Rentals: Take It, Or Lose It!

The Wall Street Journal last week released an article on the state of the rental market in NYC. I urge anyone looking to move to read this article!

The days of "well I am seeing a lot of stuff on the internet..." are over. And the crap you see on the internet most of the time isn't even real. Think about it: 1000 listings on Craigslist of the same type of apartment, size, location and price? Really?

Read this, take it for what it's worth and take action! You can view the story here.

further reason why i do not like the fake, outdated, garbage that is on CRAIGSLIST!

Thanks to our friends at Curbed who posted an ad from Craigslist. Now, in the coming days I will be posting a story on the pros and cons of using the internet to search for an apartment in NYC. But until then, please enjoy this laugh. I say laugh because it's funny, however it's something I deal with daily.

Take EVERYTHING you see online for what it's worth! Don't believe everything you see. Put your trust in a Broker. Yes, many can be annoying and unfortunately some aren't 100% ethical, but that's not who I am.  My clients reward me by sending me referrals. I don't rely on blind advertising such as Craigslist for business. Again, that post will be coming soon.

Here is the link to the article.  Enjoy!

On May 5, 2010, the NYC Rent Guidelines Board adopted a proposed range of renewal lease guidelines for rent stabilized apartments, lofts and hotels. A summary of the proposed guidelines is available here (in pdf format)...

Confusing? Not really. Every year the department sets guidelines for landlords. This is good news for renters! If you have questions about this annual increase or want to talk about how this affects you, contact me! Call me at 212-452-6108. I will walk you though the report and will let you know how it applies to you!

Happy Thursday everyone! | | Facebook
