I'm looking for someone to take the second room in a large two-bedroom/two bath apartment in the Museum District as soon as Memorial Day weekend. Rent is $575/person and we'd split the cost of utilities. The owner is in the process of renovating the apartment so I don't have pictures at the moment, but it's just a couple of blocks from Carytown, has a washer and dryer in the basement for your use and private off-street parking. Your bedroom will be unfurnished and although I have enough furniture to cover the rest of the place, if you have stuff you'd like to add to the mix, there is definitely more than enough space for it.
A little about me: I'm a pretty laid back 31-year old female graduate student, excited to experience life in downtown Richmond. I enjoy the occasional happy hour or dinner out, but I'm not a huge partier. In my free time, I like to be active outdoors or veg at home with a glass of wine and Netflix. I also have a cat, so hopefully you're cat friendly. He's a friendly little guy who enjoys being around people, but you can keep your door closed if you'd rather he not be in your room.
Who I'm looking for: A drug- and smoke-free graduate student or young professional who pays bills on time and will clean up after themselves. It would be great if we could be friendly and hang out when we're both home, or sometimes do dinner/drinks together, but it’s not a dealbreaker if you want to do your own thing. When you do go out, I just ask that you don't bring the party home and respect my need for a little quiet if I'm studying, and I'll of course do the same for you.
Shoot me an email at email@example.com if you're interested in the room, and we can set up a time to meet and see if we mesh. Hopefully by then I'll have some pictures of the place, and we can also get you over to see the apartment.
