Everyone complains about their first apartment in the city. It's too tiny, too many bugs, terrible roommates, the stove bursts into flame every time you turn it on, etc...
What's even more stressful is when you take the step up from renting to actually buying a home in New York City. What if you end up with the same roach-motel ridden apartment you were renting just a few years ago?
Thanks to Curbed, and a study done by StreetEasy, there's now a list of some of the best starter homes in NYC for those who are looking to settle down and buy their first big-kid, "Look, Ma, I Made It!" apartment.
Of course, we understand that buying an apartment in NYC is, all things considered, sort of a luxury.
It has to be the right situation, the right neighborhood, the right price - everything has to go right in order for it to be even worth it.
Most of us ain't got it like that just yet, so in the meantime, we're keeping our options open. In most cases that means we're not living alone.
But how do you find the perfect roommate in a city chock-full of bad ones? On your own? For free? Not gon' be able to do it! That's why there's Roomi!
Roomi’s the free app that helps you find a roommate in the safest, most secure way possible. With Roomi you don’t run into robots or spam listings from a Nigerian homeowner who, out of the goodness of his own heart, is renting a 3-bedroom loft for $800/month.
Roomi knows how stressful finding a housemate who’s not a sketchball is.
That’s why their listing team is dedicated to sussing out the spam and the fake posts so you don’t wind up living in some kind of crazy sex kitchen (not quite sure what that is, but it’s not something we want to be a part of).
Download the Roomi app right here and find the reasonable roommate you’ve been longing for today. For free!
