Types of Rental Housing

There are multiple types of rental housing—from apartments and condominiums to single-family and multi-family units. Additionally, there are housing options designed specifically for students, seniors and those with income restrictions.

Always check to see if you qualify for any special housing or financial help that's available. Federal, state, and local governments, and many local and national non-profits, provide assistance to individuals and families looking to rent a home.
