Should you be open to a Bronx co-ed apartment-share we can schedule a viewing and see if we are a good fit. You are encouraged to keep reading if you require further information.

in·tro·duc·tion /ˌintrəˈdəkSH(ə)n/ Since 1999 I have spearheaded a community effort by providing affordable housing to students and entry-level professionals willing to consider housing outside of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. I am NOT an employee of the landlord, I am NOT a real estate person, NOR do I work on commission. I do however occupy the premises and volunteer my time facilitating communications and repairs within the property. I work full-time as a public servant in the engineering field and my time is limited (ergo, serious inquiries only). I am invested, professional and responsive and I ask for all potential renters to reciprocate in kind. I pride myself on being transparent, an innate problem-solver and a straight-shooter. Should you be financially, physically or mentally unstable I am NOT qualified to pursue a relationship with you much less one that yields a long-term communal housing situation. That said, I am overall a positive influence.

Actively seeking to establish and maintain a communal household comprised of driven individuals trying to educationally and/or professionally elevate themselves within the NYC metropolitan area. If you are opposed to occasionally sharing household meals, group activities, or are unable to comply with NYC Department of Sanitation's recycling ordinances then chances are we are NOT compatible. Recycling is of the upmost importance in this household so if you are into a green way of living, i.e. recycling beyond NYC ordinances, composting, sustainability efforts, healthy eating, up-cycling, etc., we NEED your camaraderie. Shared situations are not for everyone, however, we have been trying to provide a platform that can allot for a positive communal experience and promulgate success within the community. Our goal is to establish a household best described as driven, educated, preferably recently employed and/or actively enrolled in a vocational/higher education institution (i.e. undergrad/grad/trades school) but most importantly a stress-free environment.

ad·ver·tise·ment /ˈadvərˌtīzmənt/ Two (2) - housemate openings available in a furnished 2nd Floor, 4-Bdrm/1-Bath, apartment-share (asking $975/mo. and $1,075/mo. - co-ed household, single-occupancy only); and one (1) - housemate opening available in a furnished 1st Floor, 4-Bdrm/2-Bath Duplex (asking $1,575/mo. - couples welcomed). Rent includes:
i. Utilities (i.e. electricity, gas, heating, sewer, water, etc.);
ii. FiOS Wi-Fi and FiOS TV (sports channels and some premium channels, i.e. HBO, Showtime);
iii. Routine cleaning services and removal of general household refuse and recyclables from shared common areas;
iv. Routine mail distribution;
v. Access to gated outside sitting areas (front and side yards) and a designated BBQ area.

neigh·bor·hood /ˈnābərˌho͝od/ Despite being an up-and-coming area, the Bronx has not been able to rid itself of its bad reputation (acquired during the large exodus by the Jewish community in the 1970s). You are encouraged to research the surrounding area but if you are white, black, yellow, tangerine, etc. chances of you being a victim of a violent crime are slim (although Manhattan can catch you off-guard with its cramped overpriced quarters and susceptibility to random acts of terrorism/aging infrastructure failures). North of Yankee Stadium, nestled within a hilly enclave of Art Deco apartment complexes, Tudor and Victorian homes, Morrisania is an affordable NYC corridor with a quiet community-oriented vibe. With plenty of places to connect with neighbors, there are multiple weekly green markets, a handful of dance and yoga studios, as well as friendly bodegas, hair salons and delis. The recently reopened historic High Bridge, which connects Washington Heights and the Highbridge neighborhood in the Bronx, offers an easy pedestrian and bicycle route to upper Manhattan. In addition, the new Harlem River Greenway, along 20 acres of the Harlem River waterfront, has waterfront parkland that connects pedestrian walk ways, bicycling access, and jogging trails which really has given this area a long needed facelift and restored the community's historic access to the waterfront.

spe·cif·ics /spəˈsifiks/ Located in the Morrisania section of the South Bronx between E. 168th St. and E. 169th St. on College Avenue, walking distance from Bronx-Lebanon Hospital, The Bronx Museum of the Arts and Yankee Stadium. Premise is smoke-free (i.e. cigars, cigarettes, 420, etc. NOT allowed) | LGBTQ friendly | Steps from bus lines: Bx11, Bx32, Bx35 and Bx41 | 10 minute walk from additional bus lines: Bx1, Bx2, Bx15, Bx18 and BxM4; and subway lines: B, D and 4 | MetroNorth Station less than half a mile away | I-87 Major Deegan Expressway and I-95 Cross Bronx Expressway nearby. Location has a 97 Walk Score / 92 Transit Score / 74 Bike Score.

