We keep hearing about this bonanza of cheap rents
the New Depression is supposed to bring. Here's Real Estate Bisnow
reporting that "Tenants are now catching a break in New York... Expect more space, cheaper rents and greater concessions." They advise brokers to "expand your platform with integrated services" -- maybe they'll start bringing us fruit baskets. Tenants are advised to "negotiate harder." You can practice on this realtor
, offering an East Village 1BR for $3000 (its integrated services include an onsite laundry room), or this one
, with a "perfect live/work space" in Greenpoint, convenient to all industrial seepage
. Happy bargain hunting!
