What type of apartment are you looking for? If you're having a hard time it usually means your budget is on the low end. My best advice would be to work with an agent who handles at least 10-15 rentals per month and has access to "off market" apartments. If you need an agent let me know as I have one in my office who covers Queens and Manhattan.

You should hire a real estate professional to help you out with your search.

If the hard time is the rental prices, that;s the way it is in NYC. If you can't "find" an appropriate flat get with a broker. I suggest you get with Laura Thierer below and get the help you need in finding an apartment. I worked at Ardor New York some years back and they have a fantastic rental database.

By the way, the vacancy rate is well under 2% (last time I looked) and that means there isn't mush out there. If you're looking for a no fee apt at the height of the rental season that might be wishful thinking. Good luck.

Your best bet is to find an agent/broker that specializes in the area you are looking in or the type of apartment you are interested in. Same thing for NJ, just keep in mind that most agents are not licensed in both states.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I supposed you're working person? If so, it's difficult to find an apartment during work hours. Your supervisor may resent it and that may lead to trouble for you. Find a full time agent to help you locate your dream apartment at desire location.
