Getting an apartment in New York City can feel like trying to get an invitation to Bungalow 8. It's all about who you know (and how much money is in your bank account or, rather, trust fund). The good folks at Rent-Direct.com don't think it should be like this. Now in their 10th year of serving the NYC metro area, Rent-Direct.com has more than 200,000 happy renters who can attest that they didn't have to wait behind any velvet ropes or be on any special list to get their perfect apartment. Rent-Direct.com offers a no-broker fee service for apartment with rents ranging from $700 to $7,000.

Sure, there are lots of apartment web sites. Why is this one different? Rent-Direct.com is not just a place to pour over page after page of listings that don't match your criteria. Rent-DirectAdvisors give customized attention to each subscriber, providing them with answers on everything from NYC apartment finding strategies, to neighborhood information, to landlord negotiation tips. Rent-Direct has even helped renters with difficult situations like credit issues, pets, no rental history, students and out-of-towners. They also keep their members in the loop with daily email alerts informing members of the latest apartments on the market (so you get first dibs), rent reductions, landlord incentives and open houses. What's the catch? Well, there is a fee ($195) but it's a one-time fee that allows registered users open access to a database of up-to-the-minute rental listings from 3,000 landlords and 2,900 properties in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and parts of northern New Jersey, usually before they hit the newspapers.
