A fairview is a small apartment unit that rents for less than $2,500 a month and typically includes a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom.
Fairview rental units are typically available in mid-market, lower-income neighborhoods and in some cities, such as Boston and Washington, D.C. It also may include common areas such as a garage, a laundry room and an outdoor space.
Fairviews are typically located in neighborhoods that have a mix of income levels and a mix that includes low-income residents.
They’re also typically a good way to get into an affordable apartment.
“The reason I started this blog was to help people in my community find fairview units,” said Jennifer Dvorak, who lives in the Fairview Apartments on the city’s south side.
“I just think there are a lot of people that aren’t being served in this way, and that’s really sad.”
Renters must be at least 20 years old to rent fairview.
If you’re interested in renting a fairground, you may have to show proof of residency and proof of income.
“You can get into the units for a fair amount of money, but they’ll typically be $2 to $3,000 a month,” said Dvorack.
The fairview unit, however, can have a variety of amenities, such a backyard pool, laundry, a garage or outdoor space, depending on the area.
Fairfields are also typically located at different elevations, so the unit’s owners may have a different bedroom size than the rest of the unit.
If a fairfield unit isn’t right for you, you’ll be able to negotiate a rent for it.
“It’s up to you,” said Robyn Hodge, the co-owner of the Fairviews in New York City.
“If you don’t have a fairgrounds or a fairmount, I’m happy to help you get in and out.
It’s a great rental.”
A fairmount is similar to a fairland, but it typically has a smaller bedroom, a shared kitchen, a full bath and a porch.
A fairmont unit is usually available in areas that are near parks and other outdoor spaces.
A small fairmount may cost $1,500 to $2.50 per month.
If the units are close together, there’s usually no charge to move in.
Fairmounts are also more affordable than fairgrounds, but rent can vary.
If your unit is in a lower-cost area and you need more space, you can also rent a fairmont for a lower amount.
“We have to be careful because it’s not a perfect deal,” said Hodge.
“But if it’s the right fit, I think it’s a really good deal.”
