Still Roommate Hunting

We're going into another week without a replacement roommate. I'm not worried too much yet since the previous roommate paid until the 6th of August (and her stuff is still in the room, even though it was to be picked up this past weekend). Normally at $350/month, we would have received 5+ different people contacting us in a week. We had three this week:
  1. One told us he was seriously interested, since his 2 jobs are about 10 minutes away from our place and his current living situation wasn't working out. He rescheduled our first meeting and then no-show-no-call for the second meeting. I sent him one e-mail letting him know it was available and that it would be our last e-mail.
  2. Received another one by phone, called them, left voice mail, no call back.
  3. Received one last one by phone, had called about 6 months ago regarding the room but the problem being is that she has a dog. With 6 people in the house, the last thing we need is a dog. I informed her we still were not willing to take a dog in.
The lack of response may put a kink into our budget a bit (will post it up tomorrow), but it may mean I will need to start tutoring sooner (was planning on September). We'll see what this week brings.
