A guide to apartments in Manhattan

If you are moving to Manhattan to study or work or if you are already leaving in the city and you are seeking for a better apartment, you have to be prepared. Read this article and get to know Manhattan's real estate market!

Where to look for

Places where you can find apartments
When you are searching for your Manhattan apartment, be sure to look online. There are a lot of real estate websites where you can find numerous apartments, from new condominiums to furnished apartments and extended stay apartments. Yet, you should be careful who you are making business with.
Consider only serious and well-established real estate companies staffed with professionals that will provide you with genuine information.
Such companies will effectively help you in your search for your dreamy Manhattan apartment.

What to look for

Things to look out for
Think about your budget before you start searching for your apartment.
Decide upon how much money you want to spend and try not to even consider apartments that are above your limit.
But make sure that you have realistic expectations.
Remember that Manhattan is very expensive. For example for a one- bedroom apartment, the prices will begin from 3000 $.
The price will rise and may even double depending on the neighbourhood, on the view the apartment offers you, on whether there is a doorman in the building or not and on a variety of other factors.
If you are a student or you have come to the city looking for a job, you should definitely consider the possibility of getting a room-mate.
When considering your budget, do not forget your broker’s fee (it depends on the deal you have made with him or her, so be cautious).
It should be noted that some landlords require an advance. Final word
Apartments in Manhattan can be very small.
So think of your needs and of your family’s needs, if you have one, or if you are planning to have one.
Ask your broker to find you exactly what you want.
Even if you experience an initial shock at the small apartment size, readjust your expectations.
Do not forget that finding the apartment of your dreams require a lot of patience.
