2 Rooms available in 4BR/2BA for Male or Female in ~20s, $625/month each; Free Parking. We are a two girls (23 and 26) with a 4BR, 2BA house on Baker Street, one block from Main Street and the Manayunk train station. We are both normal/chill working professionals and we are looking for two more people for our house. The house had been coed with two guys and two girls, but the guys are moving. We are open to guys or girls to take their rooms....just looking for good, responsible roommates. We would prefer young professionals, close to our age. As said, the house is located very close to the Manayunk train station, so it's great if you commute to the city by train. It is also located next to the pedestrian bridge that crosses over to the trails in Bala Cynwyd, so if you bike or run, it's a great location. In addition to being a fantastic location, the house also has a large free parking lot directly behind it, which is practically unheard of in Manayunk, especially so close to Main Street. About the roommates. I am 26 and went to West Chester University. I work regular hours for an HR company in King of Prussia. I love living in Manayunk. I go to the places on Main Street to eat or grab a drink and also go to Center City. I would like fun roommates (age 23-28 or so) who would also enjoy Manayunk and who are responsible and pick up after themselves. The other girl is 23, with similar interests, in addition to planting and gardening around the house. A little about the house. The downstairs is fully furnished. The living room has a large sofa and love seat, coffee and end tables, lamps, and a 55" flat screen tv. The dining room has a large table and six chairs and a sideboard. The kitchen is fully equipped with relatively new appliances. The washer and dryer are in the basement, which also has plenty of space for storage. There is also a nice patio area in the back for grilling and a small backyard. The house has two modern bathrooms on the second floor. The rooms that are available are both the same size, one on the second floor and one on the third floor. They are approximately 9 x 13 with wall-to-wall carpeting, built-in closets and ceiling fans. The rent for the rooms is $625 plus one-fourth of the utilities. The rooms are available now or September 1, but the move-in date can be a little later depending on your situation. FYI, the lease does not allow smoking or pets. If you are a social person who would enjoy living near Main Street and you are reasonably neat, send some basic information about yourself and we can set up a time to meet. Also feel free to ask any questions.

We are looking for a guy to fill a room at a our house at the intersection of Silverwood and Conarroe Street, one block from Main Street and the Manayunk train station (so easy commute to Temple or Center City). The available room is on the second floor of the house. It is a decent size room (about 11 x 14), carpeted wall-to-wall with a large armoire and ceiling fan. The best part is that the room comes with one reserved off-street parking space located directly behind the house, which is unheard of in Manayunk, especially one block from Main Street! Parking alone costs $125 per month nearby, so it's definitely a great perk to have! The house itself has four bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The downstairs of the house is fully furnished. The living room has pretty much new stuff, including a sofa, love seat, coffee table, end tables, lamps and tv stand with a large flat screen tv. The dining area has a table that seats up to six people. The kitchen is equipped with all relatively new appliances. The second floor has one large bedroom (the one available), a full bath and a half bath, and a new washer and dryer. The third floor has two other bedrooms. The fourth bedroom is in the basement and has its own private entrance and private bathroom. The roommates in the house are all young professional guys, ages 22-25. Everyone works regular business hours. We are looking for another similar guy who is responsible but also likes to have a good time, especially on the weekends. The room is available this month or else September 1. The rent for the room will is $775 plus 1/4 of the utilities (which is really $650 when you factor in the value of the parking space). Smoking in the house and pets are not permitted under our lease. You can't beat this arrangement with a fully furnished house, one block from Main Street and reserved off-street parking! If you are interested, send some basic information about yourself and when you are looking for a place. Let us know when you are going to be around and we can set up a time to meet up and show you the house. The house itself has four bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The downstairs of the house is fully furnished. The living room has pretty much new stuff, including a sofa, love seat, coffee table, end tables, lamps and tv stand with a large flat screen tv. The dining area has a table that seats up to six people. The kitchen is equipped with all relatively new appliances.

