How does someone pay ONLY $34 a month. I'm barely making it each month due to my rent being so astronomically high. (I might add that I only make $1300 a month, and I live in Flatbush in a studio which I only pay $500 for-oh and I am white.) I honestly don't even know what a rent stabilized apartment is but if it's like a Section 8 voucher I better sign up.
Can someone explain how people only pay pennies to live somewhere really nice? Five hundred may not seem like a lot but I don't make that much...so...

Please everyone help me understand what a "rent stabilized" apartment is, how does one achieve in getting one (where does one look, ect.), and do they offer them in every state?

Also how do people feel okay that someone else is paying three times the amount to live in a comparable apartment??:sma ck:

No, rent stabilized isnt a program. read here for more info:

NYC Rent Guidelines Board

its easy to find a place- mine is rent stabilized, but I still pay $1295 for it. Rents in my area are typically 300 more than I pay per month. I had to pay a brokers fee though, and I find that many people who have the opportunity to grab a great rent stab. place also pay a fee.

even if you get one now the rents are now pretty much up to market value and the rent increases have actually been more the last few years then in un-stabilized. there are no more bargains. those bargains were only for those that got in decades ago when rents were kept artificially low. once the origonal tenant is out rents are at or close to market.

If you need to be approved by the city then it is a form of low income housing geared toward a specific range of income.
