Even if you can afford to pay a broker fee on your new NYC pad, do you really want to shell out 12-15% of a year’s rent to an agent when you can instead put your hard-earned cash toward that dream vacation in Bali?

Probably not. So why not aim for a no-fee or low-fee place (one with broker’s fees less than 9% of the annual rent) like the ones you can find listed here in our Low-Fee Rental Roundup or by clicking the “no-fee” and "low fee" search boxes at apartment search site Naked Apartments?

Have time to check out one of these places this very afternoon? Naked Apartments will make sure a broker is on hand to give you a tour with its new Showings on Demand feature.
