Are any of y'all househunting or know someone who's looking for a place to live in Oakland?

I'm moving out of my kickass apartment and I'd love to find someone to take my room. I'm planning to move out around Sept 3, so someone to move in around then would be great, and any help you can give towards finding that person would be much much appreciated.

Quick house details:
It's a 2br/1ba apartment near 42nd & Broadway in north Oakland. The room's a decent size (10' x 11', I think, with a big closet and extra bit by the door), there's a small-but-entirely-functional kitchen, huge bathroom, and the common space is big and wide-open and gets lots of good light. It's in a 4-unit building with laundry downstairs and a little shady patio in back. Easy walking distance to Rockridge and MacArthur BART, ~3 blocks away from the 24-hr Safeway/Longs on 51st, and easy walking distance to the Piedmont St. and Rockridge neighborhood shops/restaurants/bars/etc. The neighborhood's one where I don't worry about wandering around alone late at night, which is nice.

I'll be moving out sometime around September 3rd, so finding someone to move in ASAP after that would be great. Rent is $622, deposit is $750, utility bills include water, PG&E, and internet. My current housemate, Chris, is staying in the apartment. He's a programmer who moved out here from Boston a year ago to go to school for acupuncture; he can be occasionally odd (I have odd friends? Really?), but he's a good guy and a fine housemate. Living with a massage therapist who's happy to have someone around to practice on is also Not A Bad Thing.

It's been a great place for me to live for the past three years, and I'm going to miss it.

I have indeed! I'm moving on Wednesday to a house in the inner sunset.

Hi there-- I'm a friend of [ profile] tamnonlinear's and have really admired the comments I've seen of yours over on her journal for awhile now. Would you mind if I added you as a friend?

Hi! I've heard a bit about you from her, I think (good things!), and you're entirely welcome. Most of my posts are locked-and-filtered these days, so I'll add you back.
