Trustworthy, Easy to Use NYC Apartment Rental App

Everyone has advice when it comes to apartment hunting in New York City and the best NYC apartment rental app. But take it from someone new to apartment hunting that has recently been through the process- there’s an apartment out there for you, you just need the tools to find it. I was looking for a user-friendly website/app to search real listings that valued good pictures and legitimate brokers. And thankfully, Naked Apartments has renters best interests at heart.

On Naked Apartment’s website and app, browsing can be narrowed by:

  • number of bedrooms
  • maximum/minimum monthly rent
  • amenities (elevator, furnished, gym, laundry)
  • filters (pets, fees, open house dates, bathrooms, subway, photos)

This can help lookers weed through unwanted listings. The verified filter (“Verified” means that multiple indicators suggest the apartment is available and accurate) can also help renters find authentic offerings. While the more filters used, the less options will show- it’s still helpful when renters have specific priorities. From there, renters can view listings sorted by quality score- rather than date added or brokers paying for visibility. Listings that seem suspicious, with a price too good to be true, will be flagged by Naked Apartments as a warning.


Naked Apartment has been a leader in serving apartment hunters in many ways.  Naked Apartments were the first to combine multiple listings, established a comprehensive verification system, and create a fun neighborhood search tool (search by “vibe!”). Wary users can also read reviews on brokers from other Naked Apartment fans.



Naked Apartments has shared great updates and it’s even compatible with the Apple Watch. The only downside of the app is that you can’t filter by move-in date. Apartments go fast in New York City, so most listings are for immediate occupancy. Otherwise, listings will be for the nearest move-in date (either the 1st of 15th of the month). So, if you prefer to start your search earlier, try another platform like RentHackr. Will you consider using Naked Apartments? How you think it differentiates from other platforms?

  1. […] Naked Apartments has a number of filters, including no fee and low fee. Be wary that a no fee and low fee apartment can still have an application fee, for example $500 per person. However, this is still considerably lower than a broker’s fee. This search will limit the number of listings, but it’s a helpful way to prioritize some listings over others. […]
