There is a long slew of questions I'd need to ask you to allow you to naturally come to a conclusion of your own. But first thing to be clear on is - are you buying for investment purposes only with the intent to use it as a rental property and and investment, or a place you'd like to live in.
Feel free to call me at the office tomorrow - 917-848-6928, I'll be happy to walk you through some pros and cons. I happen to know the buildings well.
CPS with central park view is the best NYC has to offer. Even during the week sales in NYC bt. 2008 and 2011, prices on CPS, 5th Avenue and CPW with view of CP did not go down, but they continue to go up while rest of NYC and the country, prices went down.
If you need any assistance, feel free to contact me without any obligation. Richard Nymark at Bellmarc email@example.com; 212-517-9101
Generally 2B/2bths have a greater(easier) resale value, something to consider if you're not going to hold on to the apartment for a long while...also it looks like you are writing from AL... people love to come and visit friends in NYC..so a 2B might be nice IF you like house guests and the 1B if you dont...I personally am a view person, thus if the view is outstanding, one that helps with resale and retaining value as well it is worth a lot for soothing your city weary self after a long day. Other things to consider..condo or coop? Square footage? Monthlies..either maintenance for a coop or common charges and taxes for a condo...price per sq foot /asking prices?
I hope this was helpful, feel free to call me should you have any further real estate question. 2122272252 firstname.lastname@example.org
