Frustrated with the hassle in time & cost of enlisting a broker or real estate agent to secure your next home? Make things easier on you by taking back control of the renting process -- investing little time with maximum savings by opting for an NYC no-fee apartment. When we talk about coveted no-fee rentals in NYC, that means no broker’s fee charged at signing -- an unfortunate outcome we’ve all been forced into with the assumption that it’s a requirement for securing a quality apartment. Depending on your broker contract, this can be a month’s worth of rent, or 12-15% of your annual rent. Keep in mind that you’ll also need to set aside thousands of dollars at the lease signing for the landlord’s first and last month’s rent and a security deposit. And that’s all before you even move in.
