BrickUnderground's Holiday Week brings you lots of fresh stories on navigating the real estate world this time of year, but this isn't the first time we've explored buying, selling, renting, decorating and surviving the holidays. Below, some treasures from our story vault:
It's a good time to find bargain rents, relatively speaking; lower demand in the winter means landlords drop the rent or offer sweeteners like a free month or gratis broker's fee.
Curiously, wintertime in New York City is known as "heat season," a time when landlords must ensure your apartment reaches a certain temperature. Read up on everything you need to know.
On the other hand, if you're overheated (and many NYC apartments are positively balmy in the winter), consider installing a device on your radiator that allows you to regulate the temp.
