Sharing Saves Money in Cambridge!

Looking to rent in Cambridge?

Unsure if a shared property is right for you?

Then please read on as you may gain some valuable information.

When thinking about the type of property you would like to rent, remember to consider the following points:

Costs:

When you rent a property on your own you will need to budget for your rent and utility bills when working out if you can afford the move.

A typical 1-bedroom apartment in Cambridge is currently renting for around £750pcm*

A typical shared house with 4 bedrooms in Cambridge is currently renting for around £1350pcm* (£337 per person per month)

So sharing a larger house with 3 other people could save you £413 per person month!

Type of Property:

The type of property you can afford to rent increases in size and quality when you look for shared accommodation.

To pay the same amount of rent you would in a shared house for your own apartment you would end up with a smaller property maybe in a more remote location.

Social Life:

Do you know anyone in the area you are moving to?

By moving into our own property you are reducing the places you can meet new people.

By choosing a shared property you will get to meet new like-minded people in your local area, many of whom will be new to the area themselves and looking to meet new people.
