The StreetEasy Hot Dozen: 12 rentals that may or may not be available by the time you read this
A family or trio of roommates looking for an affordable 3-bedroom rental should quickly click on this link to check out a very hot Upper West Side listing. The West 81st Street apartment made it into the Hot Dozen (a weekly roundup of the most clicked studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment listings on StreetEasy.com) after being on the market just seven days.
Located on a low floor in a pet-friendly walk-up building, the apartment has three proper bedrooms, exposed brick in the living room and a kitchen with a nice big slab of counter space and a dishwasher. Not bad for $3,500/month.
The thing is, its landlords are figuring out how hot the space is and have already boosted their asking price by $275. Wait any longer and they might do it again. The same risk applies to the other listings, which range from loft-like Tribeca pads to downtown studios.
Get browsing, and if the apartment you like requires a guarantor that you don't have, check the listing (or ask) to see if the landlord accepts Insurent, an easy solution from one of BrickUnderground's sponsors.
