Dear Melissa:

If you want contact me direct. I have several co-ops listed in Brooklyn and would be more than happy to assist. Here are some things to keep in mind when purchasing a co-op in Brooklyn:

1) All co-ops are different and they each have different policies and "house rules", make sure you find out all the policies and rules (as an example some do not allow pets, some do not allow subletting).
2) Most co-ops in Brooklyn have minimum down payment requirements, most are 20% or more. Make sure you know this so that you know you meet the minimum requirement.
3) Make sure you find out the co-ops flip tax policy. This is a fee the coop charges the seller of the coop at the closing. If the flip tax is to high, it can make it hard to sell the coop down the road and it may also make it difficult for you to obtain financing on that particular coop. Remember, the coop has to meet the mortgage bankers qualifying standards in addition to yourself!
4) make sure your attorney reviews the coops financial statements to make sure they are in god financial health.
5) Most coops require "board approval" of the buyer. This is like going on a job interview, make sure you are prepared. they usually will ask you for 2-3 professional and 2-3 business references, work on getting those now so you have them ready!
6) Make sure that the attorney you hire specializes in coops in Brooklyn.

If I can be of further assistance, feel free to contact me direct any time. Good luck!

There are many listed here on Trulia.
Just leave your search open to all of Brooklyn, not your dream neighborhood, and then put in the price and quite a few listings will come up.....unfortunately probably not the neighborhoods that you are hoping for.
But there are some very nice apartments out there.
Keep an open mind, keep an open search.

All the best,
