When you are moving out for your first time, it’s not a bad idea to have a room mate. It’s even a better idea to have that roommate be someone that you personally know. Some of the benefits of having a roommate is that you are going to have a reduced rent and utility bills. One downside however, is that if you do not personally know the person, you will have to instill and gain the trust of them.
- Moving in with someone will drastically reduce your rent making it cheaper for you.
- You have to have an added layer of trust to your roommate if you do not know them.
- It can be a double edged sword, but you will have shared responsibilities.
