This ad was somewhat misleading. I went to see the apartment this weekend. The individual posting the ad is an agent for the owner. The pictures were accurate but most of the utilities were separate from the cost and not included. The agent is trying to sell a co-op on behalf of the true owner. Things not clearly stated in the ad. Also, the agent increased the price from the posting and sold the apartment like an auction. Prospective tenants each made different bids and the one with the highest offer won the contract from the owner. I believe a fee was built into the inflated price. I spent a lot of money to go see the apartment only to be disappointed. The agent was professional and well-mannered but the ad was a hidden ad for a co-op with some catches.
