From what I've read over the last 5 years on this thread, they send more letters than there are apartments. Many people may not be interested, can't afford it, moved away, or for whatever reason that they won't be moving into PS.

I think the income limit is 4 times the carrying charges, but there is also a 50% leeway and you pay a little more. Take a look at the FAQ for Waitlisters on the PS website. They explain it better than me, but they also determine the income at the time of purchase.


Good luck!

thanks! did you get a call to view apts around christmas time as well? if not i hope it is soon for you too. i find it so weird that it says 188 people ahead of me on the external waitlist on their site but i am 16.. and only 16 people behind me. it might mean there will be a new wait list opening soon hopefully.

its been 4 weeks since i viewed the apts. i am pretty sure i didnt get it but i am hoping the list moves fast and we both get a new letter soon.

I have not gotten a letter yet, but based on the fact that you have gotten one, I hope to get one in the next 6 months. And I think about 90 people on the waitlist are from 1978-1998. That basically cuts the list in half. Also, if 14 people turn down the 2 apartments that you viewed, then they should be making you an offer.

What did you think of the aortments when you saw them?

Let us know if you gat another letter or if they offer you an apartment!

one apartment had alot of windows but the layout was a bit weird. i believe the previous owner cut out an additional doorway to the kitchen/dining area. the other had only 2 windows but the layout was nicer. both were fairly small but you cannot complain because of the price and location. it would be perfect for one person but no more than 2. the buildings are really well kept and the laundry room is like a huge laundromat. i would take either apartments of course. what number are you on the list?

i hope they send me another letter soon as well. hoping they just keep coming one after the another.

Hi Mrspeel77, was your response to my question regarding how long it took for you to be informed that you received an apartment after viewing them and having 1st choice? Thank you.

Thanks Mrspeel77, it’s been about a month now and haven’t heard back yet. Guessing it’s partially due to backlog from the holidays.

Yes, number 1 for Studio, and did check in with them. Confirmed that there is a backlog. There were more letters to view apts (for different size apts) that were sent out right before mine, so they are calling based on chronological order. Hope to hear something soon.

o nice! i am number 16 on that studio list. i doubt i get one but congrats! i am very excited for you.

which one did you like better the 3rd floor one or the 6th floor one?

if you dont mind me asking. how many letters did you get before becoming number 1? what number were you when you first got the first letter to view the apts? and how long did the process take from the first letter to now? i just want to get a estimate of how long i may have to wait.
