Subletting

May 18, 2011

Why am I subletting my room for the summer? I don’t have wealthy parents and I’m broke. It sounds bleak, but finding a subletter has been interesting. It’s like online/speed dating. I receive email inquires with a short description of themselves and what they’re looking for, and I email back those I’m interested in. I send photos of my room and a little about myself. Then I make appointments (dates) to show them around Stuytown and my apartment. I walk them out, and hope they’re interested. Some instantly want the apartment, others need to think about it, check out other options. I’ve been fun, a bit stressful, but a good stress. At least people are interested. With 5 more appointments on Friday, the following people seem interested:

  • Female NYU Business Major who doesn’t know what a personal reference is. Ditsy. You’re not getting the apartment.
  • Female BU 2L interested in public interest. Kind, one of the front runners.
  • Male Yale 2nd year Med student. Dorky, but looks responsible. Showed him the place via Skype. Also a front runner.
  • Female HBS graduate, Mckinsey, late move in. Volunteering with nonprofit. Currently in 1st place.
Up ahead are a few law students, finance people, and a start up founder. Hopefully no crazies.
