Apartment Rental Application

After we have successfully matched you and your RoomMates you will pay a non refundable $50 apartment rental application fee to submit your application to the building owner or management company.

Apartment Application Submission

You and each RoomMate will pay a deposit of 1 month of your private room rent when your apartment rental application is submitted to a building owner or property manager for review. This deposit will be returned to you if your apartment application is declined by the building owner or property management. This deposit will be deducted from monies due at lease signing for 1st month of rent and one month of security deposit

Lease Signing Costs
Due At Lease Signing

Each RoomMate will need the first month of rent for their private bedroom and one month of rent for their private bedroom as security deposit. Some apartments may have broker fees. Apartments are clearly marked as No Broker Fee or Low Broker Fee

No Security Deposit
Only Pay 1st Month of Rent To Sign Leases
Select Apartments

Select apartments allow qualified applicants to use a 3rd party Institutional guarantor, Rhino, to replace a standard traditional one month of rent security deposit for a small monthly fee. We will work with you and your RoomMate(s) to present your application so you qualify for signing leases with no security deposit needed.

Perfect Apartments

Perfect RoomMates

Looking for the perfect NYC apartment can be challenging. Looking for the perfect NYC roommate at the same time can be tough. You encounter different personalities, and it’s hard to know what kind of person will be a good fit for you to live with.

Any real estate broker can show you several apartments and rooms that might meet your basic criteria. Many roommate matching websites charge you to search for roommates yourself.

Apartments Expert shows you quality affordable apartments and rooms for free. We also presents you with RoomMate matches that appear to be compatible with your financial, lifestyle and social profile for free

Students looking for affordable off campus housing are welcome.
