My friend was looking for a roommate. Her lease was almost up for the apartment she was staying in and she thought it would be easier on her finances to have a roommate. I told her that I was also looking for an apartment and a roommate and that I thought us living together would work out perfectly.
I started searching for apartments for rent in Topeka KS. I found several listings that would be affordable with a roommate. I asked her what price range she was thinking about renting and she told me what she paid at her last one. If we could find something that was that price and split all the rent and bills, we would be able to make it.
I searched for apartments in that price range and found a few of them to look at. I set up arrangements to look at these in person at a time that she was also available. We found a really great apartment that was a little higher priced than the one she lived in, but not by much. We decided to rent that apartment and were able to move in at the end of the month.
So far it has been great having a roommate. We get along good and always have. Being able to split the bills has worked out for both of us. I don’t think I would be able to afford to live on my own just yet and I couldn’t have found a better person to move in with. She has been my friend for years and we see eye to eye on many different things. I am glad I found this apartment and we both like living in the area we are in.
