Begin a search on Craigslist.org for apartment rentals in New Jersey by selecting the part of the state in which you want to rent, then following links to the housing section. The site lists North Jersey, South Jersey, Central New Jersey and Jersey Shore.

Next, under the Housing menu, select Apts/Housing. A gallery containing photos of available rentals in that area appears. You can limit the selections by price, number of bedrooms or bathrooms, or square footage. It is also possible to search specifically for furnished apartments, or for rentals that allow pets or are wheelchair accessible. Additional options include limiting your search according to the type of parking and laundry facilities that are available.
