Female grad student looking for roommate (Carrboro, 2 bed/1 bath) and/or subletter

I have a property and need a roommate.


I'm a 25-year-old third-year PhD student at UNC and looking for a female roommate without pets for my apartment for the next academic year (least starts July 1, but flexible move-in dates anytime between June 1 and August 1). I was recently accepted at a study abroad program for the next academic year after I had already renewed my lease, so I'm also looking for a subletter for my room starting in August/September, who will most likely be a female international exchange student in need of a furnished room, so you wouldn't actually be living with me (though you would get the benefit of the my common room furniture- kitchen table, comfy couch- and kitchen appliances). The apartment is located on a quiet cul de sac half a mile north of the Harris Teeter and CVS off of Greensboro St. in Carrboro, and within walking/biking distance of the numerous cafes and shops downtown. There are hardwood floors in the living room/dining area, as well as a washer and dryer in the bathroom. There's a screened in back porch, a compost bin, and a small fire pit in the backyard. It's a 10-15 minute walk to downtown Carrboro, and the F-line stops within sight of the apartment and goes straight to downtown Chapel Hill and the north side of campus. Many of the neighbors are also graduate students and young professionals in departments from history to psychology to the medical school. The rent is $1200/month in total ($600/person + utilities, which have never been more than $70/person). The apartment is rented through a small company, and the landlady is quick to respond to any maintenance issues that might arise since she has fewer properties to manage. I'm in town this summer, so if you're in the neighborhood, you can check it out in person, or if you're moving to North Carolina, I can give send you some photos (warning: I am not a professional photographer who knows how to capture an entire room in a photo) and give you a virtual tour via Skype! Thanks! Maggie
