how to apartment hunt when do i start
How to apartment hunt:When do I start?
  • The process can start now!
  • If possible, take some time during Pre-View to get to know NYC neighborhoods and short list those that are most appealing. (Go both during the day and at night).
  • Come back later this summer and give yourself time to look around.
  • Listings for end-of-August move-in dates generally open up at end of July/beginning of August.

How to apartment hunt:What else do I need to know?
  • Be prepared at viewings! Always bring your checkbook, ATM card, and a photo ID.
  • Bargain! The market is soft right now, and rents are often negotiable. You can sometimes negotiate a month’s rent free.
  • Make sure you look at several places before making a decision. There are a lot of great places available.
  • Don’t bother looking at the Trump World Tower until you’ve got your great banking job lined up next year or you get cast on The Apprentice.

  • Landlords will ask you for a larger deposit or a few months of rent in advance unless you know a US resident willing to co-sign your lease. Find someone who will sign for you.
  • It may be worth paying a broker’s fee if you are under time pressure (i.e. spending money to stay at a hotel) to make sure you can see the maximum number of apartments in a short time period.
