NestApple Has Created a New and Interesting Way to Win at Getting an Apartment in NYC

After being in NYC since 2001, one thing that does not seem to change is the way to buy or rent an apartment.  The Big Apple still remains one of the toughest cities to live and land a decent place to live.  What are newcomers to the city or event people that live here to do to get through this because the bottom line is that we all need a place to live?  
NestApple was born on the principle that technology greatly diminished the role of full-service real estate brokerage firms by making it easy to search for homes.

Its founders have been outraged by the high fees that traditional firms still charge. NestApple is an efficient platform which helps clients from placing the bid to dealing with the paperwork. We represent buyers (and tenants) and charge 1% instead of the regular 3% while providing the same level of service. During our own search for real estate,  we stumbled upon the concept of "commission rebates", which is legal in 40 of the 50 States, and in fact, has been publicly encouraged by New York's A.G.

NestApple also believes in the corporate responsibility of entrepreneurs and that business should play a role in social innovation and engage the local community, therefore we make a donation to a local charity every time a deal closes.

How it works? Get paid by your broker.  

•   Select NestApple as your broker when you visit the unit
•   15% of the annual rent (i.e. 2 month's rent) typically split between the 2 brokers
•   We will pay you back 2/3 of our fee
•   If you apply on your own, the listing agent gets the full 15% you pay him

NestApple reduces the broker fee of ANY listing. For example: for no-fee listings, you get paid 66% of a month's rent when signing a lease.

The goal of the company is to help buyers and renters in places like NYC have a more pleasant and profitable experience when looking for a place to live.  For more information on NestApple, check out the website, or stay in touch with the company via social media on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google Plus, LinkedIn, and YouTube.
