If you’re traveling to New York City for work, paying hotel rates might not be too appealing, especially if you stay for more than 1-to 2 nights.

There are many ways to find a great room for rent in NYC that suits your needs and doesn’t break the bank. Scroll down and check out these 5 things you need to consider when looking for rooms for rent in New York City before you begin your search.

  1. How Long Do You Need to Stay in NYC

The timeline of your stay in NYC can influence your choices in accommodation, especially if you don’t want to spend too much money on it. For instance, if you’re staying just under a week, much affordable bed and breakfast venues provide comfort, convenience, and affordable rates. 

If your stay in NYC is more extended than that, you might need to look for more long-term accommodation options.

  1. Your Budget

It’s best to crunch the numbers and see how much you can comfortably spend on New York City accommodation for your work trip. This will help you refine your search and help you find a room for rent in NYC faster.

  1. Amenities You Need

Even if temporary, you may still have some pressing needs that are non-negotiable, such as internet, access to a kitchen and laundry, and even access to grocery stores. This depends on your specific needs, but it’s worth writing all of them down to ensure you find a room for rent in NYC that you can truly feel comfortable living in for a while. 

  1. Reliability 

Whether it’s a landlord, your new roommates, or the company renting out the room, reliability is non-negotiable. After all, it would help if you felt perfectly safe and comfortable while living in the room, and unfortunately, real estate marketing in NYC is not free from scammers.

It can help refine your search on online sites that can have reviews from other people to know the type of company or landlord you’re working with.

  1. Broker Fees

Be mindful that in some cases, even if you’re renting out one room, if you work with a broker to find a place to stay, you will be charged a fee. The rates can differ tremendously but know that brokers will often place ads on sites themselves, so even if you’ve searched yourself, you could still pay a broker fee just because you’ve stumbled on one of their listings.
