What locals are saying

Situated just north of the Pennsylvania state line, in New York’s super serene Southern Tier, lies the little town of Elmira. Encompassing just 7.5 square miles and claiming 30,000 residents (100,000 if you include the metro area), Elmira isn’t exactly overflowing with apartments for rent, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be found (as long as you have your hands on a snazzy little apartment guide like this one, that is!) Whether you’re in the market for a cozy little studio apartment, a luxury townhouse in the suburban outskirts, or a pet-friendly apartment within city limits, you’ll find a nice selection in our listings. Furnished apartments and short-term lease deals are available as well, and renting specials pop up all the time, so feel free to search the market thoroughly in search of your Elmira dream pad!

You can rest assured you won’t be breaking your bankroll while living the good life in Elmira, since cheap apartments for rent ($600-$700) are pretty much the standard

You can rest assured you won’t be breaking your bankroll while living the good life in Elmira, since cheap apartments for rent ($600-$700) are pretty much the standard. Amenities, nevertheless, are often top-notch and usually include a swimming pool, gym, clubhouse, and complementary wifi. Just arm yourself with a basic renting arsenal that includes proof of income and a list of previous residences, and you’ll be kicking back in a primo Elmira, New York apartment rental before you know it!

Elmira is extremely rural. Obviously, take some time to visit the city and make sure you’re comfortable with its uber-relaxed small town vibes before embarking on your apartment hunting adventures. You won’t find too much differentiation between neighborhoods, but many of the more well-established rental properties are situated closer to the city center, while the more modern apartments and neighborhoods are located farther into the ‘burbs.

Looking to have some fun in Elmira? The city boasts 20-plus quality parks, a variety of historic sites and museums, a watering hole or two to appease the night owls, and a sprinkling of unique eateries (be prepared to fall in love with those legendary M&M Red Hots hotdogs). Factor in some of the most attractive and affordable apartments you’ll find anywhere in the Empire State, and we get the feeling you’re going to love life in Elmira!

Best of luck and happy hunting!
