Each day, any number of tenants see the perfect Brooklyn house for sale, yet fail to go ahead and investigate further. Making the move from tenant to homeowner is, after all, one of life’s major decisions
I rented until 1995 when I purchased my first home (I am 67). To me, it is like a bank account.
When I rented, I paid the landlord's mortgage. Now I pay my own and will be reimbursed when I sell.
When I rented, I had to vacate over and over as each landlord either sold their property or had family they wanted to put into it. No one can make me move out of my own home until I am ready.
Crag, do not allow society to tell you what and how...it is your life and it is up to you to decide what is right for you. I tried both and am happier being a home owner.
Best of luck in whatever you decide.... more
If you are planning to remain in the apartment for any length of time, you are probably better better off with a 2 year lease. Otherwise you will be subject to 2 increases as opposed to 1 even thought the 2 year lease is a little more... more
Bottom line is that you will have to be able to get a loan in a year to be able to buy the house. No loan means you lose the extra money and deposit you put up. They are not good deal, but so many want to believe they are and they just are not. Run away - just rent until you can really buy and then buy.... more

If you purchase a property with less than 20% down you will have to get private mortgage insurance. This can be quite costly so keep that in mind. Your best bet is to get yourself pre-qualified with a mortgage banker to find out what you can or cannot do.
When you meet with the loan officer there are some important questions you need to ask such as 1) how much can I borrow? 2) what rate can you offer me? 3) how much will my monthly payment be for the loan? 4) how much will my closing costs be? 5) do I have to pay for PMI and if so how much will that cost?
Once you have the answers to those question you can add in your other living expenses such as monthly common charges, insurance, real estates taxes if applicable and utility expenses. See if all that fits into your budget and if it does remember... You will also save a lot of money on your income taxes when you own as oppossed to renting! Your accountant can tell you exactly how much you can save.
Also keep in min that if you are purchasing a co-op, some of them have minimum down payment requirements. These policies vary from building to building so you should make sure to only look at properties where the 10% down is permitted.
I suggest you have a good real estate agent help you. If I can be of further assistance please contact me directly. Good luck!

The bank does not have to agree to the short sale, so you may not get this property at all. I certainly hope you have an attorney working for you? If so, definitely get their advice. First find out what your contractual obligations are now on this short sale at this point, or you might end up with two apartments--one rental with a lease you are obligated to pay, and one owned by you that you are also obligated to pay for.

Now is a perfect time to buy. Interest rates are low, prices are down and if this is your first home, you can qualify for a $8,000 tax credit. It's impossible to time the market or say what home prices will do. However, if you're ready and able to buy, this is the time.
I would love to help you find the apartment you're looking for. Feel free to give me a call.
