To better understand what AboveNY.com can do for you, let us guide you through the web site. The web site consist of two major sections:
We will follow each section separately:
Search space listings
Select type and criteria of space you are looking for, then click "Next" to see "Search results" page.
"Search results" page displays all listings, that match criteria you have selected. To explore further about listings, click on each corresponding listing ID on the left side of the "Results Table" to see listing's full description. Listing description may or may not include listing owner's contact information.
If a listing description does not include the listing owner's contact information, it means that the listing owner chose to be contacted through a real estate broker. In this case, to select listings, which you would like to be contacted about, click on corresponding check box on the right side of the "Results Table" and click "Next" on the bottom of the page to get to the "Favorites" page.
"Favorites" page is where you can temporarily store selected listings as if it were a shopping cart. You can go back to search again and add more listings to "Favorites" as many times as you wish. You can also easily remove selected listings by clicking a corresponding check box on the right side of the "Favorites" page. When you are finished with your search, go back to the "Favorites" page and click "Submit" to confirm a request to be contacted regarding selected listings.
If you did not login previously, the system will ask you to login or register (if you are a new user). After login, you do not have to do anything else. A licensed real estate broker will contact you and listings owners to arrange preview of these listings.
If you know the listing ID number, you can always look at the listing without searching for it in the directory. Simply type the ID number in the "Search by ID" text box on the top left corner of the web site, then click "go".
