No finder’s fees for the win
Not paying a broker’s fee, also known as a finder’s fee is a rare occurrence. Most places in New York City require you to pay a realtor some kind of fee, even if they do absolutely nothing. That is the way the system works in most cases. And that can amount to hundreds, sometimes thousands of hard-earned dollars.
It was, therefore, surprising to one former Atlanta resident to find that he would not have to pay a broker fee for his new East Williamsburg apartment. He noted, the key to his success was not getting stuck on living in Manhattan.
