How much do we prorate for re-renting a room? Posted on July 03, 2011

We are renting a room in our house on a month-to-month basis, at $350/mo. We charge a $100 reservation fee, which is applicable toward first month rent. The current renter paid this reservation, then moved in and paid the rest of the rent. After the 1st day she changed her mind & moved out. So if we re-rent the room ASAP, how much should we reimburse her for the first month's rent? Should we prorate the entire amount for days after we find a new renter? The entire amount minus the $100?
