Much will depend on the individual landlord; therefore consider being upfront; be prepared to show proof of employment/pay stubs; possibly have some reference letters handy; consider a guarantor.... more
They won't, but in places like Manhattan rents would skyrocket. That would in turn make rents in the boros and suburbs skyrocket, which would drive the price of under $500,000 home prices up substantially. The amounts of homelessness and poverty would also jump up steeply. Neighborhoods would become less diverse and more monolithic. What they need to do is change the criteria and eliminate people who don't need rent controlled apartments and are just using the system. The system is sick, but killing it helps very few people and will hurt many.... more

I would say location is most important factor an drives the value. Size may be important and sometimes one would have to compromize location for the size. Some people prefer to do their own renovation but visually renovated apartments are much more likeable and if renovattion is good why go through the hassle. It is always reflected in the price... more
It all depends what is their policy on a lease break, but if you can find someone who will take over your lease, or will start a lease as soon as you move out the landlord will be mo open to let you go without penalty.
Also if you only paid 10 month and got a year, your last month may be free anyway so they shouldt
Just ask them what is the best way to do it as there is no correct answer except the one the landlord will give you. In any case the rental market is so strong right now they shouldnt have a problem renting your apartment sooner and charging more rent from the next tenant.
Hope this helps
I don't think it's weird to ask. Generally every time an apt. turns over, they raise the rent (unless it's not a rent-stabilized apt.). So it is possible that there are similar units to yours that might be less because it has not turned over as much. Or, perhaps you can downsize. As far as the deposit, yes, it would be applied.... more
Portfolio lenders do exist but they're hard to come by especially when lenders want to sell there notes to get quick money to lend again, that's how most lenders make there money not on holding it by selling it to a second party, loans can be sold over and over. If you don't mind me asking why a portfolio lender??? Why not a regular lender???... more
Did you sign his fee agreement? If so, you're probably stuck with paying. The agent or his firm may choose to litigate to collect the fee. I can't blame you for not wanting to pay. Your agent appears to have done a lousy job.... more
You can find a rental in New York City that accept pets, but your search is limited to those landlords that accept pets only. Some of them don,t accept more than one pet per apartment. A broker would know to tell you what options you have, depending of your budget , size of the apartment and area.
My answer is: It is harder , but not impossible .
Good luck to you!

If you decide to rent your apartment you have two options: Furnished witch is more money and unfurnished. I advice you to advertise both options with different prices. Usually short term leases are furnished apartments. Your second question was what kind of services does an agent provide? The agent that you decide to list with. is doing the advertising , open houses, individual showing, multiple listing witch is very important for all the brokers in NYC to see the listing and bring the clients.
