How to find apartments?

I have had a very hard time searching online for small, minimally priced apartments. I don't even know what it could cost. Where to go? Do I need an agent or are there websites I am unaware of?

I am happy to help

Lori:

You are correct that this should be our focus-it is clear that from the first Rashi in the Bible to the Jewish people entering the land at the beginning of the Book of Joshua that HaShem wants us all here. I do not have the patience ti sit in the Beit Medrash all day, so I learn in the morning and then I chose to be a real estate agent in Jerusalem because I love helping Jews by homes here. I am happy to help you and anyone you know!

Please don't

As other people have commented, please do not buy a place in Israel only to leave it unused. The price of real estate has skyrocketed, and some of that is due to people overseas who buy homes that will be used only several weeks each year. The government is increasing the taxes on such places to discourage empty homes. By all means – buy a place if you plan to rent it to someone actually living here. Better yet – buy a place and live in it yourself. But don’t decrease the inventory of available housing for people who are living here if you don’t plan to be here yourself.
