Finding a Good NYC rental apartment is not a easy task in Manhattan New York. It is important to understand the time frame involved when looking for a suitable apartment. This blog will help you figure out the time frame before your search so you can plan ahead.
There are TWO types of buildings you may be able to find a good NYC rental apartment.
Option #1 is the condo buildings to find a good rental apartment (example: Gramercy Starck), higher quality of building and service, because it is built for permanent residents. If we were to look for apartments in Gramercy Starck or other condo buildings (renting apartment from a private owner), the process from the time to find the perfect apartment to able to move in may take 30-45 days. The paperwork has to be submitted into the condo board and it takes 30-45 days for them to review and approve the paperwork (application). With that being said, to be safe, if you were aiming to move in by September 1st (9/1), the latest we can submit the paper would be maybe July 15 (7/15) if you have to move in by end of August (8/31).
Option#2 is the rental buildings to find a good NYC rental apartment (the entire building is renters, no owners), this type of building also offers doorman, fitness center and everything like condo building but the neighbors are all renters and sometimes it has a more transient environment rather than homes. The positive side of this type of building is that it will approve your paperwork sometimes within 7-10 days and you can then move in right away. With this type of option, if you were to start looking early in June for example, they will most likely require you to move in end of June or sometimes middle of July because they would not keep the apartment vacant more than one month.
