Free rent in San Francisco? That's something you don't hear everyday. Sounds crazy, but room.me is making it a possibility for one lucky California resident.
Finding the perfect roommate is one of life's trickiest challenges, and room.me, a San Francisco born app and website tool, helps solve that problem. Using matching algorithms like those found in dating sites—think OkCupid for roomies—room.me makes finding a roommate and listing open rooms simple (and free).
With a focus on compatibility, room.me has its eyes set on turning a once tedious task into an exhilarating first step into lasting camaraderie—you know, where roomies actually like each other, watch Netflix together, and share the milk. Having spent the last year conducting a series of studies and focus groups, room.me has boiled down the most important questions for those seeking roommates, using them to lay their foundation. "Okay with overnight guests" and "lover of pets" are just some of the specific matching criteria.
With November elections just around the corner, room.me is using the hashtag #FreeRentSF to get people involved and talking about the San Francisco housing situation through pictures, tweets, and posts, in hope of bringing awareness and solutions to the surface. With the city's housing crisis in mind, room.me is firm on the belief that people, not prices, should dictate how you live.
As an added bonus, anyone who joins room.me between today and October 30th is automatically entered to win a free month of rent! Fans can increase their chances by liking room.me on Twitter or FB, or posting an open room to the site. What would you do with a whole month's worth of rent? The possibilities are endless.
No more holding your breath and wondering if your Craigslist roommate is sane or not. room.me is here to get you matched with someone you'll actually like.
Join room.me today for your chance to win a free month of rent.
