October 25, 2012

Chris asks…

Which area in manhattan has the best studio apartments?

I’m doing some apt. searching and I’m considering the upper west. I’m curious though. Which area tends to have the best quality of the studio apartments?

only manhattan please.

Administrator answers:

The newer buildings on the far east side seem to have a lot of studio lines, the older buildings in general have fewer. I much prefer the UWS to anything on the east side, so I suggest that you keep looking up there.

How can I store away things in my basement?

I live in a studio apt. What’s good for putting my off season clothes in the basement?

Also, do I have to put lysol in it after 8 months?

Administrator answers:

Rubbermaid tubs and if you want to keep your clothes smelling fresh add some sachets or fabric softner sheets.

Joseph asks…

How do I start a bed and breakfast in my home?

My home is in a residential neighborhood. Is it possible to rent out a studio apt. on my property as if it were a hotel?

Administrator answers:

First you will need to find out the zoning laws in your town and area. As far as renting out a studio apt…I don’t see why not..However a bed and breakfast is slightly different. And a bit more involved. A bed and breakfast is considered a business and therefore there are alot of thing to consider. If you are truly interested. Start going to B&Bs in your area. Ask questions. See how much work is involved. Taxes, insurance etc etc. But if you only have one room to “rent” then I really dont see it as a problem as that isnt really considered a Bed and breakfast. Lots of people rent rooms from there home weekly monthly and sometimes even daily. So I would proceed ahead until someone tells you otherwise. Check with your home owners insurance as well. Just to make sure you are covered in case of an accident.
Be careful how you advertise…I wouldn’t advertise as a Bed and breakfast…advertise as room/ studio apt for rent. Keep it simple.
Also…get with a local real estate agent who can help get you established and someone that can refer perspective “renters” to you. Do as much research as possible and never be afraid to ask question of people who run the same type of buisness.
Good luck!

Nancy asks…

What is the best futon to sleep on every night?

I am about to move into a very small studio apt. So small that I can either have a bed or somewhere to sit so I thought I could get a futon and solve that problem. What would be the best futon to use as a couch and a bed everyday? Also, it needs to be under $300. Is that even possible?

Administrator answers:

Well then the best is for you is a futon with a thick mattress futons are not comfortable.Why not get a twin bed and then some recliners . Then a bunch of long pillows to make the bed a couch this way when you have company the can sit on the recliners.

Laura asks…

What is the best neighborhood in New York City for a new college graduate to relocate to?

New college graduate looking for a a studio apt under $1100 per month in a safe neighborhood. Suggestions on where to look and/or neighborhoods to avoid?

Administrator answers:

Most grads live downtown in the village. Artsy folk, alternate lifestyle, philosophical, poets, beer guzzlers and grass smokers. However, the new smart trend is to move to brooklyn where rent is about 60% cheaper and still only a $2.00 subway ride away from manhattan
