In NYC we co-broke 50/50 between the tenant's agent and the listing agent.The standard fee in NYC is 15% of the first year's rent, the agreement on that fee is between the tenant & their broker not the the tenant & listing agent (unless the agent is representing both parties - which is called 'dual agency' and must be disclosed and agreed to by both parties in writing within the agency disclosure), but some apartments are listed for other amounts than the standard, so the tenant's agent should let the potential lessee know if that is the case - before showing the apartment to them so there is no misunderstanding. ... more

A typical studio on the Lower East Side will obviously vary in price, but the low end can be found starting at $1600. $900 is not near the price of the lowest , though if one seeks to find the absolute lowest price on an apartment it is conceivable that one for $1500 may hit the market, though it would be a frenzy and renters would quickly compete for it, so it would not last long. Some apartments that are de-stabilized may hit the market, but definitely not at the price of $900. ... more

just curious what an "appropriate" price is to you..........you aren't giving yourself much time now, are you?

Share your price range and when some NY agents stop by, they will be better able to help you......

Good luck

Hi Kelly

I am sure some Manhattan agents will come along with specific responses to what the inventory is for a studio at 1000 a month - probably limited options, but know that many landlords will require you to show 40 x the rent as income........so, with a rent of $1000, your part time job woud have to generate $40,000...........otherwise you may need a guarantor. The income requirements for a guarantor are much higher - possibly 80x the rent.

Best wishes..............

I have a two bedroom apartment near that address for only $2000/month. The downside is that there is no furnishing unfortunately, but at a price like that for a 2 bedroom, you can hardly complain. Let me know if you are interested!

Chelsea, like many places, can be a "good" place to rent. Just depends on what you define as "good".
And that's different for different people.

This is not a realistic budget - maybe you should consider being a roommate with someone or renting a room.

Requirements will depend on each individual landlord; generally proof of employment, credit report, security deposit, possibly reference letters, etc.

Jerry Trudell answered:
Finding an apartment can be tiresome, in this market of low vacancies. Your price range is also limiting, so this can add to the difficulty. Rents have risen fast over the past 5 years, and it is no longer easy to find something in your price range anymore. This may be a big part of your problem, in my opinion. Even if you can find something that you can afford, plan on to paying additional security deposit. If your credit score is significantly less than 650 , (you do not define low so I do not know what your score is) You will also have to meet the income requirement, not just be employed, The general rule is a yearly income of 40x combined monthly rent, so your yearly income requirement for an 1100 dollar apartment would be $44,000. dollars.
You may need an agent who has a very good relationship with an independent landlord to help you find something that you can succeed in renting, as you have slim chance of getting anywhere with a strict management company,as they are completely impersonal,.

Landlords set their own rules regarding credit requirements, and most do seek tenants with good credit; therefore consider being upfront, be prepared to show proof of employment/pay stubs, possibly have handy some reference letters, possibly be prepared to prepay some of the rent, or offer additional security deposit, etc.; or consider a guarantor... ... more
