Travel a lot but still need a bedroom to call home?

If you travel a lot but still need a bedroom to stay in while you are in town? If you answered YES, this is the perfect fit!!

I own and reside in a TWO -BEDROOM/ONE- BATHROOM Condo in [location]. The complex is called [NAME OF COMPLEX] and is located off the cross streets of [location]. There is easy access to TWO METRO STOPS ([two metro stop names]) via bus stop on property. Less than a mile from [location] and walking distance to Shopping Center.

I am looking for a roommate that won’t be around much but still needs a place to call “home” every so often. The room is fully furnished with a full bed, night stand ,dresser, and TV. There is a 2 door closet inside the room also. I have a cat so you cannot be allergic to cats. I like my own space and am used to living alone but the mortgage has gotten to be too much. I’m looking for someone who travels a lot or maybe “lives at their boyfriends” house but mom and dad still think you have your “own” place… I think you get the picture. Utilities include Cable, Wireless Internet, Gas, Electric, Water/Sewer and Trash and would be an additional $50.00 per month. The rent that I am asking is $600 per month although willing to negotiate a tiny bit if you are the right fit.

Please email me through craigslist with your contact information and why you are a good fit for my 1 bedroom rental.
