One Bedroom and Bamboo Floors in Brighton Beach
Price: $1,325
Location: Brighton 13th Street
Description: Are you tired of plain old wood floors? Well this apartment has something for the adventurous type: bamboo floors. All of the rooms have windows and cats and dogs are allowed. But, for obvious reasons, pandas are a no-no.

Two Bedrooms in Midwood
Price: $1,800
Location: 1580 East 13th Street
Description: Along with two bedrooms, this apartment also has two bathrooms. There is more than enough room in the kitchen for a small table and the rest of the apartment looks equally spacious with long hallways that make for some good echoes.

Four Bedrooms in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $1,750
Location: East 24th Street and Avenue U
Description: According to the realtor’s site, the apartment actually holds three and a half bedrooms but I rounded up for the sake of practicing my math skills. Based on the pictures, the apartment is large but the windows don’t get much sunlight because most of them face a neighboring wall.
Contact: Aramis Arjona, Town Real Estate, (516) 244-6728

Two Bedrooms in Gravesend
Price: $1,500
Location: East 3rd Street and Avenue Y
Description: This apartment can either be a one bedroom with a living room or two bedrooms or if you want to get all post-modern it could be two living rooms. The kitchen looks small but there is a good amount of closet space.
Contact: Chris Shiamili, Ardor Real estate, (212) 588-3000

  1. The problem is that they’re harder to verify. Our first shot at putting these together included a posting that turned out to be a scam. Most for rent by owner posts that are out there are on Craigslist, which we don’t pull from because of the alarming number of scams on there. Which leaves paid services. Which leaves brokers/agents.

    I’d much rather be sharing for rent by owner items, but until we get a good source for them, this is what we can manage.

  2. it is very hard to NOT find a scammer. I have seen so many listings with the same pictures of one apt. also, half the people i have called to look at a place either hung up on me or tried to get me to look at a different listing 🙁 I guess i might have to go through one of these guys.
