A new little family member made its appearance in your life and your apartment suddenly became too small? Having some toys laying around in the living room at noon is one thing.

Not something that you’d expect at 2:30 a.m. Frankly, it looks like you’re one bedroom short.

Cheap housing for young families

If you are a small, dynamic family renting a 2 bedroom is a smart choice as it offers the golden ratio of living space, location and price. All these are now important criteria that you have to have. Space? If you want to keep yourself and Thomas the Tank Engine in different rooms, then this one doesn’t need any explanation. Location? You don’t want to totally give-up on those Friday nights out or your Thursday after-hours, but babysitters cannot always stay late in the night, so it helps if you’re in an area close to restaurants and theatres. Price? You could put the extra couple of bucks you’re saving on rent monthly into your child’s college savings plan.
