Roommates.com and other rental services offer low, low rent
« on: April 23, 2004, 12:41:18 pm »

I don't know if anyone has had any trouble finding a low-priced place to live in NH.  However, if you have and you are single, don't worry about it.  Roommates.com has lots of rooms for rent in NH from $600 to $300 per month (and higher).  Some of the people even let you take your kids and for a few extra dollars they will likely let you take a spouse.  Of course, there is cheaper rent advertised in the local NH papers, but most of us don't live in NH so we will not be able to work out the details on that until after we get to NH.  

Some of the leases are Month to Month (perfect for people that are looking for a house), but they go as high as 12 months.  There is everything in between (3 months, 6 months).  Check out the website for yourself.  http://www.roommates.com/   It is not the only website of its kind, just the major one.  Feel free to google for others.

I found over 155 people with rooms to rent (some from rent now and others within a couple of months).  However, that number is constantly refreshed as those rooms get filled and more people put rooms on the market.

Some of these rooms include all utilities (heat, water, trash, and snow) but some only include a few utilities.  They are located all over NH.  Remember, in NH property taxes are the major taxes that people pay directly.  If you rent a room that means no sales tax, no income tax, and NO PROPERTY TAX.  

Also, if you have a place (or are about it get one) and you find that with the above average cost of housing, the utilities, and the property tax that you are paying too much for your place, do not fear.  Roommates.com also lists 6,262 people in NH that want to pay you for the privilege of living with you.

I just saw a new listing on Roommates.com  It is in Nashua and only $200 per month.  It includes all utilities, taxes, and is even furnished.  They even allow month to month rent.  Image, you can live in freedom for just $200 total per month.

There is another listing in a different town for $225 per month (all utilities included).

RoommateLocator.com is another roommate site.  It list 17 rooms for rent in NH,  They start at $390 per month (a month to month place in Portsmouth).

The service also lists 9 people in need of a room.  One person is willing to pay up to $1,000 per month.  This is a good chance for FSP members that have already moved to NH to make extra money to give to the FSP (or some other pro-freedom NH group).

There is a new www.roommates.com listing that is one of the best on the internet.  You can live in the wealthest town in NH (and where the jobs are the easiest to find and pay the highest) for $300 per month.

"
Rent: $ 300 per month  
Lease: 12 month  
Date available: 06/15/04 (20 days)
Utilities included: Electricity, Gas, Water, Trash pickup
Features: Private bedroom
"

It even says that kids and pets are OK.  This is the best deal I've even seen on roommates.com.  You get to live in a town where the average adult makes a killing but get to pay no property, income, or sales tax and only $300 total or everything.  Hanover is the type of town that you don't even need a car to live in so that takes care of car payments and insurance.
