Craigslist can be very good and very bad when looking for short term rentals in nyc.

Craigslist is infamous for having brokers post apartments that are not really the right apartments and having the apartment look like the ” DEAL OF THE CENTURY” – as they would call it. You have to watch out for these.

Considering our customers are from all over the world we highly recommend looking on craigslist to get an idea for the market but not to actually rent the apartment. You might think you are getting a two bedroom but really its one room with a bathroom.

You have to be very careful when looking for a short term rental on craigslist because the website is not moderated by anyone.

The more you see the broker posting DEAL DEAL DEAL DEAL it is probably not a deal in the first place.

Short Term Craigslist Posts:

Usually on craigslist when it is a great deal the owner would post something like
“2 bed for rent – moving”

“cheap sublet – 1br”

Here is an image of some titles we did not think look so spammy

While the ones that are spammy look more like this
