Woman Tries To Share Her Apartment By Renting A Tent On Her Balcony
Apartments can be expensive, and some people have roommates to split the costs. But one woman wants someone to share expenses with without sharing her indoor space.
The woman, known only as Sandra, lives in Zurich, Switzerland, and says her apartment is so expensive that she decided to try renting out her balcony for about $535 per month.
The 27-year-old says she:
“would like to live with someone else and reduce my rent a bit. That’s why I came up with the idea of a tent. In this city, the situation for those looking for a flat is very difficult. Finding an affordable room to rent is almost impossible.”
She says she’s already gotten interest about her tent, mostly from students, though she did add,
“I realize it might be a bit difficult to find a tenant in the middle of winter. Especially since the balcony is not covered. If someone doesn’t want to move in until spring, that’s fine with me too.”
