Diamond in the Rough
Hey y'all! I just moved into a bedroom apartment and need a roommate to take over the 2nd bedroom. It is a simple basic room with a window and a closet. Additional storage in the hall if needed. The room is on the opposite side of the apartment so it offers some privacy also next to the kitchen bathroom and backdoor.
The rest of the apartment is in shambles right now because i moved everything alone and just stuck everything in the living room for now but it will come together soon. I need to paint first. Then get bigger furniture because there is significantly more space than my last address. DM me if you want pics of the rest for size reference but it's just boxes everywhere right now.
The neighborhood is not the greatest but rent is cheap and I mind my business and go to work and have had no money problems or encounters outside of just being internally annoyed by people but that's everywhere lol. There's not many restaurants around here but there's three dollar stores in walking distance for quick shopping and two grocery stores not too far away by bus. The 79 bus runs 24 hours and will shoot you to the redline which is also 24 hrs. There is also the j14 in walking distance that will shoot express down Lakeshore drive to the loop.
Parking is street parking and there is no in unit or in building laundry but there is a laundromat two blocks away and I have a laundry cart if needed.
We are two gay men 35 and 21 both black one English speaker and one Spanish speaker so if you are bilingual that's a plus. We both work and are not big party animals but do like fun. 420 friendly house cigarettes but must be smoked on the back porch. I have two small dogs that are friendly.
Rent is 500 for one person 600 if you have a dog( must be nice to my dogs, clean, non-destructive, and quiet.) Sorry no cats. All inclusive pricing utilities included, gas water lights. I will be getting wifi soon once you move in. There will be a move in fee of 350 ( non refundable ) to get the ball rolling on the place and gauge your ability to pay. Rent will be due on the first no excuses.
Apartment is unfurnished and available July 1st
It is a nice sized apartment with great potential and if you sign a year lease I will let you choose the color you want your room painted and paint it t for you. If interested DM me more about yourself and what you are looking for. All welcome to apply but we are looking for the best fit so both women and men encouraged to apply looking for a good vibe.
