Default Venting - Housing

I just need to vent for a min... I have a spare room and I've had the ad on craigslist, facebook, and some roommate site that's supposed to be really good. I'm frustrated that I haven't gotten any bites on it... I've been proactive and actually contacting A LOT of people who have "room wanted" ads and what really pisses me off more than anything is these people ignore it. In some cases I'm pleading my case to them that my room might be worth looking at even though one or two parameters doesn't match what they're looking for. In other cases my room fits EXACTLY what they're looking for and in a couple my asking price for rent has been CHEAPER than what they listed. Of all the emails I've sent (probably close to 12-18) and all ads I've posted (probably 7 or so since people like to re-post on CL) I've gotten 3 responses... on person responded to my ad and ignored my timely response email... another person politely declined after my room isn't what she's looking for... and I have one person coming to look this weekend even though technically it's more than she wants to pay. I get that budgets are thin but I didn't think it'd be this tough... people looking for cheaper places to live possibly? More importantly, how much does it cost to send a "No Thanks" email to someone who responded to your housing wanted ad??

Anyone have ANY ideas how to make this go a little quicker?? Thanks!

The funny thing is I don't really care! I already have 1 male roommate so my ad mentions nothing as far as preference goes... eh... lol

Truth: People suck, and have no concept of courtesy any more. And that's probably why I only have 2-3 really dependable friends. B/c I can't rely on anybody anymore.

OMG... these people have rediculous expectations.

"Need a place to stay. Will pay rent by doing yard work" do you know how big my yard would be to make it worth it to let you live there without paying a dime?!

I can't believe how many people want a room (sometimes their own bathroom too) in Seattle for $500 per month w/ utilities included... some of these also want the room FURNISHED!!

Also, when did we stop requiring deposits?! NO ONE wants to pay a freakin' deposit!!! haha WTF?!

Also... enjoy this.....

Hi, I'm looking for a place where I can rent a room out every once in awhile for me and my girlfriend and would like to pay by the day at times in can be anywhere between 2 days and 1 week and again would like to pay daily, my cell number is 206-333-#### or jeffb60@------.com, thank you, Jeff
Of course anyone older than 13 knows exactly what he means by that..... but someone responded and it's hilarious...

Quote:
Dude get a freaking clue. You repost this same ad every freaking day. Are you a retard? Do you have your helmet on? Do you still lick the windows on the short bus you ride? Stop posting this stupid crap. No one is going to let you rent a room for a night so you can get laid. Just go get a freaking motel room or screw her in the woods somewhere. I don't know who is dumber, you for posting this crap or her for letting you. Better yet, why don't you send her to my house and I will take care of her while you run around in circles outside and chase butterflies. You're a ******* so go away.
