Most companies offer fake 2 or 3 bedrooms in order to create affordability. If you are looking for a luxury unit you must ask if the apartment is a converted unit.
Most converted units only have 1 bathroom or not may windows. There is nothing wrong with a budget, but it is important to know a budget comes with specific restrictions. If you are looking for an apartment that is a true 2 bed or 3 bed, pricing will be higher. This apartments in good neighborhoods rent unfurnished for around 7,000 to 20,000 a month, excluding a broker’s fees.
So when you see one of these apartments and you think they are a lot of money, you need to take into consideration the real estate costs in NYC. Also, high rents during high season happen as often time these beautiful luxurious apartments go unrented.
It is difficult to come by apartments that rent for less then 6 months to a year even when furnished.

We love what we do because of clients like John Wattiker and Malcom Cafare. We cannot thank them enough for the beautiful testimonial that they wrote about their experience with abcstay.
I was lucky enough to find an immediate home-away-from-home at abctay while I was undergoing a large renovation on my nearby apartment. As Greenwich village natives, we searched deep and wide for the best short-term living solution in the immediate area. Sure enough we happened upon a gorgeous apartment, fully equipped and outfitted with all everything we needed for a temporary living space to become home – a rarity in uber-exclusive downtown Manhattan.
From the moment we moved in, the staff at abcstay made us feel welcome like we had always been a part of the building’s community. No task was too big or small and we quickly found ourselves falling in love with the neighborhood, our block and the rich tapestry that is Greenwich Village all over again. The unique location of our abcstay apartment is convenient to both uptown and downtown professional commutes. The property also boasts easy and immediate access to lower Manhattan’s best restaurants, nightlife and cultural experiences.
Whether you are re-locating to New York and need an upscale, temporary, fully furnished apartment to make you feel at home during your transition or from only a few blocks away, abcstay offers the ease, comfort and ultimate satisfaction of the home you’ve always dreamed of.
The New York City furnished market is a zoo. At abcstay we make it easy for you to feel at home. Most apartments are furnished with lower end furniture that lacks comfort and style.

Things to watch out for in the furnished world:
Stay away from renting apartments from un-verified web sites
Any decent studio apartment goes from 3100 to 4500 in Manhanttan. You need to figure renting furniture that is not that attractive will more or less cost you around another 700 a month and that is if you stay for longer than a month.
This means you should expect a 40 to 50 % increase when renting a furnished rentals depending on demand of the rental and quality of the apartment. Comparing prices when you do not take into consideration location can seem incongruous.
Keep in mind that life in New York is more convenient and safe when neighborhoods are closer to transportation. You save money in travel and have a more convenient life-style.
At abcstay we choose apartments that have great options for supermarkets, transportation and because of this they are priced higher. Don’t be fooled by good sales tactics. Look at the map and decide what is the right apartment for you.
