If you are looking for apartments for rent in NJ (New Jersey), my first go to is bestrentnj.com
It’s simply a straight forward way to find a clean apartment. You can “search 85 communities for your new NJ apartment or town home.” They provide floor plans, maps and more.
However, be prepared to go through background checks, credit checks and typical scrutiny to ensure the landlord that you will pay monthly on time.
It’s good to remember that these companies are in business to make money.
If you are looking for apartments for rent in NJ that don’t do background checks, you can check out craigslist.org
There are many landlords that use this platform even without doing credit checks. But be mindful that such landlords tend to be the worst and least responsive landlords to your needs.
