News__ Splitting the Rent

March 03, 2011 | By

A pie chart to show how people usually decide to split the rent. Will soon include SplitTheRent.org.

Jonathan Bittner from SplitTheRent.org is about to start and end a lot of roommate fights. He has devised an algorithm to help square the age old debate of how much each person should be paying when sharing an apartment. "The basic idea of using price per square foot is a well-known concept, and I thought this would make it easier to calculate and talk about," Bittner says on his site. "The exact way the little factors (windows, doors, closets) are taken into account is based on a very detailed survey of my friends." If you have the smaller room, you might want to start forwarding this to your roomies. Living large, maybe keep it to yourself.
