Freebies from New York City landlords are less generous now than were during the height of the pandemic now that there's more demand from returning renters. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still get a good deal if you can be a little flexible.

Right now you can find apartments with landlord-paid broker fees, a month or two of free rent, move-in bonuses, and even reduced security deposits. The key is not to get your heart set on a particular neighborhood or building, because the deals are only in some parts of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. And apartments are going fast, so come to showings with your documents in hand so you can apply on the spot. For more on how to find a deal now, listen to Brick’s latest podcast.
