I am apartment hungting in the NYC area with SO. I am so exhausted!! Prices are super hight of course…which something we knew already. But for the price that we are looking for is literally a box. This has been so frustrating so far. I am hoping that we will soon find a place. He needs to move in by Jan 1st! its so frustrating!! i am doing all of the research since SO is super busy at work this week. 🙁 on top of this i have been applying to grad school o work is hectic for me too. I am super stress out!! just needed to vent.
Anybody else apartment hunting in the nyc area? or any other area?

@katherin788: My SO and I are “always hunting”. We are currently on a month-to-month basis in our apartment, so we’re always keeping an eye out for something better. In this market, it seems impossible to find! We’re in Chicago, so the rent is more manageable, but one of our closes friends just moved back to New York. She’s in Brooklyn and loving how much more space she can get for her money. Good luck to you and your SO!

@katherin788: We are in the DC metro area, so I can sympathize with price – although it’s not quite as bad here. We are moving when our lease is up in May, but we almost broke it earlier this year…so I have a small compulsion to CONSTANTLY look and look and look due to how unhappy we are where we’re at. FI thinks it’s turning into an unhealthy obsession…but yes it’s frustrating!!

@katherin788: I don’t know how good it is in your area but hotpads.com helped us find a place in downtown Orlando. It compiles multiple listing sites like craigslist and MLS into one place. You can search by city/zip code or by map.

We used to live in NYC so I totally understand your frustrations. Where are you looking? Any of the outer boroughs or just Manhattan? We lived in Manhattan for a while, then moved to Westchester for a few years. It’s tough (and super expensive!) out there… Good luck!

@windyPhoebee: month to month..that sounds like an awesome deal! i dont think ive ever heard of those here in ny!
@ebarnes0: omg these prices are gonna kill our budget! its honestly crazy. You dont get much for what we are able to afford for now…we can increase it and still have room to be ok but i honestly dont want to spend so much on someone elses mortgage 🙁
@beachbride1216: I will absolutely take a look at this! thank you 🙂
@Mrs. Coyote: its so frustrating!! we are looking greenpoint, williamsburg area. We would ideally love to live by the LES. We have looked at places there but right around our budget and i would love to save as much as we can. N those places are taken within hours lol its crazy. I called a place today located in the west village..but it was gone within 5 hours!!! lol i was like seriously!! omg i was so surprised. This is my first time apartment hunting, I live in long island with my parents. Im crossing fingers i will find something soon!
