Overview

With the rising cost of living in many major cities and the rise in displaced folks who need to share rent (divorced people, students, and those who need temporary living arrangements) you could make a fine living playing matchmaker for live-ins. Ideally, you would have a method for screening each of the candidates (police checks at the very least) and a method for securing your payment ahead of time (credit card processing equipment would be helpful). Advertise in places where people generally look for a place to live, and you’ll have found your special niche. Develop a good questionnaire that asks the kinds of questions a potential roommate would want answered. To double your income potential, you could add on other services such as mediation between rumblin’ roomies or budget development assistance. The best advice is to focus on one area first, then branch out your services as you move successfully along.
