Even if it's written 네, it should be prounounced 니. I don't think I've ever heard a Korean pronounce 니 as 'nay' when meaning 'your'-- it's too easy to confuse with '내.' Furthermore, when I watch movies or dramas, the subtitles will read '네' even though the actor says '니.' I think it's safe to say '니' is the standard pronuncation. So yeah, the sentence is written correctly, but the audio file is wrong.
It's not a stupid question, don't worry.
Even though the words sound very similar, they have very different meanings. An APARTMENT is a home for one family in a building with many other apartments. Apartments are almost always rented. A DEPARTMENT is a smaller group inside a company or organization. However, department is often used with other words, for example, police department and department store.
I hope this helps!
