Apartment living comes with a bevy of benefits – no maintenance worries, on-site amenities like fitness center, pool, and clubhouse – and it’s cost-effective, especially if you have a roommate.
Having a roommate can be a fun experience, but there’s a lot of compromise involved. Here’s how you can find a good middle ground with your roommate.
1. Choose a Location That's Convenient for Both of You.
Nothing puts a damper on the workday quite like a lengthy commute in bad traffic, so it's worth it to live in a location that allows both you and your roommate to enjoy a reasonable drive-time to work.
Many of our residents at 7 Pointe Apartments love that we’re centrally located between downtown Indianapolis and the Interstate 465 northern loop. With a convenient 7-mile drive to Monument Circle and a quick 6-mile jaunt to Castleton, residents can travel north or south easily.
2. Be Mindful of Different Schedules, Sleep Styles, and Preferences.
Good roommates are able to compromise and communicate. Be sure to talk to your roommate about what you both need to feel comfortable when it comes to sharing chores, being quiet while the other person is sleeping, your guest policy, and other matters. Don’t be afraid to set expectations and boundaries.
3. Enjoy Time Together – And Apart.
Building a healthy bond with your roommate can mean spending time together and doing activities you both enjoy as well as giving each other the space you need to be comfortable and productive.
While sharing time and activities together establishes rapport, everyone needs alone time once in a while.
