We started GoHomeNY after having our ups and downs with living in NYC buildings. Everyone who has lived in NYC or is thinking about living in the city has experienced the same. We found an apartment in a small building in a trendy neighborhood and thought we had found the perfect place: great layout, low carrying costs, small boutique-y feel. After we moved in, we found out there was no insulation, under-powered heat and cooling, and worst of all a leaking roof. Thousands of dollars in assessments later we decided we did not want to go through this experience again, and wanted others to have a resource to find out all the positives and negatives about a building before making a rental or purchasing commitment. As a result, we started GoHomeNY.com.
Join the thousands who are using the site to review and research buildings across NYC!
Why contribute to the site? There is so much to know about a building that is unknowable as a renter / buyer / investor / agent. Help others by highlighting the positives and negatives of your building. Encourage owners, landlords, or managing companies to improve buildings. If you have found the perfect place, let others know to increase its value. Or if you just have a salacious story, give us the juicy details.
