A 1 bedroom typically rents for $2,000+. in most of Brooklyn. If you want to spend less than $2,000. you will have to sacrifice on safety, living with welfare residents and crime. Your budget of $1,350. is what Section 8 offers and this is typical for city housing projects. Since you earn a good income and have a great credit score, you can afford to increase your rental budget.

Unfortunately in NYC, residents typically spend about 40%+ on their rent. If you want to get a cheaper rental, move to the suburbs. Excellent public commuter railroads to Grand Central Station and Penn Station in 30 minutes during rush hours. A 1 bedroom in the suburbs rents for $1500. - 2,000.

The issue is landlords and owners have to pay for pet insurance which is very expensive. Therefore, it's much cheaper and easier for landlords to have a "No Pets" policy or to limit the weight or type of pets.

What you can do is pay for your own pet insurance, get your dogs a good dog certificate and this should help. This way if anybody sues you, you have insurance to cover it.

If you can't afford pet insurance or refuse to pay for it, don't expect landlords to give you an apartment.

You need to understand how Section 8 works. Landlords & building owners need to qualify before they are allowed to accept Section 8 or any other government program. There are inspections and if anything needs to be done, the landlord needs to fix it. Because of the expense & intrusion, landlords are very quick to say Forget It! Also landlords are operating a business & know they can easily make a profit from a regular renter paying full price than somebody like you on Section 8. Section 8 pays about 75% of the regular rent and they force landlords notmtomacceptmanything higher. Mere fore, the landlords will lose money every month. ... more
