Skip the brokers. Download the StreetEasy app - an NYC-only real estate app.

Filter by no fee and you'll find a lot. I do recommend you either know where you want to live or have time to check out a couple of neighborhoods to get the vibes of the place.

Not really. I worked with a couple who just showed me listings already on Streeteasy. They can be helpful for coordinating with buildings and setting up showings and sorting all the paperwork. They do have access to apts that might not even be listed online though so that’s a plus.

My maternity leave will be over in couple weeks and I will be working from home with our daughter until the end of this year. We’ve decided not to send her to daycare this year due to COVID. Husband will go to work early and come home by lunch time to WFH and help take care of her. I’m having a lot of anxiety thinking how we will manage WFH with 4mo! Please share your experience and advice. We are open to part time nanny but this COVID thing is making us really concerned. Thanks in advance.

Is it a bad idea to apply as a fresher in some other service based company, especially when you're nearing two years of experience in your current organization, but you're unhappy with the technology?

Hi Fishes, I'm working in SAP Basis and I'm not happy with this domain as the night shifts are causing problems with my health and the work environment isn't good enough and I feel I won't thrive in the long run, I tried applying as a fresher in another company and they seem to be interested.
