I had never heard of Roomi but when I saw an add on Instagram I decided to download the app and give it a try. I am very impressed with the app and will refer my friends in the future to use it! I found a great roommate, she is moving in on this week! :)

I moved to Boston right after graduating college and didn't know anyone in the city to room with. I found a great apartment with ease moved in within a week. When a room opened up in our apartment, we used the app to list the room. It is super easy to chat with people and arrange apartment viewings through the messenger. This app is way more efficient than online search engines and other sources.

I was having a hard time finding a roommate in a pinch after the one I had set up bailed last minute. Craigslist gave me scammers and other apps I tried gave me leads but nothing more. Roomi gave me a new roommate in a few weeks versus the two months I had had without success. My Roomi has been here a month and it's working out well!

We found an awesome new housemate through roomi!!!! It was so easy to use and a really great app! I would say, I didn't get push notifications for every message that came through, so might be something to look into in the future! Thanks for everything!

I recently moved to New York from Boston, and I knew almost no one in the city; everyone I *did* know already had housing, so I was anxious about being able to find a place from afar! I looked at craigslist first, but saw enough creepy looking ads that I quickly ditched that idea. When I signed up for Roomi, I found a bunch of options that fit my size/budget constraints almost immediately. I ended up Skype-chatting with my current roommate, and she gave me a virtual tour of the place while we bonded over shared interested (omg Star Wars). I've been...

I loved my experience with Roomi. I moved for work and needed someone to take over the rest of my year long lease ASAP. Not only did I received more responses on Roomi than any other website I posted on, but the responses I received were from awesome girls!! Roomi felt safer than Craigslist and definitely more effective.

I have already recommended Roomi to friends. I was able to explore several different places within my price range and met some great people. I was looking for a room at a good price point closer to a new job I had taken, which was quite a commute from where I was originally. I was able to secure a place and move in in a matter of weeks- no security deposit or credit check needed. This was fast and easy, the app is super user friendly- I definitely recommend.

I've used a lot of other sites to find a roommate and Roomi made it a very easy process compared to the others. I was able to find someone who was similar to myself and had the same schedule/lifestyle. I got very lucky with my roommate find, and I credit Roomi for that!

I love the customer service provided. They are super helpful and reliable. The fact that I can see who I am looking talking to when looking for a roommate is awesome compared to other sites or apps. And the process is super simple and no complaints on this end. I found the perfect roommate and he is awesome. Thanks Roomi!

Kate ended up finding me on Roomi and she is perfect. Though I would have preferred to finish the search sooner by being proactive and contacting candidates myself, I did end up with an awesome roommate, so I am happy.

I was in a bind; I needed to find a new roommate unexpectedly in just under two weeks. Put my room up on Roomi and I found multiple cool peeps interested in my apartment fast. Best of all, they had profiles I could easily vet before showing the room, so I could filter out people I knew wouldn't work. Couldn't be happier with my new roommate and Roomi's customer service. Never felt like a number.

Roomi felt a little more personal and less awkward than other sites. I also appreciated being able to chat with people within Roomi. It took some patience and time, but I'm happy to report that I have a roommate moving in in about a month, and I think she'll be a great fit.

We needed someone to fit our vibe most perfectly, and we found them! I've had some horrible housemate experiences, and even worse experiences looking for one, but this was great. I will be using Roomi again.

A simple google search landed me onto Roomi. Within the first week I had at least 5 messages in my inbox, and my PERFECT new roommate was 1 of them. We met up and realized that us stumbling upon each other was absolute fate! I would recommend Roomi to any and everyone needing to find a roommate!

How to get the most out of Roomi
We're thrilled to help you make the most out of your experience. Here are a few friendly tips to get the most out of Roomi:

Tip 1: Complete your profile

A complete and detailed profile is key to attracting the right roommate. Make sure that you’ve uploaded a recent profile photo of yourself, finish your profile details, update your target date, budget and preferred neighborhoods.


Tip 2: Start a conversation

When you come across a room listing that catches your eye, don't hesitate to spark a conversation. Sending a friendly message shows your interest and gives you an opportunity to learn more about the room, the neighborhood, and the potential roommate. It's a great way to break the ice and start building a connection.


Tip 3: Be proactive

Take an active role in your search. Regularly browse the Roomi listings to find new opportunities, reply back when someone messages, and don't be afraid to reach out to potential roommates or post your own room listing if you have a place to offer. Being proactive increases your chances of finding the perfect living arrangement.


Tip 4: Utilize filters and preferences

Roomi offers various filters and preferences to help you narrow down your search. Set your preferred neighborhood, target date, budget, and other criteria to see listings that align with your needs. The more specific you are, the more likely you'll find the ideal roommate and living situation.


Tip 5: Trust your instincts

When interacting with potential roommates, it's important to trust your instincts. If something feels off or you have any doubts, don't hesitate to ask questions or request additional information. Your comfort and safety should always be a top priority.


Tip 6: Meet in person or do a video call

Once you've connected with a potential roommate online, consider arranging a meeting in person or on a video call. Meeting allows you to gauge compatibility, get a feel for their personality, and discuss important details. Remember to prioritize safety and meet in a public place initially.


Tip 7: Communicate openly

Communication is key in any roommate relationship. Be open and honest about your expectations, boundaries, and any concerns you may have. This sets a solid foundation for a positive and harmonious living experience.

Here are a few reasons why you should consider getting verified:
More Responses:
Verified profiles on Roomi get 4x more responses compared to non-verified ones. By getting verified, you increase your visibility and attract more potential connections or renters, accelerating your journey towards finding the right match.


Priority Search Ranking:

When it comes to search results, verified profiles or listings often get a higher priority. This means that, all other factors being equal, your verified profile will be given preference over non-verified ones. By having that verification badge, you increase your chances of appearing at the top of relevant search results, making it easier for others to find and consider your profile or listing.


Avoid Wasting Time:

Verification helps you cut through the noise and avoid interactions with non-serious browsers. By displaying the verification badge, you establish trust and credibility, indicating that you have taken the necessary steps to confirm your identity. This reassures potential connections or renters that you are genuine and serious about your intentions. As a result, you can save time by focusing on meaningful connections and avoid wasting effort on individuals who may not be as committed.


Increased Visibility:

Overall, getting verified provides tangible benefits that can significantly enhance your experience on platforms like Roomi. It increases your visibility, improves search rankings, and helps you establish trust, allowing you to make more genuine connections and find the right match more efficiently.
