What You Can Do With $5,531

Alex Tseng | March 22, 2017

The average broker fee in NYC is $5,531. Here's what you could do instead:

1 trip for two to Paris with airfare and 5-star accommodations.

2 bottles of the most expensive champagne in the world... because, why not...

3 sofas from Design Within Reach.

4 part-time courses from General Assembly so you can learn to code!

5 Macbook Airs.

10 Dinners at Per Se for two... that's 10 more unforgettable Tinder dates than the avg Joe who used a broker.

50 IKEA expedit cabinets.

100 bottles of Laphroaig 10 year single malt scotch whiskey.

150 Uber pool rides from JFK to the city... or Lyft Line, if you're not an Uber fan.

550 months of Spotify premium.

5,500 cans of San Pellegrino.

11,000 children get fed for a day through the UN World Food Programme through this great app called ShareTheMeal.

44,000 balloons for your housewarming party.

1,400,000 sheets of Charmin Ultra Soft toilet paper... to TP that broker who screwed you over.

Invest in a company like Tesla when it first IPO'd and you'd now have over $55,000.

Think about all the things you can do by finding your apartment on REMY.
