How to Lower Your Rent

Paying too much for your apartment? Don't be bitter, be a bargainer.

I just successfully negotiated a rent reduction for the first time in over five years of renting in Brooklyn, N.Y. Sure, it was only a whopping $25 per month, but when I calculate that I will have an extra $300 at the end of next year, it does not sound too shabby.

So how did I do it and what can you learn from my experience?
