Our listings are 100% free to access and you do not even need to make an account to see them (even though creating an account will help you by generating a list of apartments that fit what you are looking for as well as allowing you to favorite apartments and save them). Additionally, all of our market statistics and owner contact information can be accessed for free.
We work with 794 landlords and management companies to develop and update our database of no fee apartment rentals in Manhattan. We have one full time and two part time employees that update the database. Currently we have 3,121 apartments available for rent.
Many New York City brokers advertise their apartments as no fee. These listings are not truly no fee because the owner of the building pays a fee (an OP equal to one month's rent) to the broker. If you contact an owner directly on a no fee apartment - the owner won't have to pay a fee to a broker and will be more inclined to offer you a reduced monthly rent or free rent.
Lastly, we offer phone support (212-967-8000) 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST Monday thru Friday. If you do not reach us - please leave a message - we are CERTAIN to get back to you as soon as possible! We also can be contacted via email [email protected]
