This week our readers were drawn to stories on navigating the often confusing worlds of rent-stabilized and affordable housing, with three stories on rent regulation and a housing lottery making our most-read list. Also of interest was a Brooklyn neighborhood face-off.

Here, in full, are our five most-read stories of the past week: 

1) Apply for a chance to buy a house in East New York for less than $200,000

2) Attention rent-stabilized tenants: If your landlord changes the front lock to a key fob system, she can track you

3) Squalor on parade: A selection of bad real estate listing photos sure to bum you out

4) Park Slope vs. Windsor Terrace: Which neighborhood is for you?

5) Ask Sam: An LLC bought my building and issued me a new rent-stabilized lease. Is this legit? (sponsored)
