Could be a silly question — i am beginning to look for a new apartment in the city and ideally want to rent from private landlords rather than going thru Apartment People / @ Properties / Compass, etc. How do you find private landlords?! I have good credit and am very clean! A landlord would love me lol

The apartments I found on were both private landlords and property management companies depending on the type of property (I was looking in LP which has a ton of private landlords). Try it and see if it works?


Thanks so much!

I moved here from Boston and used Domu. We also walked around neighborhoods we liked and saw a ton of for rent by owner signs in windows, just called those numbers and set up showing.


Thanks for the tip!

Check out Dig, run by a couple of brothers who renovate old apartments and then manage the leases!


I know you said you don’t want to use @ properties, but thats how I found my private landlord condo...they had plenty of private landlord listings. Well at least 2 years ago, not sure if changed


Second this. Our realtor we have bought two places with got her start helping ppl find rentals and still does some. Happy to send a rec


Haha if you are seeking a roommate in a large 3-bedroom in Old Town, let me know! You seem like my perfect kind of roommate.

Omg use the search function. This is asked every week. And to answer, Craigslist

Thanks pal, I did use the search function for “private landlords”

60M people need to be vaccinated. Offering them $1000 each would cost this country $60B. Realistically, you can get to half of that population — $30B. One booster shot for 250M people at 80% uptake — $200B. For $30B - $230B, we can end the pandemic in the USA. Worth it? Edited: add in $5M for an MBB to do this math and put it in a PPT for you. And $50M for a big 4 firm to implement, botch, reimplement.
