How to find the right apartment

NYC Skyline BW

Before we jump into the size and location of your next apartment, we need to consider a few things beforehand.

There are three main points that we need to look at as future renters.


  1. Check your total net income for the last 6 months. Net income is the amount you bring home after taxes.

  2. You want your rent to be no more than 40% of your net income. 

  3. Take your monthly paycheck and add up your net income for one month. Divide by 2.5 (better to divide it by 3 to be on the safe side) and this amount will be your rent budget.

Second-Chance Renters

  1. Make sure you are applying at a property that specifically accepts second-chance renters. 

  2. Try to build your rental history because bad rental history can ultimately affect the approval decision and  will make the approval odds slimier. 

Situations and Circumstances

  1. If you have situations or circumstances that may make the application process harder be sure to bring any necessary documentation or letters to reference or support that instance. 

  2. Remember that apartment leasing offices deal with a lot of people and paperwork and not having the necessary information to support your situation could result in denial for a technical situation.
