Your profile is a great way for others to learn more about you before they message you. When your profile is detailed, it helps others know that you're reliable and authentic—whether you're looking for a roommate or have a spare room for rent.

The more complete your profile is, the more views and messages you are likely to receive. It's required that at least one profile photo is of you. No buildings, animals, objects, landscapes, or anything else that isn't you.

We also encourage our users to reach out to others and introduce themselves.


Messaging other users:

When you see a listing you like you can send the user a message to let them know you are interested. The best messages include a little intro about yourself and tell what type of roommate you are.


Here's how you message other users:


Web

  • Click the listing that you're interested in
  • Click Message under the user's profile photo


iOS and Android

  • Tap the listing that you're interested in
  • Tap Message


Make sure to turn on your notifications so you can reply right away when they get back to you!


Browsing roommates and finding a match:

The Browse Roommates feature helps you view people that are searching for a room or have an empty room available.

If you're on a free plan, you have a limited amount of roommate connections you can make in a day. For unlimited connections with roommates or tenants, upgrade your account. (Pssst... upgrading comes with a ton of other perks.)