Located on a quiet tree-lined street, predominantly populated w/2- and 3-family homes with a cluster of rent-stabilized apartment buildings at its core. Our biggest short-coming is the lack of venues for take-out/dining-in. Although, Hungry Bird (a quaint neighborhood restaurant serving Indian cuisine) and Justine's (another neighboring restaurant serving Dominican cuisine) are within walking distance. More importantly, delivery for your avid Grubhub and Seamless user is available.

Units are equipped with LED lighting | Energy efficient appliances | Low-flow water fixtures | Tub-less bathrooms (with stand-alone sinks) | Hardwood floors throughout | Compact laundry rooms with professional grade coin-metered HE front loading appliances | Small, efficient alleyway kitchens (most cleaning household staples i.e. sponges, laundry detergent, toilet paper, etc. provided at no additional cost) | Eat-in kitchens equipped with seating for 4+

2nd Floor, 4-Bdrm/1-Bath (1,250 SF)
Bdrm 2 (Front Bedroom) | ~105 SF | Five (5) windows | Furnished with a desk, small LED Smart TV, twin size platform bed with 6" memory foam mattress, linens/bedding, and other furnishings | Asking $975/mo. (Income Requirements: $32,175 - $39,000 (minimum annual salary); Maximum move-in costs for this room is $2,925) | Available 02/2019

Bdrm 3 (Rear Bedroom) | ~140 SF | Two (2) windows | Furnished with a desk, small LED Smart TV, one (1) - six drawer chest, full size platform bed with mattress, linens/bedding, and other furnishings | Asking $1,075/mo. (Income Requirements: $35,475 - $43,000 (minimum annual salary); Maximum move-in costs for this room is $3,225) | Available 02/2019

If you are seeking double-occupancy for you and a partner (or minor) unfortunately we are unable to accommodate you for the vacancies listed for the 2nd Floor unit. Double-occupancy (e.g. couples) places too much of a burden/hardship on the shared household resources. For this reason, we are only considering single-occupancy of the furnished bedrooms in the 2nd Floor unit (meaning no more than 4 flatmates during tenancy).

1st Floor, 4-Bdrm/2-Bath Duplex (1,900 SF)
Bdrm 2 (Front Bedroom) | ~144 SF | Two (2) windows | Furnished with a desk, small LED Smart TV, queen size storage platform bed with a pillow-top mattress, linens/bedding, and other furnishings | Asking $1,575/mo. (Income Requirements: $51,975 - $63,000 (minimum annual salary); Maximum move-in costs for this room is $4,725) | Available 02/2019

First and last month's rent, plus one (1) - month security deposit for all listed vacancies are required and non-negotiable (rent is prorated so you only pay for the days you actually have access to the property). Credit, housing and criminal background check required for all prospective tenants (there is a one-time, non-refundable, application fee associated with the background check).

dis·clo·sure / disˈklōZHər/ You will need to schedule a viewing to get the ball rolling. Definitely NOT just looking for warm bodies. You are expected to visit the premises and meet the household to assess if we are a good fit (bring a friend since you are headed to a stranger's home after all). Once we meet and iron out any concerns we can migrate to the next step: the application process.

There isn't a fee for viewing the premises. However, during the viewing and contingent on our compatibility, interested applicants are encouraged to complete a lease application. There is a $75.00 application fee per applicant, of which $36.98 is payable via credit card to E-Renter.com. You can apply for any of the vacancies during the same application process (the application fee is a one-time charge). Submissions of incomplete lease applications will NOT be considered. During the application process the room you are interested in will be removed from the market and placed on hold (for a maximum of 48 hours). However, if your annual salary is NOT equal to or greater than 33x-40x one month's rent then hold on to both your cash and personal information.

Upon successful completion of the application process, a move-in date is set at which time the 1st and last month's rent plus one (1) - month security deposit will be required (move-in dates must be established within five (5) calendar days after completion of the application process).

To be considered a potential candidate:
a. Your annual salary should be at minimum 33x the desired monthly rent for actively enrolled undergraduate/graduate/vocational students or 40x the desired monthly rent for entry-level professionals;
b. Your FICO credit score should be above 670 (exceptions at landlord's discretion, no credit history permissible);
c. Be ready and willing to discuss who you are and why you think you may be a good fit (such as: What you do for a living | If you are a smoker (e.g. cigarettes, marijuana, hookah) | Your current living situation | Why you are looking to change it | How soon that change is foreseen | Your take on overnight guests, overnight dishes, cooking, cleanliness, sharing and boundaries).

con·clu·sion /kənˈklo͞oZHən/ To be considered a potential candidate you MUST be considerate | clean | smoke-free | ethical | independent | laid-back | resourceful
