What To Avoid When Looking For Brooklyn Apartments For Rent

When it comes to ANY kind of real estate you have a few dozen options in front of you as far as how to find specific locations and amenities for your needs. Sure, you can go on Craigslist… But the disadvantages are numerous. You never know what you’re going to get, and you have to do all of the work on your own! Even if you narrow down results, you will still have to call every single place, make appointments, ask questions, etc. This isn't exactly the fastest route to take!

Another thing you could do is take a look at a website, of… let’s say… Lang Realty NY and talk to a real estate agent that will do all of this hard work for you. All you have to do is let us know exactly what you are looking for, and we can search through our databases and find a listing of places, send them through email and you can then take a look at these listings on your own time. Locations are very important. If you don't care where you live next, let us know! If you do care where you move to, then you should try to mention a specific location you are looking for. Hottest places right now? Prospect Park apartments or Park Slope rentals.

We know you are a busy individual, and since you are letting us do all of the dirty and somewhat stressful work for you, you can spend your time doing more important things -- like packing! If you have moved before, you know how much downtime it took to find the place you are at now. It's really just a frustrating experience to put all of this responsibility on your own shoulders. So, while we can’t pack your house or apartment for you, we can at least take away one frustrating aspect and help you find the apartment of your dreams - minus the stress!

Brooklyn Rentals and Tips On How To Get The Rental Best Options!

We've all been through the little "loopholes" that real estate brings to the table. Sometimes your Realtors really aren't as honest as they should be with you, nor are the owners of the buildings or homes. Some of the main things you need to look for when looking at Brooklyn rentals or Brooklyn apartments for rent is the quality of the building. I have heard some really horrific stories about tricks that Realtors pull on you, and frankly it could have been avoided if the renter simple asked a few key questions about the building or their specific apartment or rental.

One thing you absolutely need to ask is if there is an apartment repair man or if the landlord will fix any problems you may be having. If not, you will be paying for anything that goes wrong. Maybe the lever to the shower falls off accidentally. Or maybe the heater breaks in the middle of winter! These are things you should have filed under contract with your rental agreement. By the way, make sure you read your rental agreement all the way through! Secondly, you need to ask about deposits - when they are needed, how much they are and when you will get them back.

Some renters have to wait a week, while others have to wait anywhere from 3 months on up to six months to get their money back! Most people will use their return deposit to place a deposit on a new place when they move out - so it's important to know when you will get it back! While most Realtors are honest, once in awhile you will get one that is sneaky, dishonest or likes to play the "word play" game. Don't be fooled! Know your rights and read your rental agreement - it's not only for their safety, but yours as well!

A Word about Park Slope and Brooklyn Rentals

Last week we’ve talked about the wonders of Prospect Park and we decided to dedicate this blog post to its neighbor – the beautiful Park Slope neighborhood.

Park Slope is truly one of the prettiest places in town and one of the best neighborhoods, offering historic building and quiet streets, top-rated restaurants, amazing bars, lovely boutiques and hip shops and of course – a convenient accesses to Prospect Park and not only, but also BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music), The lovely Brooklyn Museum, and the Central Library of the Borough.

By the way, Park Slope was entitled as on of America’s ten best neighborhoods in 2006 by Natural Home Magazine. It was the parks, the greenery and the neighborly gathering places that boosted the reputation of Park Slope. Indeed it’s hard to compete with the weekly farmer’s market and the community gardens of the neighborhood.

Park Slope is yet to be infested by big chain stores, pharmacies and banks like the rest of New York City and the communal life are as exciting as it gets.

Live and Breath Prospect Park in a Lovely Brooklyn Apartment

Brooklyn is New York’s most populous borough and the most populous borough deserves to have the prettiest park in town. Unlike the touristy crowded Central Park, Prospect park belongs to the Brooklynites. This urban oasis spreads across 585 acres in the heart of Brooklyn, featuring a 90 acre meadow, 60 acre lake, and Brooklyn's best and only forest.

Not many people know that Prospect Park was designed by Fredrick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, the guys responsible for Central Park. The two engineers designed a park so revolutionary, that many people still consider Prospect Park to be a true work of art. Olmsted and Vaux wanted to recreate the pastoral notions that you can find in classical paintings of nature and quite frankly, they did a great job.

Although Central Park remains one of New York’s greatest attractions, the designers felt that Prospect Park was their great success.

In the park you can also find the Prospect Park Zoo that is a home to nearly 400 animals of more than 80 species and the lovely Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.

We know you have an itch towards Prospect Park and Brooklyn. So why won't you follow your heart? If you’re planning to move to Brooklyn, visit Lang Realty where you’ll find a knowledgeable group of Brooklyn experts, ready to listen to your personal preferences and requests and help you find the perfect Brooklyn apartment.

Boerum Hill Renting. Live in the Greenest Neighborhood in Brooklyn

Boerum Hill is one of the loveliest neighborhoods out there. You can’t really get more Brooklyn than that. Half of Boerum Hill’s blocks were announced at least once to be the greenest/prettiest streets in Brooklyn and the brownstones are truly amazing.

Boerum Hill streches from Smith Street to Third Ave and from Atlantic Ave to 5th St. You got the quiet little streets, the young families, the hip 20+ fanatic Brooklynites and the highest quality of life you can ask for.

When you are hungry or thirsty, there's the lively Smith St. around the corner with some of the city’s best restaurants and bars. The Brooklyn Academy of Music is only a few steps away and the entire neighborhood is located on literally every subway line that exists. The A,C,G,2,3,4,5,B,F,N & Q trains you name it and it’s in a walking distance. So if you ever want to go to the city, it takes about 5 minuets to get to Downtown and there’s also the Atlantic Terminal with the LIRR if you need to get to your family in Nassau county.

If you're into Boerum Hill renting, visit Lang Reality where you’ll find a knowledgeable group of Brooklyn experts, ready to listen to your personal preferences and requests and help you find the perfect Brooklyn apartment. Visit us at and turn your Brooklyn dream into realty.
