Further proof that the Mission needs an abortion: this Craigslist ad seeks a roommate to pay a whopping $1,000 for an 80-square-foot room inside an apartment with four other "grown-ass men" working in tech. It's also got a "solid kitchen" and a "pretty sweet view."
$1000 / 80ft² - Sweet spot at 16th and Mission! (mission district)
Hey new roommate (well, probably not, but for one of you, this is true),
My roommates and I have a room available to rent at 16th and Dolores. We are looking for someone to move in as soon as possible - our current roommate just snagged a really awesome place right near by and is looking to move soon.
About us: We are 4 grown-ass men, 26-29, with jobs mainly in tech. We are good friends with active social lives. Sometimes we have friends over on the weekends. We go to Burning Man together. We have lots of bicycles. Life is fun. We are generally easy going. We spend a few nights a week around the apartment, the rest of them out and about (together or separately).
About the apartment: As you may have inferred, it is a 5-bedroom apartment. We have a solid kitchen, a nice-sized living room and 2.5 baths. We live on the 3rd floor and have roof access (which we occasionally use...pretty sweet view). Our neighbors are totally cool to live with - no issues.
About the room: The room is about 8x10 with a closet and a lofted bed (i.e. there is an underbed area and above that a structure such that the bed is about 4.5 feet above the floor). There is a decent-enough sized closet and some closet space in the hallway which you can use, as well. It's pretty sweet, as long as you don't need a really big space.
Rent is $1,000 a month and you will need to give us a 1-month security deposit to replace the outgoing roomie. We are flexible on how long you will want to live here from anywhere around 3 months up to 1 year.
Please send us a brief description of yourself and a note about why you think you would get along well with us. Also, please put "HEY DUDES" in your subject line so that we know you read the full post.
No sketchballs, no assholes, no neat freaks, no pets (though we are all animal lovers).
It's a master lease holder's world. We're just living in it.
