    Finding any apartment in NYC right now is hard as hell, let alone the unicorn you described.

    Either you have a tonne of money and can pay a professional to sort out your helper’s visa or simply forget it. Cheaper to live in a hotel / serviced apartment. If you were moving to the European countryside… maybe easier.
