Showcase your experience on your profile page and get more visibility by claiming your deals. To claim your deals, you need to be a registered user and logged into your StreetEasy account. Navigate to the closing page of a property to claim deals as far back as 2004 for co-ops and 1995 for condos.
Here's how to navigate to the closing page and claim deals.
There are a few different ways to navigate to a closing page. First, you can search for the building address on the StreetEasy homepage:
You can also find recorded closings by searching for the buyer or seller’s name in this box. Select their name from the search results and jump to Step 4.
Lastly, if you’re a StreetEasy Expert, you can go to Experts > My Buildings and select the building from your list.
Once you're on the building page, scroll down to the Units section and click on the Past Sales tab.
Find your deal in the list and click the Claim button.
You're now on the closing page. Scroll down and click the Claim This Deal! button.
A pop-up will prompt you to confirm you took part in the deal. Be sure to select the correct company you were associated with at the time the deal was closed.
You’re all set! Once a deal has been claimed, it will show up on your StreetEasy profile.
Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about claiming deals:
Why can’t I claim a recent sale?
We need to get the recorded sale from the Department of Finance in order to update the final closing price. As you may already know, there is always a lag between when a sale closes and when it gets recorded with the city. Usually, it's a 2 to 8 week timeframe, but it really depends on the seller's attorney.
Once we get the recorded sale from Finance, we will link the recorded sale to the sales listing. The sales listing will automatically be updated with the final sales price and closing date.
Why can’t I claim an older sale?
It’s possible that the information filed with the Department of Finance doesn’t match the record we have on StreetEasy. This can lead to a closing not being created.
If that’s the case, our Support team is able to help. Reach out to them by submitting a closing request here. Below are some examples of information they may request on your behalf, in order to locate the closing record:
- Buyer or seller’s name
- The deed or RETT or RPTT document ID number
The full address filed with the Department of Finance, including:
- The unit number (some co-ops will use a resident unit rather than the address)
- If there was a parking spot or other add-on that would cause the filing to be “+”
Can I claim a rental?
Unfortunately, you won't be able to claim a rental deal. The city does not keep a centralized database of recorded rental agreements, as it does with sales. There is no way for us to have a "closing page" for rentals.
