What is this?

If you live in a city where renters are charged broker fees, this tool helps make it easier to compare the rent of apartments with varying broker fees by amortizing the fee over the length of your lease.

Even though you have to pay the broker fee up front, amortizing it like this can help you get a sense of what your total cost is between apartments with and without a fee.

What if I stay longer than the lease?

Just plug in however many years you want.
