So you bought an apartment in New York City. Mazel tov! Between the down payment, closing costs, and moving expenses, you may be bringing your own sandwiches to work for a while. But it’s all worth it when you look around at your treasured possessions nestled (or crammed) into your beautiful new space.

With all those costs, you may be tempted to put off getting homeowner’s insurance. This is what economists call “literally insane.” Luckily, getting NYC homeowner’s insurance with Gotham Brokerage is not only easy, it’s actually affordable, too. Maybe this will put things in perspective:

Let’s say you decide to join a CSA in your neighborhood. For a June-to-November neighborhood membership you’ll probably be paying at least $500. That’s about twice as much as you would spend to get a year’s worth of homeowner’s insurance at Gotham — about $230-$280 annually to protect you in case of water damage, theft, accidents that take place in your home, and much more.

You can request a free quote from Gotham or give them a call, 212.406.7300. In the long run, it’s going to save you a lot of kale. Or cabbage. (You know what we mean–money.)

    If you want to save money on your CSA…because you’re buying much needed insurance you can shop at the Graham Ave. Farmers Market and personally pick out what you like to eat. The market will be opening July 12th and is located on Cook Street near the corner of Graham Avenue in E. WIlliamsburg…2 blocks north of Bdwy.
    The market opens from 8 am to 4:30 every Sat. Besides the great veggies plus…you get free Vitamin D from the sun and an opportunity to meet nice folks!
