I am renting out a room in my home. The rent DOES NOT include utilities, which will be split. I will not consider paying all of the utilities because I have tried this and the utilities always more than double when I have someone living here, who is not responsible for utilities.
This is a large century home. I have a dog and he is old. This is his home. The picture of the front of the home was supplied by Silvernest and is not my home, it is the house next door which is a double, my home is a single family home.
I am looking for a quiet animal lover, (dogs) and respectful of others. The boarder will be responsible for half of the utilities. A background check is required and I will only rent to those with a clean background. I am just thinking of doing this now and have not given it too much thought yet. I know that I have run adds on craigslist in the past and will not do that again. I do not mind living by myself but this is a large home and it seems like the space is wasted.
I am a retired social worker in my 50s who is currently walking dogs and doing survey research from home, for a local university. I need the home to be quiet while I work.
