If you live in Midtown, don’t miss out on: The Gypsy Poet: When can you ever go wrong with wood-fired pizza? At the Gypsy Poet, you can opt for a classic like pepperoni and top it off with hot honey, or sink your teeth into something different like the Dream Catcher pizza with homemade tomato sauce, truffle oil, goat cheese, arugula, and the works. Plus, it’s a great spot to meet up with friends who share a mutual love for music and poetry. Attend an open mic night or listen in for intimate readings by local poets. The Ensemble Theatre: Catch a show on a Friday night at the historical Ensemble Theatre. Born in 1976 from George Hawkins’ dream to address the misrepresentation of black actors in theater, this show-stopping venue encourages diversity and strives to provide a diverse array of roles for black artists to perform.
Renters tip: The owner of the property matters as much as the place itself. Research your potential management company or landlord to see if there are complaints about them online. Search public records to see if there have been any housing violations at the property, and take that info seriously! It doesn’t matter how cute the place is if you have a nightmare landlord who will refuse to fix a collapsing roof or address a bug infestation (both situations I had to deal with in my NYC apartment as a first-time renter).
Sure, interest rates are low right now—which can help with affordability. Just be careful not to let that pressure you into buying a house when you aren’t really ready. A super low interest rate on a house you can’t afford is still a bad deal. So remember to stick to our advice on monthly payment limit, down payment amount and mortgage type (see Trend #2) and you’ll be in great shape! If interest rates stay low, buyers will be more motivated to buy your home sooner than later. But if interest rates do start to increase later in the year, just plan for your house to be on the market a little longer. If you don’t plan on moving anytime soon, you might still be able to take advantage of these super low interest rates and shorten your payment schedule by refinancing your mortgage.

Inspect the property again. Once the lease is finalized and agreed upon by both the landlord and tenant, you can request to see the property again. When you’re at the property, take photos and document any form of damage you see. If you see small holes in the walls caused by a wall-mounted television screen, take a photo and inform the landlord in writing. Your landlord may or may not fix the damage before you move in. However it’s important to inform the landlord prior to moving into home, otherwise the landlord may accuse you of the damage and take money from your deposit to repair it.
