Okay John, I hope your buddy can find her one where he can make a commission especially as in our MLS (not yours in NJ) there isn't even a category for basement apartments..

HI Deedee, since basement apartments are illegal in our neck of the woods you might want to look at other resources other than licensed agents to get information.

Hi Deedee. You could check out http://www.mlsli.com as well as local newspapers. You may also want to consider working with an Agent of your choice to assist you in your search. What price range are you looking in, and what areas in Queens exactly? How soon are you looking to move? Consider sitting down with an Agent so they can understand exactly what you are looking for.

I hope this answered your question! If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by the ways below.

Wishing you all the best,
