So we're gonna have someone stay in our spare room for a few months. It's a friend, and we really aren't sure how much we should charge him.

He'll have his own bedroom, bed is already here, his own bathroom, a TV and DVD player, internet access, etc. It's really just a place for him to sleep and shower because he'll most likely be working most of the time.

So what do you guys think would be a reasonable price?

his own room and bathroom, net access, cable, tv, dvd etc...
I'd say 250 is more than reasonable.... you could probably charge more

I think it really depends on how much your own total rent and bills are....
plus the reasoning behind it...is the friend moving in because they need help gettin back on their feet? are they moving in to help you catch up?
You need to find the balance.

You dont wanna price gouge your friend.
But you dont want to inconvenience yourselves.

$250 or $300? I wouldn't even pay that! that's what you'd pay for your OWN house and space. I am trying to get a house and even then im only paying $140 a week.

I'd suggest $100-$150. You could charge more but ask him first what exactly he will be using.

I also was going to say $300...it seems more then fair to me.

Maybe I'd go $250 if it was for a very close friend...depending on what their income situation is.

it must be nice living on the far side of the world....
I spend more than that on any one of my monthly bills...

Shane always made it seem like the CoL in Oz was far higher that it was here.

Something like that here in the Bay Area is at least 450 dollars...

However, what Kurt and others stated above about making it reasonable as to your friend's financial situation is also what I suggest you should base it on...

250-300 sounds reasonable.
He's getting a pretty good deal with everything included and with his own bed/bath, a decent amount of privacy as well.

$300, then if he seems like he can't pay that, drop it to $275 or $250, that way you look like you are cutting him a deal.

We knew whatever we suggested he would be able to pay.

It's Cyn's old boss, and he has his own business LOL. He pretty much moved back to Pakistan, but is still 50/50 owner of the business he has here. He's just back until June, and the apartments he used to stay in don't do six month leases.

I guess Cyn felt bad saying $300 a month, so she said $75 a week so it wouldn't sound like as much He said that was a good price.

Thanks for the advice and suggestions guys

It is, but not as bad as you guys, I have perused rentals in parts of your country that i'd like to live in but I think you guys get expensive housing but cheap living, like grocery's and stuff, I don't think you're electricity is as much as us either, or phone plans for that matter. And hell, everyone here knows cable is expensive, but I find it unusual to hear of anyone in America not having it, unless they live in one of those dirty apartments in the city or on the streets.

Its a share house, its $280 a week, so my half is $140.

none, nothing. I didn't read the other responses. Stick, listen to me, this is disaster. Friends can never be roomates. You're married and have a life. No, do not do this stop now never. I'm telling you, this will be ugly and things will be fucked. Don't do this. Make it stop ASAP. This is your warning.
