– in November, my 3rd
2-yr lease agreement will expire
and I’m still deliberating what to do. I absolutely LOVE
my apt and have been in the same Midtown zip for quite some time now…
I keep reading about these apt negotiations bw landlords/mgmt & tenants
due to the recession. Not sure if we’ll still be in full recession-mode by Nov (Dow closed @ 9,398!)
, so should I even try
to negotiate my renewal to exclude the 4.5-8.5% lease increase?
And speaking of rent – instead of shelling out wasted $$$ to the man, I’m thinking maybe it’s time I own. NYC apt prices are still high, but def not as high as they were in the last 2 yrs, or even in Jan ’09. Mom was willing to help me get one a few yrs back but, in all honestly, I held off thinking ‘If I’m with someone, would I need to sell this and get a new place?’.
I know, it was sooo ridiculous to think of “what if’s“ and hypothetical situations but I couldn’t help it…I just did. (I have since then gotten much wiser, thank god)
Speaking of Apartments – here is some concrete eye candy of a recent apt listing in the NYTimes:
Anywho, I want to OWN my own digs. And I want to do so BADLY.
Have a wonderful wknd dahlings,
