Want To Save Money In LA? Get A Roommate

Posted: Updated:
Los Angeles, CA -

(FOX 11) The rental experts at "Lovely" did the math on how much money renters can save by living with roommates.

And with rent prices increasing in the Southland as much as 15% in recent months, Lovely CEO & founder Blake Pierson told our investigative producer Heidi Cuda that Angelenos can save about 25% on a per bedroom basis by living with one roommate.

"I'm seeing more and more people across the board, all ages, young, old, being forced because of the economy and prices going up… to find roommates," says Pierson. "If we look at Beverly Hills, for most people it's unaffordable. But if you're willing to live with three roommates, you can save close to 45% per bedroom."

    A Rare Condition

    Hell on earth, that's how some doctors describe Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa also known as E.B. It's a horrible genetic disease that Nicky Zahorcak was born with. A lot of his skin is raw, the slightest touch can cause blisters that quickly spread. He says, "Right now, all the bandages that you see everywhere even on my sides, they're all raw skin." His mother Silvia says very few people know about this rare condition and she wants to change that.
