I'm a 38-year old gay professor new to Bloomington moving into a rental house in Prospect Hill the weekend of August 15. I'd like to find a housemate to share the 3-bedroom, 2 bathroom house. It's a lovely place in a great neighborhood close to campus and to downtown. There is laundry and a dishwasher in the house, a lovely big backyard. I'm looking for one roommate to split costs. Half the rent is $575 plus you'd be responsible for half the cable/internet, electric, gas, water, and garbage. I can give you estimates if you're interested. I'd love a month's deposit and a month's notice before going. I'll refund that to you when you go. I can show the house as early as Sunday in the early evening. I'm an easygoing and friendly person to live with hoping to find a friendly, clean roommate. The lease doesn't allow for pets. I'm happy to answer your questions if you have them.
