Does owning real estate (a home in another state) make me ineligible for an HDFC apartment purchase in NY?

Hi jenk,

An HDFC coop must be your primary residence. Owning a home in another state may make you ineligible. Why do you own another home? Are you planning on selling that home and relocating to NY? Do you receive income from the other property? Will the income you receive put you over the HDFC income cap? These are all questions the board will want answers to.

There are many rules and regulations involved in purchasing an HDFC apartment. The guidelines are strictly observed. If you fall under the income cap for the specific building and this will be your primary residence, then yes, you can purchase. If you are looking at these apartments as an investment, look elsewhere. Usually the rental guidelines are very limited and must be closely observed by the building.

if your income fits the income guidelines for the property and you are using the hdfc as your primary residence, you should be fine. if you are buying the hdfc as an investment to flip it will not work.

Keep in mind that an HDFC co-op must be your primary residence, and they do have income restrictions; therefore owning another property may pose a problem when it comes to qualification.
