To find affordable, one-bedroom duplexes for rent, utilize online search tools such as Rent.com and the Apartment Guide website. Resources on the Apartment Guide website help renters determine what size dwelling suits their needs, what budget they can afford, and what properties are available, according to the company website.
To access Rent.com and search for a one-bedroom duplex, navigate to the website's home page, and enter the ZIP code or city where you're searching for a home. Click the Let's Go button to see a list of available rentals. Narrow down your search by price, number of bedrooms, property type and a host of amenities. Rent.com also provides a Moving Center tab that allows users to get a quote on moving expenses. This section has moving tips and advice as well, including the ability to ask a mover questions prior to your move, explains Rent.com.
Apartment Guide offers a similar search tool to view available listings and narrow them down to your preferences. However, this website also publishes the AG Blog, which provides useful tips on how to live frugally and choose a dwelling that fits your needs and budget, explains Apartment Guide.
Both Apartment Guide and Rent.com offer smartphone applications for users to access available listings and stay up to date on new properties that come available, according to the company websites.
