 Rego Park Apartment Rentals: Finding a Roommate During COVID-19

Finding a roommate that you mesh with is never an easy task for anyone living in Rego Park apartment rentals. Throw a worldwide pandemic into the mix, and it’s downright intimidating!

How can you get a good vibe from a potential roommate when we’re limiting face-to-face contact to stay healthy? Will your new roomie be on the same page as you regarding COVID-19 prevention? These questions weren’t on our radar until last year.

If you’re looking for someone to share your space (and the costs of living in your fabulous digs), pull up a chair. Here are our best tips for finding a roommate to share Rego Park apartment rentals in a “new normal” environment:

  • Conduct your first meeting virtually. Connect by FaceTime, Zoom or another virtual platform to make small talk, discuss deal-breaker behaviors and take your potential roommate on a tour of the apartment. If all goes well, plan an in-person meeting.
  • Find out their stance on COVID concerns during your virtual encounter. Before you invite a potential roommate to a face-to-face tour, discuss their views on mass gatherings, mask-wearing and inviting guests into the apartment. If their take on pandemic safety matches yours, it’s another positive sign that an in-person meeting is a “go.”
  • Talk about work. Rego Park apartment rentals can feel crowded quickly when they pull double-duty as a home office for you and your roommates! If your potential roommate is currently working from home, find out what their schedule looks like and if their work-from-home arrangement is permanent.

    If they aren’t working from home, do they perform a job that increases their exposure to COVID-19? If so, find out what steps they take to stay healthy.

  • Discuss cleaning habits. We all love a tidy roommate, and it’s even more important today! See if your candidate is open to creating a cleaning schedule and divvying up duties to keep things neat and sanitized.
