Benefit of Renting in London as a Housemate

The Secret to Finding The Perfect Place to Live In London

Living in one of the greatest cities in the world, it only figures that you want to get the most out of it. You want to be where it’s all happening, in an area that rocks and in a place that you can call home.

Without busting your budget and ruining your social life – the last thing you want to be doing is wasting your salary on monster-size monthly rentals, stuck indoors in your Islington studio.

Stuck indoors, because your too broke to: go to the theatre in Covent Garden, see a musical in Shaftesbury Avenue, comedy night in Camden, watch a live football match on home ground in one of the London’s 41 football clubs, grab a curry in Brick Lane, check out views from the Shard, coffee after visiting the latest exhibition at the Hayward Gallery or dancing till dawn on a Saturday night….the list is endless.

A Housing Shortage

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, told the BBC in July 2014 that “49,000 homes need to be built in the capital each year” others thinks it’s more at 63,000. So, finding quality + affordable, in the coolest parts of town is competitive. As competitive as applying for a job.

The Secret

Which is why, shared living is the way forward and people in the know are doing it already.

Why and How?

  • You’ll have more choice of flats and houses at a price that leaves you money left over.
  • You’ll be living in the hippest parts of town that you couldn’t afford on your own. Compare sharing with IdealRooms in Islington for a double room at £1,100 per month versus £2,925 per month for a one-bedroom flat.
  • Everything is on you doorstep: You can’t live anywhere in the 90km Central London radius at £1100; so you’ll have to keep your eye on train times and the night bus on a Saturday night.
  • The pros for sharing are many. So if you’re worried or have questions checkout this post.
