Metal support discovered the day before closing - what could this be?
No idea. Did you have a professional inspector? What do they say? Ask the sellers. It's possible they just forgot or don't know either, but ask before closing.

Own commercial property outright, how to finance?

Are you for or against website presenter on agents' websites and blog?

Is buying into a co-op apt in brighton, worth it if the co-op doesen't own the land? Maint fee is 400.00/mo. Is a land contract feasible?
Does the co-op as an entity (the entire place) own the land or is it owned by a 3rd party. Seems risky to me, but I'm not an expert.
