Craigslist is an online marketplace with sections devoted to housing and items for sale. Many landlords post available apartments and rowhomes under the "apts/housing" link on the website. This can be a great resource to find a place in one of Baltimore’s young, vibrant neighborhoods (see City Life for suggested neighborhoods).
If you do not already have roommates, the city also advertises available rooms as well as other individuals seeking roommates under the "rooms/shared" link. Once you have found your new home here in Baltimore, search "furniture" under the "for sale" section of the site for used furniture at a reasonable price.
All Craigslist users are advised to use caution when browsing listed apartments/items for sale and when contacting users who have posted housing.