We have one of the best houses in Manayunk and are looking for a guy to fill the room of one of the guys who is leaving. The house is on Mansion Street between Ripka and Hermitage. It's close to the Ivy Ridge train station and a ten minute walk to Main Street, so very convenient. We are all young professionals. Everyone is in the 23-26 age range. The house itself is awesome! It was completely renovated a few years ago, so everything is new and very modern. The downstairs is huge! It has hard wood floors throughout and is fully furnished. The front living room has three sofas, coffee and end tables, lamps, carpet, and a tv. The dining room has a large table and six chairs. The kitchen is huge with all new appliances. There is a large half bath off the hallway near the kitchen. Off the kitchen in the rear of the house, we have a very large family room (which is where we hang out most) which leads to a nice patio and back yard. The family room has a large sectional sofa, another sofa, coffee and end tables and a new 65" flatscreen tv. There is a large, dry basement for storage. The house has central air, which definitely makes a huge difference this time of year. The washer and dryer are on the third floor. There are two full bathrooms, one on the second floor and one on the third floor. The room that is available is the large bedroom on the third floor. It is about 11x13, carpeted wall-to-wall with a large closet and a ceiling fan. The rent for this room is $695. All of the utilities are split five ways, which would include electric, gas, cable TV and internet. We have Verizon Fios internet and tv with a premium sports package. We keep the house pretty neat, with everyone picking up after themselves. Occasionally we hire a cleaning lady to come in just to keep things in good order. We are pretty easy-going guys. We work and generally keep it lower key during the week, going running or to the gym after work and then chilling, and then tend to have more fun on the weekends. We have a decent back yard and a new grill, so we use that a bit in good weather. We are all pretty active and all into sports. We are looking for a young professional guy to join the house, someone who is similar to us. Send a response with some basic information about yourself if you are interested. Also let us know when you are able to come by and we can set a time for you to see the place. We are available to show the room evenings or weekends. The room is available anytime this month. We're pretty sure that we have one of the nicest houses in Manayunk, and we are looking for a good guy who has similar interests and who will appreciate living in a very nice place. No smoking and no pets.

Utilities will be split four ways. We can also furnish the rooms with a bed, dresser, desk and desk chair if you need furniture. We would prefer either a young professional (around our age) or grad student for the house. We are pretty easy going without a lot of drama and would prefer roommates who are the same and who want to hang out to do things from time to time and become friends. The only requirements are that you be reasonably neat in the common areas and that there would be no smoking and no pets in the house. If you are interested, send some basic information about yourself. Make sure to include your age, what you do for work/school, and some of your interests.

City Guide for Philadelphia, PA

I live and breathe this Philadelphia freedom. From the day that I was born I've waved the flag. Philadelphia freedom took me knee-high to a man. Gave me peace of mind my daddy never had." (Elton John - "Philadelphia Freedom").

Philadelphia has spent the last 20 years transforming itself into a bustling city that’s clean, lively, welcoming, and –dare we say it?– hip. We've even been called New York’s sixth borough, though we locals prefer to think of New York as Philadelphia’s second borough. Or something like that. In other words, you've made a good choice. And now that you’re ready to find your apartment, here’s the first thing you need to know: the City of Brotherly Love is a city of neighborhoods, all close to each other but each with its own flavor. So let’s break them down.

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments under $800 in Philadelphia, PA

Finding a deal on affordable apartments under $800 in Philadelphia is worth the extra effort. Come ready to pounce on the best deals. Call the property management in advance to ask what paperwork they need and come prepared. Bank statements, pay stubs, identification, and letters of recommendation from an employer or landlord are usually standard. It’s better to come to an apartment tour over-prepared and ready to sign.

You probably won’t find affordable apartments under $800 in Philadelphia in the heart of the action, but you can still land in a neighborhood you love. Look for locations on the outskirts of your dream location or reconsider how much space you really need. A studio apartment may offer plenty of space in your ideal neighborhood at a cheaper price point.

Some property managers will also know about apartments under $800 in other buildings they manage, or through word-of-mouth from industry contacts. Ask about any leads if you can’t find the space you need. Touring the first floor for affordable apartments that need some updating can also yield a great deal.
