Share this Article

When it comes to New York City real estate, if a listing sounds too good to be true, it probably is.  Rental search site RentHop attempts to separate fact from fiction by assigning a HopScore (a ranking of listings by quality) to each of their listings to help you weed out the meh apartments and zero in more efficiently on the perfect place. This week’s round-up includes a no-fee furnished studio, a charming carriage house one-bedroom and an ideal two-bedroom share, but beware, the higher the HopScore, the better the listing and the faster the apartment is likely to be rented. So if you see something that piques your interest, don’t delay.
