“The seasonal fall slowdown has begun – and will likely continue as we enter the holiday season,” explained Gary Malin, President of Citi Habitats. “Now is a great time to be in the market for a new rental apartment, especially at the higher end of the pricing spectrum. With rising inventory, many owners are being generous with concessions – especially in luxury new developments. If you can act before the end of the year, the move-in gift offered by your new landlord could be the best one you receive all year.”
