Q. What does
the term “By the Bed” Leasing mean and what is the benefit of this

Individual leases allow the rent to be split making each resident

questionnaire. We use a system called Roommate Matching to

A. Absolutely. During the application, if the applicant
has others they would like to be roommates with, they can invite
them to apply and they will be associated with you. If you

websites that provide this service: Roomster, Roomie Match, and
Roommates.com are just a few of the sites.
