Here I am again in search of an apartment in Manhattan. Looking for an apartment is never easy. There are several things that you need to consider. This includes the cost, accessibility, convenience and comfortability. More and more people have moved in to New York, in search for a better job opportunities and finding an apartment becomes so hard. The city doesn't have that vast area of apartments. You have to think that you have a lot of competitor. If you are a budget conscious individual then finding an apartment through a broker is not an option. Instead you can also use of a no fee broker through online.
Brownstone apartments is very popular in New York. Aside from it offers affordable rent, it has beautiful window boxes as well. Tree-lined trees are very inviting too. Many have thought that having a window box in apartment is very time consuming. According to some apartment dwellers that I have asked about how they manage their time between their work and at home. They answered that its about being resourceful and with the help of online ideas. Just like the woman I met, she said that with her window box she uses the Planter Well self-watering reservoir to irrigate her plants. Her friend recommended when she had a problem with her plants that gets withered because she forgot to water it. I was really amazed with the lovely flowers in her window box.
I went further to look for apartments. I found out that the average rent in the Upper East side or Upper West side ranges from $1,600 to $3,000 depending on the number of rooms you want to have. On the other hand, if you want to live in downtown Manhattan, the average monthly rental fee ranges from $1,500 to $8,000. If the cost is something that you have a great concern that you may consider staying in the Upper East Side.
Be wise and be practical in choosing an apartment. What matters is you're comfortable and safe anytime.
