1. Choose whether you want a roommate or not
I feel you, sis, choosing whether to fly solo is a big deal. But, also getting a roomie too let’s you save a little. However, before you decide to get a roomie please find out as much as possible about your roomie-she could be a night owl with hoarding tendencies and you are just a babe with OCD tendencies.
2. Decide on a budget
Not everyone can afford to pay a ridiculous amount of money per month ( like seriously, $400 for a one-roomed cottage?), so pick something you can actually afford.
3. Think about the area you want to live in
Do you want to live near town? far from town? Or somewhere in between? Regardless, make sure the house you’re looking at has good transport links
4. Don’t commit before you have actually looked around
A house is like a Tinder Date, Swipe only when you think you have met your match.
5. Read the contract agreement
Trust me when I say, you don’t want to be kicked out because you let your friends friend stay over with all his furniture in a one-roomed house and the contract clearly says it’s not allowed.
