My roommate wants me to move out ASAP. My roommate might actually have developed some kind of bipolar disorder. Nothing dangerous, just erratic, unpredictable and strange behavior in intervals. Since I have to move out now (again, my roommate might chance her mind about this quickly) I need a place to stay. I don't want to commit long term since I might leave the city or even the US because of a job change.
On Craigslist I see rooms for rent by agencies with titles like:
"$125 Rent starting at: $125/ Weekly or $500/ Monthly"
The room are very convenient located for my current job but they charge a US$ 150 "showing fee", no matter if you take the room or not. This sounds strange to me. Ham or Scam?
Did anyone ever try these room agencies?
