Do some of your homework first before deciding on a neighborhood--visit a neighborhood several times and at different times of day to get a sense of “belonging”. Check out area statistics; real estate professionals are prohibited from “steering”—enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods; so, you should check out demographics on your own to assure your comfort level can be reached. Keep in mind, opinoins are just that and what may be good for one is not necessarily the case for another.
Hi K. That area is a little to south for me. I assume you are looking for a CMA "comparative market analysis" for your co-op. Have any other 2 bedrooms sold in your complex recently? Try reaching out to some listing agents in your area and interview them. If you are thinking of selling, while interviewing, keep in mind that it's not all about price either. The agent that gives you the highest price--isn't always the best agent. Good Luck!
