To find a two-bedroom duplex, visit a national rental website, such as Homes.com or Rentalads.com, then follow the links to the duplex pages. When prompted to choose the number of bedrooms, select "2" from the dropdown menu. Indicate the rest of your preferences to get the most favorable set of listings possible, advises rentalads.com.
Other features to choose when looking for a duplex include the number of bathrooms and a price range including minimum and maximum rent. Entering the city and state or ZIP code where you're looking to live, in addition to the other parameters, yields a set of listings that fulfill those specific requirements, as stated by Homes.com.
Click on the link in the first listing that you find interesting. Select duplexes that feature photographs to get a visual impression of the place before contacting the owner. People who keep their rental properties in tip-top typically post a number of pictures of the inside and outside. Getting a look at the bathrooms and kitchen ahead of time gives you a sense as to whether the duplex is likely to suit your needs, notes Homes.com.
For major metropolitan areas, Craigslist features location pages that also include duplexes on the rental page. Type the word "duplex" in the search field on the Rentals page, and indicate that you want two bedrooms using the dropdown box, advises Craigslist.
