A new RentHop analysis shows that renters in DC who opt to have a roommate rather than rent a one-bedroom save $575 a month.
"Currently, the median two-bedroom rents for $2,850/month, while the median one-bedroom rent is $2,000," RentHop found. "This means renters with roommates would each pay $1,425 a month in rent."
In general, the more expensive housing is in a metro area, the more one saves by having a roommate. In pricier markets like New York, renters can save approximately $1,300 a month with a roommate.
The median one-bedroom and two-bedroom rents for this study were calculated based on RentHop listings created between August 2022 and January 2023. Only unfurnished units were included in the analysis.
