Looking for an apartment in NY?
From my own experience as a model in NY, I know that it can be quite a challenge to find a nice apartment in the City.
In fact, when I first came to work in the USA, I had a hard time getting approved for a lease because of the ‘credit check’. Interesting, considering at that time, I had a mortgage in Holland and no debts under my name. I found out that, just because you have money in your account doesn’t make your credit score a good one. I decided to learn more about the U.S real estate market and it’s rules, so I became a real estate agent (First in Florida, later in NY). My personal experience now works as an advantage to my clients, which saves them from losing out on a good deal.
There are many listings on the market, but how do you know that what is being offered is safe, real and that it’s a great deal. Craigslist is a huge source for individuals looking for apartments but there are many false listings out there that are just there to take your security deposit and run.
As a real estate agent I have access to all available listings that are on the market and I know which advertisements are real and which ones are just there to attract your attention. Most home-owners/ apartments require a credit check, but how do you get your dream apartment if you don’t have a credit score yet? I can help you with that.
With a vacancy rate of only 1% in New York City, it is key to be prepared and to act quickly once you find your dream apartment.
