The city is back and open for business. Pure supply and demand. Best time was to lock rent in for 2 years during the March/April time

There is absolutely not an inventory shortage. They are playing you.

@SA1, I definitely agree that it’s building to building dependent, that being said, within Manhattan, assuming their gross rent isn’t massively over market, 5 months on 24 is an absolute bargain bin deal, I don’t know the BK scene at all

There isn't an inventory shortage, they just want you to think that by listing maybe 1 unit per building.

“Shortage”? No

How do we get around the “shortage” then? Hire a broker? Walk into buildings and ask about units?

Can you Airbnb for a while and sign an apartment later this year (fall) or early next year?

Secret sauce is to find the buildings that pay for the brokers. That way the fee is covered- but yes cold calling some and negotiating can work

Obviously not everywhere. Tbh probs not gonna work in prime Manhattan locations

Is it normal for an agent to ask for my financials before a sales contract is signed with the seller? For context, this co-op apt has been on the market for about a year. Seller had two previous buyers that were rejected by the board. From what I was told, the board was not unreasonable. But the seller (and the agent) wants to make sure I was qualifiable, I suppose, which is why they asked. From my POV, I'm giving up a lot of sensitive info when there's nothing binding. Seems out of order.
