If there ever was a time to move into your dream rental apartment in New York City, it is right now, with the pandemic significantly affecting vacancies and signed leases. UrbanDigs, the unbiased source for Manhattan real estate data, insights, and commentary, revealed in their June 2020 Sales & Rental Report that Manhattan saw the highest number of monthly new listings since July 2017 this past June. It was up 14% year-over-year and even 27 percent up from May. Meanwhile, leases signed were down 57 percent. This combination of high inventory with fewer leases signed means the pressure is on for landlords, which is why they are more willing to give out concessions, offer deals, and negotiate the monthly rent.
Behold some of the most amazing rental listings that are on the market right now. Each has a standout feature that makes them irresistible, whether it be great value for money, great amenities, or a great location.
128 East 83rd Street, Apt 4B is a two-bedroom, one-bathroom gem on the Upper East Side that could be yours for just $2,950/month! Yes, you read that right. A two-bedroom on the Upper East Side for under $3,000/month is an amazing value for money! Sign me up. This is a far cry from the median asking rent of $4,750/month for 2 bedrooms on the Upper East Side in July so far, according to data by UrbanDigs. This amazing deal doesn’t mean you have to compromise on anything here. According to the listing description, “The apartment features loads of brownstone charm: high ceilings and exposed brick throughout, with recently refinished floors.” Since this is a fourth-floor walkup, a one-year lease will give you the toned legs of your dreams.
