How To Find An Affordable Place To Move To In The Bronx

Finding a place in New York City that is affordable is possible. But it will take some time and a little bit of work to pull it off. The Bronx is one place in New York where you can find housing at an affordable rate. In fact, you can even afford to rent a small house there. Some houses can go for less than $2,000 a month. In Manhattan, $2,000 a month can probably afford you a studio apartment. So you can get more for less if you work hard enough to find it.

But where do you look? Thankfully, Simply Moving is here to help. Once you find a place, you can hire the most trusted team of movers in New York City. Here’s how you can find an affordable place to move to in the Bronx:

Find listings that fit within your budget and get more information about the place. Keep in mind, you may not find a place in the first go around. If you are discussing a place with the landlord, use your best judgement. You might feel like you may be getting a bad deal upon further further investigation. If that’s the case, move on to the next place on your list.
    Also, look on reputable websites like Often, these sites will have listings that won’t be found on Craigslist.
  • Ask Around: Sometimes, it never hurts to ask someone who is familiar with the area. If you get very little information, don’t give up. Your best source for information can be realtors or property managers in the area. Just be sure you’re on a fact finding mission and try not to get sucked into deals that may seem too good to be true.
  • Check Out This Site: Did you know that there is a lottery for affordable housing in New York City? No kidding.

    Great group of MOVERS.

    The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.
