The problem of Manhattan’s inventory shortage has become a major hurdle, even though they are willing to spend up to $ 3,700 a month — and they aren’t in debt yet.
“As soon as the apartment is posted online, it’s basically done,” Tuckman said, even if he quickly sends an email to schedule an apartment visit, “there’s already another applicant.” I added.
