For anyone who has recently rented an apartment in Manhattan, were the rates advertised on Streeteasy or the building’s own website firm, or were you able to negotiate an additional discount? For example, if the gross is $3700, and with free months the advertised net is $3,000, would you assume you could get the net down to $2800-$2900? What is the going rate for a large 1-bedroom or junior 4 in a Midtown doorman building now?

Didn’t get anymore off the rent beyond the advertised free months, but got the amenity fee waived and free cable. This was in September. It is coming out to cost same or maybe a little less than what I paid for the unit in 2018-2019. I have also heard of people getting large gift cards as an additional incentive.

Most luxury buildings have internal offices to handle showings/renting. Most aren’t negotiable. I live in a luxury building, nice sized 1BR, midtown west/near Hudson Yards, $3550/mo., amenities are an additional $750/year. However, for buildings that are smaller in size, negotiate tf out of them. But, bear in mind that rents are low and other people quickly jump. So, if you found your dream place, try and negotiate, but, if unsuccessful, jump on it because it will likely be gone soon. Of course you can likely find much better deals, if you’re willing to consider less desirable neighborhoods (Kipps Bay/Murray Hill/LES). To be clear, nothing against those neighborhoods, but feel like Murray Hill/Kipps Bay can feel like a college campus sometimes. Best of luck searching!

Early 2019! So right at the cusp. There are units of similar size a number of floors above me for about the same price/$100-200 cheaper!

Signed during pandemic but last year. They were offering 1 month free but we also managed to negotiate the gross rent by around 6% which was around $350 on top of the free month. Any negotiation is good.

These days. You can expect event 4 months free. Super luxury buildings would not likely negotiate on gross rent though.

Thanks, very helpful!

You pay gross or close to gross. So you may be paying $3500.

They’re advertising that you pay $3,000 net- are you saying you’d get the free months off a lower gross?
