For many of us, it’s hard to pass up an opportunity to live in Manhattan especially when you find an amazing deal. These are what we at RentHop like to refer to internally as gems. Thanks to years of accumulated rental data, we have some of the most affordable and quality rental listings the Big Apple has to offer. Our inventory of listings has grown exponentially over the years, and each month we’ll go over some of our favorite deals for rental listings.

The phenomenon of high demand and low supply/inventory of available listings continues into the month of November though seasonality is starting to kick in as we enter into the late stage of the Fall season. As a result, rental concessions being offered by landlords is back to pre pandemic rates (on average one month free) with some buildings not even offering any. Thankfully, RentHop is still getting a great inventory of gems. Today we’ll focus on some of our favorite deals in Manhattan for this coming November!
