What you've heard is true: most NYC rentals do come with a broker's fee. But 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 Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, at  a range of prices. You can also search Naked Apartments by “no fee” or “low fee” to see more.

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