What They Don’t Tell You About Apartment Hopping In NYC

New Yorkers have a habit of becoming apartment hoppers. Sometimes, it’s because they can’t afford the rent. Other times it’s because they had a bad roommate. Whatever the reason may be, it’s a common trend. But it’s not an easy trend to follow. Jumping between apartments has it’s challenges, especially in a crazy city like New York.

Heavy Furniture And Lots Of Stairs

Many New York City apartments don’t have elevators. These buildings are small (maybe 4 flights tops), but furniture isn’t easy to carry up and down the stairs. It’s an all-day chore that can’t be done alone. You’ll need some volunteers to help you through it. There’s always the option of hiring a moving service, but that can take a hit on your wallet. Hopefully you’ve got a friend in town with a pickup truck!

Or… you can rent a Bedly! Bedly apartments come fully furnished. Each unit has a common space, which renters share. The common space can look different in every building. It all depends on your personal preferences and style. Most of the common rooms have a couch, coffee table, and rug. There is also a table and chairs set up for dining. The common space is also decorated with hand picked artwork on the walls.

There are multiple bedrooms in each unit. Many units have 4 bedrooms, but some may have more or less (depending on the size of the space). There’s a bed in every bedroom, along with a bedside table and lamp. Some units also come with a closet – bonus!

Make your move easier by skipping the heaving lifting. Rent out a Bedly apartment that feels like home as soon as you walk in the door!

Dangerously High Broker Fees

Everyone knows that New York City is an expensive place to the live. Many apartments run between $2,000-$4,000 per month. Throw a nasty broker fee into the mix and all of a sudden your credit score drops to the floor. You want to get a more affordable place to stay, but you signed a yearly contract and have to wait until next June. You start to wish you had rented out a Bedly from the beginning.

Bedly apartments are available to rent on a monthly basis. You can stay for as little or as long as you’d like. No contracts to hold you back!
