Standout Reasons to Rent

Renting may be more advantageous depending on your priorities and needs. If you’re waiting to build the capital needed to make a down payment on a home or your credit history needs strengthening to obtain a mortgage, rentals are an ideal way to live in the neighborhood of your dreams. For those with busy lifestyles, renting can free up a considerable amount of time that, for homeowners, would be devoted to maintaining and up-keep of a home and property. If you live a more transient lifestyle, that doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice comfort. Renting satisfies an immediate need to have a place to live without being tied down by a longterm commitment. Perhaps you are unsure about your career’s demands, or have immediate expenses to pay off. Maybe you’re exploring a specific area to decide upon a particular lifestyle before settling permanently. In these cases, renting is a stress-free and smart solution.

East Egg understands that rental situations are unique. Our full-time staff handles luxury, short term, seasonal or yearly rental properties throughout Manhattan and Long Island and can manage or secure the ideal rental property for you.

Rental Tips

  • Prioritize your requirements. Work with your East Egg agent to determine what is important in your new home. Three items you should consider - size, location and price. Other items to consider, are necessary amenities, schools, etc.
  • Budget. What is your financial situation? It's important to know your budget - you’ll save time and energy.
  • Timing. Start your search 30-90 days ahead of time. If you search too soon or too late, then you may not see the best available inventory. Additionally, if you are shopping for a co-op rental, the timeline can be 30-45 days.
  • Be Prepared. If you find a place you like, it’s best to have all of your documents ready and be financially prepared to put a deposit down immediately. This will guarantee that you don't lose the residence.

Other Reminders 

Moving Costs & Salary Requirements

Most commonly, to be approved for a rental, you’ll be expected by many landlords to make 40 to 50 times the monthly rent and go through a credit and background check. If your annual salary does not meet that requirement, then it may be possible to explore a guarantor or combine salaries of roommates and/or partners. Many landlords require that a guarantor typically make 80 to 100 times the required monthly rent. Reach out to an East Egg agent today for further assistance with your rental.
