Welcome to NYC Rentopia

Hi!Welcome! This is a new website dedicated to the rental market in NYC, with news, information and links to my listings for apartments in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Most real estate websites about New York are focused on the sales market in spite of the fact that 2 out of 3 New Yorkers are renters. The rental market is just as complex as the sales market and there are as many reasons to rent as there are renters: some people prefer the freedom that comes with being a tenant–the security of knowing that the landlord or super will make repairs and maintain the building. Some tenants aren’t sure how long they want to stay in the city or plan to eventually move in with a family member or significant other. Often, the monthly cost of a rental is far lower than a mortgage payment would be on a comparable unit and many renters are on their way to home ownership, remaining in a lower-cost rental while saving for a down payment.

NYC is a city of renters and this website will chronicle that facet of life in New York.
