Searching for an apartment is a serious process that entails a lot of research. Doing so amid the COVID-19 pandemic can be stress-inducing, we get it! Platinum Properties is here to alleviate your concerns and help you find the home of your dreams.

Here are some tips on how to efficiently and effectively look for apartments during the state-mandated quarantine:

Finding An Agent

Surprisingly, the virtual home search process is not too different from a traditional search. Both require an exhaustive amount of due diligence regarding the model, size, price and location that meet your criteria.

Hiring a Platinum agent will put you ahead of the curve when hunting and applying for a property. An agent can easily facilitate the process, customize your search, and make it enjoyable too!

Platinum boasts an extensive portfolio of exclusive listings – and each of our team members is armed with access to the broadest selection of properties in New York.

We strongly encourage you to contact one of our exclusive agents; tell them exactly what you are looking for, so they can leverage their industry experience to present you with a vast selection of homes to virtually tour.

Touring Properties

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has restricted physical access to units. To mitigate this limitation, Platinum has spared no expense investing in state-of-the-art technology that enables our valued clients to view properties via the most advanced virtual tours.

This value-added resource combined with our agents’ expertise is the perfect combination to give our clients an advantage over other interested parties.

Rent Costs

To provide an incentive to transact during the coronavirus crisis, certain landlords are offering a range of concessions including free rent, covering the broker’s commission, or leniency with start dates.

Our agents have intimate knowledge of which landlords and owners are willing to negotiate. Platinum agents can help you navigate and take advantage of this new dynamic in New York’s real estate market.

Applying & Signing A Contract

Platinum’s tech-driven solutions allow our clients to process applications, sign and endorse documents, and close, all electronically.

Need a Hand?

New Yorkers are still on the move, even during these unprecedented times. Platinum looks forward to building a lasting (virtual) relationship with you – and when this crisis passes, we’ll make it a physical reality.

We look forward to helping you find your new place and make your move. Like all New Yorkers, we may have hit a speed bump, but we will not be stopped.
