STEER CLEAR OF CLASSIFIED AD RENTAL SCAMS!
Recent rental advertisements on Craigslist, and possibly elsewhere, have turned out to be scams. Be wary of advertisements for local rental properties posted by distant landlords. A recent scam requests that prospective tenants send a deposit by mail in exchange for a key to the property. Never send money to someone prior to verification that they are a legitimate landlord.
At the present time, the overall market vacancy rate in the local Fort Drum area is approximately 3-5%. Many of these vacancies consist of two-bedroom apartments, both older and new construction, which may be ideal for smaller Families. If your Family is seeking a larger home you may experience some difficulty finding an ideal rental as three, four and five bedroom apartments are not as readily available. In this case you should consider rentals further away from Fort Drum, but still within 30 minutes commuting distance or may wish to consider renting or purchasing a single Family home that will better meet additional bedroom requirements.
