Learn Each Other’s Schedules

There’s nothing worse than being woken up by a roommate’s guests shortly after you’ve gone to bed. Unless you’ve communicated your work schedule and nightly routine to your roommate, they may not be aware that you’re not able to sleep with the television’s volume turned up past a certain level. We mentioned that every household should have a shared calendar in our previous post, and this area provides you and your roommate with the opportunity to let each other know what your week looks like. Taking a small amount of time to note that your parents will be coming to visit or that you’ll be out of town for the weekend will help you and your roommate know what to expect in the coming days and weeks.

Fairly Divide The Chores

If you’ve ever lived with someone else, then you’ve surely experienced the frustration of living with someone who doesn’t pull their own weight in the apartment. Whether it’s forgetting that you do, in fact, own a vacuum cleaner or leaving a week’s worth of dishes in your sink, there are endless ways in which you and your roommate can slowly drive each other to the brink of insanity. Make a list of everything that needs to be done around your rental property, ideally before you’ve moved in. There’s no right or wrong way to divide up chores — the most important thing is to find an arrangement that you and your roommate can stick to.

Be Mindful Of Guests

Your rental property is the place you call home, and you might find yourself becoming frustrated if you frequently walk into a living room full of unexpected guests. Alternatively, you might be an extrovert who’s always up for a conversation, but the only thing your roommate might be interested in is peace and quiet after a long day at the office. Clearly communicating when you’re having guests over will prevent any resentment from developing in your household, so send a quick text message or let your roommate know that you’re hosting a party over as soon as you make plans.

We hope that these tips will help you make the most of your living situation.
