"The rent is $3,000 for three BR/Bath. How do we divide it?"


          

I'm in the master bedroom with an attached bathroom.

Other two bedrooms share a wall, middle size bedroom has a bathroom attached too, smallest bedroom uses the hall bathroom as her own.

Obviously I should pay the most.

But before the rent was gonna be $3200 and we worked it to basically 988, 1070, and 1175 plus or minus a few cents.

We found out the rent was $200 cheaper so at first we were all "great that's $70 less each"

But I did the math and that's more than $3,000.

Help yo

i've always just split it equally no matter the room size.

but if your room is that much bigger than the rest you can split it up by square footage and pay that way.

In response to Reply # 0

And split the common areas by 3

So if the sq ft rent is say $10 per, multiply by your larger room and bathroom, they do the same for their individual bedrooms, sit their bath in two and y'all sit the general areas by 3

Add it up...voila


does it really matter?

wonder what bin's doing?

He did to get he numbers before

I assume it's similar to what the person in this thread did to break the numbers down

Like each share is around 30%, with mine being the most

20. "Just drop the rent for each proportionally to what you agreed to before"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Original:


$988
$1070
$1175

Equals $3233

So (Approximates Below)

$988 = 31% of $3233
$1070 = 33% of $3233
$1175 = 36% of $3233

Just multiply those percentages times the new rent of $3000 to get everyone's NEW share.

$930
$990
$1080

There you go.

The roommate said we should recalculate using the methodology and then figure the split.

That's fair.

Again I never thought it would be totally equal since I have the master bedroom

$3K a month out here will rent a 3000+ sq/ft HOUSE with a pool and would pay your monthly utilities with plenty of change to spare.

Me and my fiancé share a place in a nice area. Two bedrooms, one bath, plus a parking spot and we pay around 1100 a piece. Additionally the two months they gave us rent free.

So that's less than either of us were paying solo.

I'm getting career fast tracked, she's able to expand her work.

So those things that may take a decade elsewhere are happening in a small set of years for us.

39. "wage requirements??? tha hell is that???"
In response to Reply # 30


  

          

>And if you do you'll probably make too much money do to wage
>requirements.

This is a very foreign concept to me. There hasn't been a single place I've lived in that had such an absurd requirement.

You can't live here because you can REALLY afford it??? FOH.

41. "i hadn't either. But it stabilizes rent a bit and guarantees some divers..."
In response to Reply # 39


  

          

There were some apartments that I really liked. But if you made more than 35k you couldn't live there.
I imagine people find ways to get around this and that also these properties get government subsidies in some form.

I thought the wage ceiling was oppressively low, but that's on me, and I'm not gonna be one to complain about making "too much money".

52. "I mean... you can cop two bedrooms in Scottsdale for $1000/month"
In response to Reply # 30


  

          

I can't wrap my head around wanting to live somewhere that damned expensive.

I can think of a few cities across the US where $1000 a month would net you a 3 bedroom apartment in a decent part of town.

In response to Reply # 59


  

          

there are IT jobs all across the country. Being in my profession I get hit up for jobs/contracts everywhere imaginable so working in Scottsdale is not abnormal in the least bit.

As for who would I date? Someone from the surrounding area. There's a shitload of transplants in metro Phoenix along with locals of many races, ethnicities, and sexual orientations. The chances of finding someone suitable to date out there is definitely stacked in your favor.

29. "To be fair, DC is a GREAT launching point for transitioning to "adulthoo..."
In response to Reply # 22


  

          

I'd say in some respects unparalleled for most professionals.
For the arts, NY is probably where it's at; for tech the West Coast.
But for lawyers, contractors, politics (obviously), government, military ... etc career building (which includes but not limited to establishing a high salary floor, networking, building government rank) DC is nearly untouchable.
I probably won't stay here too long, but for this phase in life, for a lot of professionals; it's hard to top DC

In response to Reply # 43


  

          

Too damn expensive and not really that "cool".
There's more affordable and better options for recreational living near by ish.
Baltimore, Richmond, parts of Delaware, Philly ... all seem much cooler for personal life than here.

That said, I met a great woman, enjoyed solid women, have made good friends and associates, and jump started my career.

Another place in life, I wouldn't spend here.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

you feel like you should pay more because they share a wall and you have the bigger bedroom? How did you wind up getting the master bedroom?

if y'all don't split that shit evenly! Your guest cannot use the "public" bathroom have them use YOUR bathroom and so on.

In response to Reply # 32


          

Girl that out the ad together originally saw the apt and wanted the middle priced room

She advertised the least expensive room and it got snapped up instantly

My room I guess they tried a few diff people for and it worked when I met her and I mey the other roommate during the walk through.

Edit: $1102, $1003, $895 if you want to be technical.

$100 a month for a little bit more walking around room? NOPE!!

We're paying equal shares. At the most, maybe $25 more for the attached bathroom

This is crazy to me on a few levels. That doesn't include utilities or food, right? The amenities this environment provides have to be worth the rent cost.

Maybe in SF, but I don't think so in NYC and LA. A lot of people make middle-America ass wages in these expensive cities.
