Renting an apartment any time of year can be a daunting task. But just try renting an apartment in Long Island City, Williamsburg or surrounding areas during the summer months…good luck Chuck! So it’s nice to know luxuryrenting has compiled the best “fool-proof” tips for renting and securing that dream home in New York City and the neighboring boroughs.
Skip the Classified Section
The days of looking in your local newspaper’s classified section for luxury apartment rentals are over! The best way we know to find that diamond-in-the-rough is to look on Craigslist or similar electronic listing services. By simply utilizing the individual websites “search” or “filter” functions you can compress your search results and get back exactly what you are looking for. Punch in your wants, needs, amenities, add-ons and more–these tools are designed to save you valuable time! Plus, your fingers won’t get soiled from all that yucky ink on the paper.
You’ve Got Mail!
Here’s another easy way to help you streamline the search for your new luxury apartment. Set up email alerts from your favorite “apartment search site” or institute a few “google alerts.” These emails, delivered straight to your email in-box will keep you abreast of all the apartments for rent in Williamsburg, Long Island City or in another particular area, town or borough-it all depends on the criteria you put in! You can even narrow the alerts down to the street where you want to live. Let’s face it… you’re checking your email every day anyway, so why not put it to work for you! The only time you’ll spend is opening each email and scanning the contents of each listing. Most apartment websites these days have “search” or “alert” functions to help you find that perfect apartment and when you move in, just “unsubscribe” to the emails and you’re done! “This in-box is clean.”
Stop checking your twitter feed and keep reading! We know you just love chatting with friends on Facebook, tweeting with co-workers and Instagramming your lunch-but If you’re looking for an apartment–now’s the time to get serious! Your social media accounts are more than just silly play things; why not use them to let people know “you’re on the hunt!” Post messages to your Facebook wall and on community pages. Hashtag all your posts on twitter with the location you’d like to live, the number of bedrooms you want, the number of bathrooms…you get the idea. How about taking photos of your friends’ apartments and posting them to Instagram or Pinterest and letting people know you want a place just like it! You’ll be surprised at the results you get in return.
