Favorite Posts, Mentions, and Top Comments Week of 21April2013

Not much to report about our week here – it was pretty quiet!  Just lots of work.  We went to Kyle’s program’s end-of-year party and saw basically all our close friends from school.  I got my baby-holdin’ on, which was awesome.  We also had a small game night with some friends from our small group since we realized we hadn’t had them over since we moved to our townhouse.  Now that the weather has turned definitely-spring we want to be outside as much as possible!  Thankfully neither of us has allergies because the pollen is fierce right now and it will be getting hot soon enough.

Renee questioned the underlying premise of my post on how to price a room for rent – quite legitimately! “Haha, this makes for an interesting post, for sure… however, I think determining rent prices is neither a “systematic”, nor a “fair” process. It’s just business. If two people are looking for an apartment together, then I think they have to settle on how to split the price, perhaps systematically, once they find a place they like. But if someone already has a place and they’re looking to fill the room, then I believe the standard market practice is that they set the room prices based on what they believe will attract a good roommate (and perhaps have some friendly “negotiation” talk when the person comes to see the place and seems interested).”
