For many people renting somewhere to live is the only option, particularly if they are taking a job in a new city or town and don’t know how it will go so we thought we’d put together a review of one of the best flatmate and house share websites available, called Spareroom.co.uk we’ve taken a bit of time to look at the site and also checked out feedback from users.
About The Website
Spareroom has been specifically designed to put renters in touch with each other, the one thing you notice about the site is that it is about people rather than places which we liked. Users can either advertise a room or post a room request by simply registering on the site. The profiles for each let you set preferences such as pets etc as well as tell accommodation hunters what the costs are.
Searching the website is really easy and you can do it without registering (which is free anyway!!), just put in what you are looking for and where and hey presto the right sort of places come up.
The added advantage to using the site rather than just going to a traditional letting agency is that it gives you a chance to check out your potential housemates.
What We Thought
We liked the spareroom.co.uk website as it was very easy to use and has thousands (if not millions of users) so the choice is endless. The searches are pretty easy to use and the amount of information you can access is spot on which means no more endless wandering from rental agent to rental agent. We’ve made the website one of top rated and it’s the first for 2011 !!!
If you are looking for a new place to live and want to hook up with people who share your ideals take a look at spareroom.co.uk.
