Prices and Budgets
The prices and the budget for the Manhattan rental market very across-the-board but it is a well-known fact that many apartments in Manhattan are expensive because of the location in the metropolitan area in which they are situated. We encourage you to research the market further so that you have a better understanding of what to expect when it comes to viewing apartments and what the standard Manhattan apartment has to offer. We encourage all of our clients so that it is not a shock when they have to compromise certain features over others that are more important based on prices and budgets.
What to Expect
When it comes to assessing the Manhattan rental market, there are a few things that you want to expect and consider. First, you should know that many Manhattan apartments do not offer a lot of space but are valued at an extremely high price because of other amenities including location and interior furnishings. Other times, you may notice that locations that further away tend to be more affordable but might have less of the amenities that you want. This is likely where you will have to compromise and decipher which amenities are most important to you.
Another thing that you must understand is that Manhattan sometimes does not have a lot of space available. This means that you will likely have to share facilities with other tenants if you are in a building, you may not have access to a lawn or garden, and parking could be scarce. The space available is very minimal and many of our clients understand this but we have to reiterate it so that none of them are shocked when they see the options and the lack of space available.
Finally, the living standards are slightly different than what you might be accustomed to if you're not from the New York area. New York City is known as the city that never sleeps in this is because constant traffic and sirens are streaming through the streets no matter the time of night. This is something that we encourage all of our clients to consider because certain parts of the bureau are quieter than others. If you're looking for quiet, you may have to search for apartments that are further out, but they will be cheaper and suitable if that is a priority to you.
