CamPad Update: I’m still looking for an apartment in NYC. I’ve extended my deadline and give myself another month and a half to look for a place. I’m also considering trying to get around the brokers who want 15% of a year’s rent as a finder’s fee. The only way to do this is to get a referral from someone in a building or work directly with a building’s super, manager or retail management company (most of who list directly with the broker companies). It’s a tough system to break, but I’ll take a stab at it. Feel free to recommend “good” buildings in NYC/Manhattan that you think I should check out. In the meantime I think I’ll get some of these brokers to show me bunches of apartments for free. It’ll give me a good idea of what types of apartments are available in what areas of the city.
