Two of my roommates are moving out. This means that unless the roommate and I can find someone who will pay an absurd amount per month (to live in a giant room with its own bathroom, any takers?), we have to move.
To this end, I have started the soul-sucking process of apartment hunting. Not only am I emailing no-fee brokers from Craigslist, but I also have a spreadsheet of those management companies that have properties on the UWS, prices, bedrooms, websites, and more. I am slightly obsessive.
To be fair, the roommate and I have already looked at one place. A 5th-floor walkup, for a "two" bedroom (one was closer to a closet) with teeny kitchen and no living space. For lots of money.
I also had this exchange with a broker:
Annie to [redacted]
Subject: $2550 / 2br - NEW!!! Real 2 Bedroom West 80s. I have keys, showing today!!! (Upper West Side)
When can I see this?
[redacted] to Annie

Next year, it has already been rented.

SERIOUSLY? Who says stuff like that? Figures that he'd have a blackberry.
