Roommates and Room for Rent

Roommate Needed

Added:  June 11, 2018

I am in a bit of a bind looking for a roommate last minute (the I had roommate lined up is no longer moving to Iowa). I have an available room in a duplex occupying the upstairs of the house in Old Historic district (11th street and Grand Ave). Location is walking distance to the downtown/main street/farmer's market and 6-7 minute drive to ISU. Next to bus stop. Space is 2 bedroom, 1 full bath + a sunroom. The available bedroom is approximately 13' 6" by 8' 2". My current roommate who is moving out occupies the sunroom (approx. 11'2" by 7'6") instead since he likes the light it offers; but either arrangement is fine. The living and dinning areas are quite large with lots of extra space. Kitchen has lots of cupboard space. All flooring is hardwood and tile. 

The downstairs neighbor is a quiet, nice, older man who takes out the trash, mows the lawn, cares for the yard, and shovels the snow, etc. 

Laundry is free and located in the basement - the machines are separate from the downstairs neighbor. There is an unfenced yard with a large lawn and a potential for a garden if you are interested. Basement also has room for some storage.

The house is pet friendly with no pet rent. I have a dog (Chihuahua/pug) and cat. They both get along with others. However, there is a limit of 1 additional pet and needs to be approved by the landlord first. 

I am an ophthalmology resident so I mainly study/work, sometimes cook, and sleep when at home. I work long hours. I try to harvest an environment of sharing my things and being respectful of my roommate's things. Overall the house is quiet; no noisy neighbors. 

Male or female roommate is OK.

Rent is $340, utilities (gas, electric, water, internet) not included (expect $80-$130 for utilities depending on season). Trash is included in rent. All other shared expenses split evenly such as paper towels, trash bags, etc.

Roommate for 2018-2019 School Year

Added: March 6, 2018

Looking to fill a bedroom in a 3 bedroom 2 bath apartment. You would get your own bathroom. Rent is $425/ mo plus water and electric averaging ~$40 a month. Cable and internet are provided. Ethernet ports are in all of the rooms. We have it almost completely furnished so all you would need is stuff for your room and bathroom. The apartment is located in West Ames by Perfect Games (10 minute drive to Vet Med). No permit required for parking. Plus free gym membership to Ames Raquet and Fitness. My other roommate does have a cat and they only allow 1 animal per unit so no more pets would be able to come except pocket pets/reptiles. Preferably a male roommate, but we currently have a 3rd female roommate. If interested I can send pictures of the apartment via email.

Contact Tyler Hawbecker if interested.
