Sabrina sitting in her Manhattan apartment

Manhattan is a competitive rental market: one minute an apartment is available, then quicker than you can snap your fingers, it’s already been scooped up. Renters need to be on their toes, ready to pull the trigger when they find a place that fits their needs. Sabrina knew it was going to be a challenge, so she began her search a couple of months before she had to move.

“I knew it was going to be hard since New York is such a competitive place so I started my search early on Trulia.”

Sabrina turned to our iPhone Rental app, and with just a tap, she checked out neighborhoods and found nearby homes and apartments for rent. She was also able to tailor her search by location and price to find the perfect area.

“It was so easy to narrow down my desired neighborhood on the Rental app. With the mapping feature, I could physically see the area and amenities, and see what was going on nearby. It was my favorite part of the search because it was super convenient and so visual.”

Every day and night, Sabrina would take time out of her busy schedule to make appointments with landlords or brokers, but she also relied heavily on Trulia’s push notifications.

“I wanted to be notified quickly when new properties that met my specific search criteria hit the market. Trulia’s app was great about keeping me updated with the best rental listings.”

With the help of Truila’s Rental iPhone app and her broker, Sabrina found the perfect Manhattan apartment. “It was a lot of work to find the right place in a timely manner, but Trulia made it easy.”
