All the best,
Happy New Year! Your question is a good one but not easily answered in terms of a list.
If you are looking on-line on your own, use a site that allows you to see detailed MLS information. For instance on our MLS there is place where it will tell you if the complex allows renting.
However, having said that, your best way to know for sure is to call the managing agency for the complex and asking them (if course an agent you work with can do this easily and may get a quicker response). Reason for this, you are right that most co-ops have stricter rules than condos for renting. However, a co-op listed on the MLS may show that there is no renting on the MLS sheet but if you call the managing agency they may tell you after a year or two usually, renting may be allowed.
Before buying anything, make sure you have a direct answer from the managing agency and if need be the board. Sounds like you want a place you can live in for now but want to hang onto in the future for investment. Remember if you find a co-op that will eventually allow renting, the board is going to have to approve your renter. With a condo you do not have to pass your renter to a board for approval. If you have more questions, don't hesitate to ask. Sorry there is no easier way.

Most condos rent and most co-ops do not. For some reason...most of the co-ops on Old Mam'k Rd. allow renting.
