Gail Gladstone answered:

That may not have worked for you through Trulia, but posting the complaint through Trulia may have.

I am often looking for a Realtor to whom I might want to refer business in the city.

Contact me with your areas of expertise and a little background and let's see if we can make this effort work.

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,.

As for "what potential problems are we looking", not sure why you're not consulting with your attorney, rather than relying on online information....and when it comes to any necessary tax information, again a question better answered by your attorney, and or tax professional.... ... more

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

I looked up the building and noticed that it has a full-time doorman. Your best bet to get information like that about a particular building would be the doorman. Real estate agents normally steer clear of answering those types of questions. ... more

In order for people to answer your question, you have to tell us about what property you mean. Also, it usually tells you whether or not a property has sold.

Adina Greenberg answered:
The monthly costs are what you have to pay every month.
In a coop it's one amount, called maintenance. It's real estate taxes combined with the upkeep of the building, water and heat usually (may include doorman, management, etc).
In a condo you have two amounts, Common charges which is that same upkeep of the building and separate your real estate taxes. The amount you see there is what it cost per month, but you pay these quarterly (RE Taxes)

Christopher Pagli answered:
Most agents utilize a 6 month agreement. Three months is not a fair amount of time to market a property and get it sold. There are exceptions however, some properties sell the first week on the market. I guess your agent will determine what is fair based on the property, condition, location, and pricing.

Probably, I'm assuming you don't have negative history. Income will also play a role. At this point you may want to estblish some credit which can help you lower interest rates.

Why not simply work with an agent of your own who can provide any necessary information, and suitable listings; and generally your own representation is free.
