The maintenance includes your gas, water, heat and property taxes. It is also tax deductible and you can apply for the STAR Program which reduces your maintenance and there is no income requirement.
I can guarantee you that it is much cheapter to buy a two bedroom co-op than a house in Brooklyn. If you haven't noticed the prices on homes in the low $300's are scarce and may not be in the best neighborhoods.
I have many two bedroom co-ops that you can get for as low as $160,000 to $200,000. Visit my website at:
http://www.KandHhomes.com and take a look. Give me a call if you have any co-op requirement questions or you have interest in one of the co-ops.
