Erik J. Martin did an article about what experts recommend when they give advice about how to find the right roommate.

How to find the right roommate

. . . “ask questions about compatibility, tidiness, noise, personal belongings, overnight visitors allowed, and what will happen if the rent is not paid,” says Josh Rosenthal, owner of MoveIn.Space, a Washington, D.C.-based company that helps renters prepare to move and manage walk-through inspections, who also recommends asking for and contacting references they provide.

Time Saving Tools


MoveIn.Space/walkthrough is a walkthrough management tool that is free and simple to use. It increases agreement between landlords and tenants by proving “it was like that at move-in”.
Set-up is easy.

  1. Go to MoveIn.Space/walkthrough on your cell phone or tablet
  2. Enter your house, housemates, and/or the landlord
  3. Take pictures and add descriptions, model numbers, tags, etc.
  4. Submit and everyone gets access to a copy of the report on the cloud, and a reminder later to do a move-out inspection

Paper checklists lack detail and are difficult to keep track of.
Pictures lack detail and are tough to timestamp.
Both are one-sided.

MoveIn.Space/walkthrough makes consistency, detail, and context equally accessible to everyone.
