4 top cities to live with roommates
Shared accommodation are becoming more common among millennials than ever before. It is considered one of the most successful ways to live and save money.
4- New York City (USA)
New York City is probably one of the best places to co-live with roommates. The turnover of people coming and going is huge, so it is kind of easy to find roommates and a great place at a relatively affordable rate.
In New York City, the high cost of living forces many people who normally enjoy their ‘alone time’ to find a roommate. An affordable one-bedroom or an available studio apartment are often impossible to find.
The good news is that if you rent a room (or a couch) in your current place, you won’t be alone. 40% of adult renters in New York live with a roommate!
3- Berlin (Germany)
If you’re young or just new to the city, shared housing is a fact of life. In Germany that means WG-life (Wohngemeinschaft), which can be a strain. But communal living in Berlin also comes with great benefits.
As one of the most cosmopolitan cities in continental Europe, Berlin is a rich, diverse, and exciting city. There are many cozy and down-to-earth neighbourhoods, such as Fredrikschain or Kreuzberg, which are quite popular for people looking to share a living space with roomies.
2- London (UK)
London is vibrant and busy, and there’s always something going on.This means that most Londoners live a very fast-paced life, constantly rushing to fit in their next meeting or engagement.
As the main city in the United Kingdom, London has a lot to offer. Renting a decent spot in a good area on your own can be prohibitively expensive, so sharing with roommates is a great solution to make the most out of life in the UK capital.
1- Los Angeles (USA)
In Los Angeles, almost 50 percent of adults live with a roommate or adult parent, the highest share of all markets analyzed.
It is not astonishing! LA is where so many people move in order to succeed in their industry and live in one of the most exciting and ‘happening’ major metropolitan areas in the US and in the world. LA has many different neighbourhoods with something special to offer and plenty of opportunities for roommates and shared housing!
