USA Roomies an online roommate mixer aimed for anyone needing a roommate in the United States is launching.

A newly developed website by the name of USA Roomies has been launched in order to connect roommates with others that have a room to rent. It is a simple to use web portal that requires a short registration process as well as the creation of a personal profile in order to interact with other members. New users are guided through the steps of making an ad and are then shown how to find a roommate by using the site’s various features. All postings are then sorted and presented to visitors according to their geographic location.

USA Roomies, a website devoted to pairing people with like-minded co-inhabitants in order to remove some of the difficulty that can go into finding a room to rent, has recently deployed their operations nationally. They are positioning themselves to be the primary option for those looking to find a simple online roommate locator or roommate referral service. The website enables users to post and browse wanted ads, which are sorted according to where they live or plan to move. It leverages users’ pre-existing social media resources as well as a dedicated messaging system to provide a seamless communication environment. By registering on the site, visitors are then able to browse the profiles and advertisements of other people and can also initiate correspondence.

Those looking for a room to rent are able to use the roommate search service to sort through existing profiles and ads in relative anonymity until they get ready to commit to a housing agreement. This is accomplished through a wide range of security customizations available to users that allow them to grant and rescind access to anything in their profile. Profile and personal details are kept secure in a manner that allows users to hide their pictures and data from such search services as Google and also makes picking the content that gets shared easy to manage. This helps alleviate apprehensiveness related to meeting new people online and also provides an additional element of safety. In fact, the organization has a stated goal of continuing to develop new methods for implementing a safe-browsing environment for all visitors.

USA Roomies’ referral service spans both the continental and non-contiguous United States and focuses on providing rental locator services to members in rural as well as urban centers. While the user experience employs a model similar to other online classifieds, it distances itself from the norm in the use of intuitive and socially relevant districts which include such cultural epicenters as military bases, colleges, suburbs, and even prominent neighborhoods. The website itself appears to be a direct response to common shortcomings associated with posting to classified websites including trust, effectiveness, and lack of customizability concerning not only ad content but also how it is represented in regard to location.


Online Rentals, LLC, an organization local to Austin, Texas is a web service provider for all things related to connecting people with prospective roommates to rent their available rooms. The business is the brainchild of software engineer and web developer, Pete Markakis, and represents the culmination of years of free-time investment. It will utilize a twofold approach and will feature an additional dedicated site, to launch in 2014, in order to provide an alternative to conventional apartment finders. Through the use of this variable approach to the housing and real estate market, they hope to stand out as the most efficient method of finding housing on the internet.
