This week, readers visited Brick Underground to check out our closing costs guide. Some big taxes and fees are unique to New York, and they can take a chunk out of a seller's proceeds and impact a buyer's decision on what apartment to buy.
Staff writer Austin Havens-Bowen covers the rental market and answers renters' questions in a column called Realty Bites. He previously reported on local news for the Queens Ledger and The Hunts Point Express in the Bronx. He graduated from Hunter College with a BA in media studies.
Brick Underground articles occasionally include the expertise of, or information about, advertising partners when relevant to the story. We will never promote an advertiser's product without making the relationship clear to our readers.
