Looking for an apartment in NYC and the broker asked me what’s your income and I told them $140k.

They said your income is not the best 😂….i immediately thought oh is it because im black

Get another broker! Likely he will show you the least enticing units too.


Are you looking at stuff that could easily be above $3.5k? Because that’s the upper bound that your income would support with the 40x requirement. No lie, I got some joy out of telling my yt brokers that my income is 400+


3.5k was my stopping point. I believe this apartment was around 2.8k upper East


Oh, did you ask them what they meant by best? Do it and tell us their reaction. 😂


2.8k and they said its not the best!? Wtf? Im in boston and thats seems very reasonable


I just went and checked it’s 2.6k for the apartment


If you’re looking in Brooklyn I can send you the broker I worked with. DM if interested
