3 Questions to Ask When Narrowing Down Your NYC Apartment Selections

So many factors come into play when deciding on an apartment, particularly in New York City, to the point that it can be easy, at times, to overlook crucial details. Here are three questions you should ask yourself before you decide to move forward with a choice.

What is the monthly maintenance cost for each of the units?

Monthly maintenance are the monthly fees you pay to the co-op or condo, and in a well-run building, they typically increase 1-3% per year, and even upwards of 5% as of late, due to inflation. On sites like StreetEasy, you can check the history of a property's maintenance fees under "Past Sales," which could help with negotiation.

What do maintenance fees include?

In order to compare apples to apples when reviewing your finalists, look into whether the monthly maintenance fees simply include heat and hot water, which is typical, or utilities as well. Furthermore, what amenities does each building offer for that monthly fee? In a co-op, for instance, your monthly maintenance includes real estate taxes; this wouldn't be the case for a condominium rental.

Have you reviewed the "House Rules"?

Prior to putting in an offer, ask your broker to collect a copy of the building rules for your review. Familiarizing yourself with these rules, which can range from pet allowances to noise restrictions, could be a make-or-break factor.

An impressive article, to be honest, I did not even expect to read this, but as for me, it is for the best when you know what you can expect, so I remember there was also a problem with mail limits, but not with the language, but simply could not send a letter to the tenants, I was lucky to have the Yespo Blog at hand, which helped me to understand the problem and I continued my work calmly, even after an hour, I got a response, and two hours later, we signed a lease agreement.


I remember when we first moved to New York, we had not three questions, but more. When we were choosing an apartment to rent, we communicated with the owner by mail, and it was good that the translator was turned on, because the deal would not have worked out, and with my knowledge of Portuguese, we would have been left without an apartment. It was good that it was only a rental, because when we bought our own, there were no such misunderstandings. And we had only three questions)
