For Jhoanna Robledo’s story: “Splitting the Rent, Fair and Square: Appraiser Jonathan Miller calculates how to divvy up the bill based on a typical two-bedroom, $3,200-a-month apartment.” in this week’s real estate feature piece in New York Magazine The Art of Roommating, I attempt to give some logic on how to fairly allocate the rent to 2 people sharing a 2-bedroom, 2-bath Brooklyn apartment.
Gotta love the first comment made on the web site:
…or if you’re friends you could split it evenly. just saying.

Is it legal for two people that aren’t family to share a home? I know here you can only have a one family in a home. Two unrelated persons would be considered two families which would be illegal here.
This makes sense. Appraisers sometimes say that we emulate market behavior, but in this case the market participants would probably have to grasp at a solution. An expert can hold the factual situation up to the light, turn it around to see it in three dimensions, and then provide a reasonable analysis.
Haha yes evenly indeed.
