Rents Going Up

Rents Going Up

Rents are going up, but brokers insist that negotiations are still possible, even in a competitive market.

Call your landlord at least three months before the lease expires and ask whether the rent will be going up. This will give you time to negotiate and consider your options.

Here are some tips from the experts.

Playing To Your Strengths

Playing To Your Strengths

Vacancies cost landlords money — they lose rent while they clean, paint, repair and show the apartment. And they may have to pay the broker’s fee, too. A new tenant might be noisy or not pay on time. Point out these risks, and ask for a compromise.

Perhaps you could shave $100 a month off the increase. Or, find other ways to save. Ask for an 18-month or 24-month lease to lock in the terms for longer. If you pay a pet or amenity fee, perhaps the landlord might waive one.

Do Your Homework

Do Your Homework

Do your research on rentals in the building, on the block and in the neighborhood to make sure the renewal price your landlord is offering is fair and in line with the current market. Leverage that data in conversations with your landlord.

Moving is not cheap. Calculate how much it will cost you to move, factoring in a moving van, a broker fee and other associated costs. Then calculate the increase over the course of the year and decide whether or not you’ll come out ahead if you stay or if you go.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
