Help Jeremy Find an Apartment
UPDATE, Aug. 11, 2013: I found an apartment.
Hello friends and strangers! (Don't know me? Here's some info.)
My landlord is raising my rent. So I'm looking for a new apartment: a studio within a 45-minute public-transport commute of Rockefeller Center, for less than $1,400/month, ideally available July 1. I'm checking out Craigslist and StreetEasy. But I figure that, somewhere out there, a friend of a friend probably knows of a much better apartment than I'd ever find online. So I'd like to try an experiment:
I'll give you* $60 if you point me to a great apartment that I eventually rent.
I'll give you* $30 if you point me to someone who points me to that apartment.
And I'll give you $10 if you point me to someone who points me to someone who points to that apartment.
* Or the charity of your choosing.
How will I know who led me to whom? I built this little website to keep track. Here's how it works:
If you have a tip about an apartment, use the "Suggest an Apartment" form below. I'll see your response, as well the people who referred you.
Otherwise, use the "Pass Along" form below. It'll generate a link that you can share, and which will give you credit for the people you refer.
Fair warning: Since this an experiment, I can't guarantee anything, but I'll try my hardest. Questions? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks, and let's see if this works!
