I’m wondering what everyone is forking over for rent and whether my prices range is right. I’m moving to NYC (3rd year, inhouse lateral), and my partner and I (no kids, 1 dog) are looking in upper east, Williamsburg (west of BQE), and Greenpoint. We’d like some space (>950sq.) because we both work from home often. Based on the market, we set a budget of $6,300. I understand this is highly subjective, but we would appreciate feedback whether that price point sounds right given our parameters.

Should I make that clear to my superiors before offers are given out or will that hamper my chances at getting an offer in the first place? Thanks for the help

Follow-up advice:
I had a recruiter reach out via LinkedIn last week. They seemed pleased with an initial phone meet & greet, then set up interviews right away with two other stakeholders at the company on Thursday (4/7). The interviews went well and the recruiter said they would reach out to me on Friday (4/8) to follow-up, but I never heard from them. It’s now Monday (4/11). Is this maybe a bad sign? Regardless, when is it too soon or too late to reach out myself and ask for a follow up?

Question: I have a client who started a restaurant. He leased the land and bought shipping containers where he spent money contracting out to turn them into bars.

But nonresidential real estate at 27.5 years doesn’t make sense either as it’s not a brick and mortar building. Curious on others thoughts! TIA
