I've been trying to decide on living alone vs. with a roommate or two. Any thoughts on this?
The financial savings you may make by sharing an apartment vary from place-to-place around Nashville. The Grove, for instance, goes from a 1 bed 1 bath at $1,050 per month plus utilities ($60-120 per month according to a rep) to 2,075 for a 3 bed 2 bath plus utilities. That's a pretty significant savings per person. The metropolitan, on the other hand, shoots from $945 for a 1 bed 1 bath to 1,575 for a 2 bed 2 bath. You just have to decide how much the privacy and quiet of being able to escape to your own place is worth to you. Or for some, like myself, having some other people around so you don't crazy is just an added bonus. My undergrad is about 40 minutes from Nashville, so I've been looking around for deals, and one thing I would recommend for people going for roommates is to check out craigslist for townhomes and condos that go up for rent as summer comes - this is where the best deals will be.
