Craigslist, PadMapper and EasyRoommate are three websites where users can find single rooms in homes available for rent. All three websites allow users to search for rooms by location and rent range, although the user needs to select an option to see rooms in houses only. EasyRoommate performs checks on the rooms that people post as available, while the other two websites don't have this feature.

When using Craigslist, users can choose to search for options such as whether pets are allowed, a private bath is included or if images of the room are available. PadMapper allows users to select the number of bedrooms desired and has an option for users to receive email when new rooms meeting the search options become available.
