If you can afford to buy a condo then great, you might want to do that. However if you are not in the financial position to do so, then you might want to consider buying HDFC. As Anna said there are income restrictions which may or may not work in your favor. Also use the link that she has provided for more information on HDFC apartments.
The answer is NO. You should always consider how you are going to sell the unit before you buy it. You should be very selective considering the tremendous inventory on the market right now. I agree with Tony and Nick on the topic. It is pleasant to see that more brokers have an understanding and knowledge of the subject.
Best of luck!!
With the market as plentiful as it is now, and considering the leverage that buyer's currently have, i highly recommend going with a condo rather than co-op. The majority of new developments are condominium, so if you look to re-sell in the future, it will be harder if you own a co-op because it does not appreciate as strongly and there is a lot more demand for condos. I can gladly e-mail you some brand new condo listings so that you can compare. I just need your general price range, apartment size preferred/considered, and neighborhood preferences. If you have any more questions, i would be happy to answer them for you in more detail. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (646) 512-5742.
