Modern buildings often possess many of the same amenities that many people find desirable in an apartment building. From in-building laundry rooms, to common areas, doormen, and elevators, these features often drive unit sales and rentals and modern buildings are commonly built using a similar model. While these spaces are often pleasurable for many people to live in, they can be a bit monotonous and not what many are looking for.
If you are looking for a unique apartment to buy or rent the search for a place becomes more difficult. New York City is one of the oldest big cities in the United States and therefore has a lot of older buildings that have elements of the time periods when they were first developed. A classic example of this are the pre-war buildings that were built before the Second World War. Pre-war buildings are more spacious, have higher roofs, and offer home owners with a charm that many find desirable. Other buildings have units that were sub-divided or combined in interesting ways, or have unique elements or technologies from the period during which they were constructed that set them apart from other units on the market. Finding an apartment that has some of these unique elements may differentiate your home from others on the market and provide you with the unique home that you are looking for.
Other people are looking for something still more exotic and try to find the one of a kind dwelling that they have always dreamed of. Doing so can be very challenging for a person seeking one of these dwellings. They are, by their nature, rare and often in great demand. If you are seeking a unique space, the major step you should undertake is finding a high quality real estate agency that is familiar with the local market and can gear you in the right direction, temper your expectations, and help you locate the unique space you are looking for. If you are looking for a unique home in New York City start with the real estate broker and discuss with them what you are looking for.
