it’s true that the property and location are as important as the people. Ideally, you want to be somewhere nice and somewhere that’s accessible to your place of work. You also want to live alongside others with the same mindset, hence why young professionals and students don’t always mix well. If you’re looking to rent a room, be certain of what you’re looking for beforehand, but be aware that you may have to compromise on some things, especially if you’re browsing in London.
Whether you’re beginning from the point of having a property you need to fill with flatmates or searching for a room in a flat, you have the same sort of considerations. If you’re trying to find a roommate or flatmates for a property you’re already in, you need to think about the benefits of the apartment. A key consideration for any young professional seeking accommodation in London especially, is location. If your apartment if situated near a tube station, then make the most of that point in your advert. It helps you appeal to the sort of professionals who will be very interested in your property. Find my flatmate adverts can often overflow with unnecessary details, but, to appeal to professionals, you need to hit the nail on the head quickly. List the key points of the room on offer – whether it’s a double and has its own bathroom, how big it is, whether it’s furnished and what the rest of the flat’s like. Pictures are vital. When people are trying to find a flatmate UK wide, they often skim over the ones without pictures without even bothering to check the description. It’s true that a picture paints a thousand words, so ensure that you make the room and flat sparkle in yours. To ensure that both parties go into any agreement with suitable expectations, it’s always wise to be upfront about the type of housemate you want and what restrictions there are in the house. Honesty from the advert onwards is a good guarantor of success.
To find flatmates in London is simultaneously one of the simplest and hardest things to do for a young professional. While there are many rooms available on the market, some of the best ones are snapped up quickly and the ones that linger on advert sites are generally still there due to a flaw in the property. This could be something as simple as a bad location or a bedroom that’s far too small. Either way, the good rooms tend to be snapped up quickly and so you must move fast. This involves being in the right places in the first place. The old, traditional methods of newspaper or noticeboard ads are fairly obsolete now, especially with the high turnover of ads. Social media can be a good method of sounding out your friends for any tips, but there’s nothing like engaging with a website that specialises in room rental to get results quickly. To find a flatmate in London, then, you need to move fast and look in the right places. Search daily for fresh opportunities and, while you should jump at the right property, don’t jump at the wrong one. Arrange a viewing and ask questions about the room, but don’t believe (unless you’re in a great hurry) that you should accept a room that doesn’t meet any of your criteria just because it’s advertised on the day you first look.
