Why it’s a deal: This Clinton Hill 1-bedroom offers a lot of bang for your buck. Priced $357 below the neighborhood median of $2,657 (see StreetEasy’s Q1 Market Reports for other price comparisons), it’s a great value considering the amount of space potential renters would be getting. Still, if you are a bit short on cash, the unit also accepts guarantors to help secure the rental.

Biggest drawback: While it is difficult to find something wrong with a rental offering so much value in a popular nabe, there are a few things left to be desired. Both the kitchen and bathroom are a bit dated with older finishes and fixtures. But for the price, can we really be that picky?
