The most important feature for apartment hunters in the last week was that a Manhattan rental be new or recently remodeled, according to data from apartment listings website Zumper. The other top ranked popular features included built-in heating or cooling, quiet, natural light and closet space.

“This is an important message to landlords that they should consider updating dated kitchens and baths before marketing vacancies,” Zumper COO Taylor Glass-Moore told The Real Deal.

In terms of neighborhoods, the Upper West Side was the most in-demand in the last week. Rounding out the top neighborhoods were, in order, Midtown East, the Upper East Side, the East Village and Harlem.

One-bedroom apartments once again generated the bulk – 46 percent – of renter inquiries to brokers. The median rent inquiry was $2,250 a month. Studios weren’t far behind, with 28.5 percent of leads and a median inquiry of $1,850 a month, the data show.

The rankings were determined by a representative sample of emails and phone calls sent by Zumper users in response to Manhattan rental listings available on the site during the week of July 18 through July 25.Mark Maurer
