No-fee rentals surge in Manhattan and Brooklyn

first_imgShare via Shortlink TagsbrooklynManhattanNYC BrokersRental Market No-fee listings in Manhattan and Brooklyn are increasing, as the city sees an exodus of residents. (iStock)Brokers fumed over guidance earlier this year which temporarily put apartment fees in limbo, but now the share of no-fee rentals are surging.No-fee listings made up 75 to 85 percent of all listings in Manhattan and Brooklyn in August, the New York Times reported, up from 25 percent of listings in January. The analysis was conducted by TextLuke.com, an AI-based service that helps consumers find apartments.The greater share of no-fee listings comes as Manhattan has seen three straight months of record vacancy, meaning landlords may be willing to cut a deal in order to get an apartment rented.Read moreManhattan vacancy hits new peak; Brooklyn stableBroker-fee ban lawsuit postponed until October Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink In Brooklyn, the trendy neighborhoods of Red Hook, Park Slope, Crown Heights and Bushwick also saw more no-fee listings. The share of no-fee apartments grew in those areas to 80 percent in August from 58 percent in January.A Douglas Elliman report found that in July, Manhattan saw the largest annual rent decline in nine years — and that was accompanied with landlords increasing concessions. That month, nearly half of all new leases included freebies for renters, up from 30 percent 12 months earlier. Concessions in Brooklyn remained stable.Broker fees are typically 15 percent of an apartment’s annual rent, and the cost is covered by the tenant. New York’s Department of State issued guidance in January seeking to turn that practice on its head by transferring the fees to landlords. The announcement shook the real estate industry, but the upheaval was short lived: The industry obtained a restraining order from a New York judge to temporarily block the broker-fee ban.The court date for the real estate industry’s challenge of the interpretation is scheduled for October.[NYT] — Georgia Kromreilast_img read more


The French re-connection

first_imgControl of the European Economic and Social Committee is being returned where it belongs – to the hands of the French. The EESC, which was modelled in 1957 on a French institution, met this week (17-18 April) to elect as its new president a Frenchman, Henri Malosse, who has been a member of the EESC since 1995, latterly as head of the employers’ group. He has the dubious distinction of having co-authored a book with Edith Cresson, on the subject of doing business with the European Union (her expertise in this field brought down the Santer Commission). Malosse is expected to make more waves than his predecessor, Staffan Nilsson, and is bringing in an outsider to head his private office, Rudy Aernoudt. The appointment makes a curious progression for the 50-year-old Belgian, who has already headed private offices in the Walloon, Flemish and Belgian federal governments. He headed the private office of Serge Kubla, a Walloon liberal who was minister of the economy for the Walloon region, then headed the private office of Fientje Moerman, a Flemish liberal (sometime spokeswoman for the liberals in the European Parliament) who was minister of the economy first in the Belgian federal government (2003-04), then in the Flemish regional government (2004-07). She resigned from that post because of criticism from the Flemish ombudsman following a complaint by Aernoudt over the awarding of a contract. He said at the time that auditors should be given greater access to private offices. Malosse will have taken note.last_img read more
