Lincoln Square, Chicago

Unfurnished room in an Apartment

My roommate is moving downtown at the end of January, so I'm looking for someone to take over his half of the lease. Total rent is $1425, so your half would be $712.50, plus electric and internet. The apartment is really nice. It's located near Lawrence/Western, a few blocks from the Rockwell Brown line stop. It's got lots of exposed brick, free easy street parking, really nice neighborhood with tons to do. Dog friendly, with a couple dog parks located nearby. I'm a pretty laid back guy. I work full time nearby and keep mostly to myself while I'm home. I'm really just looking for a normal person I can trust not to murder me or anybody else, and pay bills on time. The current lease ends at the end of August 2019, but I'm flexible with renewing the lease if you want. Please let me know if you're interested

Edgewater, Chicago

Furnished room in an Apartment

Large furnished bedroom with brand new queen size Casper bed, modern decor, giant walk-in closet and writing desk. The apartment is located on the top of a 3rd floor walk-up, so you'll never hear footsteps above you and there are beautifully high ceilings (in the living room the ceiling is vaulted). All the conveniences you could want are IN-UNIT: washer and dryer, dishwasher, microwave and cooking tools/appliances. The kitchen has 2 stools for you to sit and have a quick meal. The bathroom is spacious and clean as is the unit on whole. It's a great layout for sharing because the bedrooms don't share walls. Central heat and A/C, WiFi , Internet TV (Amazon Fire stick and Apple TV) is included. About the apartment dwellers: One professional woman who works Monday - Friday (2 days at home) 8 am - 5:30 pm. One 5-year-old dog who works from home 7 days of the week, typically sleeping (she's kind of a slacker). The two enjoy socializing but mostly enjoy quiet time at home with a movie, or book with a glass of wine. About you: Perhaps you need a place to stay while you scope out a permanent home in Chicago. Maybe you're in town for a short duration and don't want to move all your things. You pick up after yourself and you like dogs.

I am a very helpful person if you ask. I don't mind going out on occasion but I do not bring the party with me, and I except the same. Other than that I love watching Harry Potter Movies, Gossip Girl, Rupaul Drag Race and pretty much on Netflix. I love listening to Jazz/Smooth Jazz Music from time to time and reading books.
