Just because a lot of NYC rentals come with broker's fees doesn't mean you have to pay full price. Apartment search site Naked Apartments has no-fee and low-fee options with fees that top out at 9 percent (as opposed to the usual 12 to 15 percent). We've rounded up current finds in all five boroughs and in a variety of price ranges. You can also search Naked Apartments by “no fee” or “low fee” to see more.

And if you see a place you like, Naked Apartments will make sure an agent’s there to greet you whenever you want to see it with its Showings on Demand feature.
