You'll find a variety of rentals available in Little Ferry. If you are looking for a complex, consider one of the one-bedroom apartments available around town. Wishing for fewer immediate neighbors? There are duplexes for rent in Little Ferry, as well as quite a few multi-family homes. If you are willing to pay even more, you could rent a single-family home from a private landlord.
Whether you decide to rent from a property manager or a private owner, you're going to need to prove that you not only can pay the rent, but also that you actually will. How? Your past can determine your future! Hopefully, you are going into this venture with a squeaky clean credit report, a good reference from your current landlord and a steady job. If you are lacking in any of these areas, offering a double or triple deposit up front can go a long way toward helping you look more appealing to potential landlords.

One of the best things about living in Little Ferry is that you are so, so close to New York City and all that it offers. You can hop on one of the buses that leaves every twenty minutes and be there in about a half hour, or if you want to depend on your own wheels, you can take Interstate 95. Be forewarned: if you drive, you'll probably hit traffic, so the quick jaunt could end up taking you an hour or more. However you get there, you'll soon consider the Big Apple as part of your extended neighborhood, and you'll feel right at home.
