It is a co-op. If you are looking to purchase as an investor, I would advise you only look at condos. While some co-ops are more lenient or more strict than others on subletting, there is always the expectation that the unit be owner-occupied. The vehicle of investment and for unlimited subletting is a condo.

Excellent advice. thank you. It's unfortunate that there are limited condos available south of 90st in the $290,000 range.

Hi,

The building policy is that you have to live in the apartment for 2 years and then after the 2 year period you can sublet for 2 out of 5 years. The owner is willing to pay 1 years worth of maintenance and that could possibly be increased to 2 years if someone was interested in purchasing. I hope that helps! I'm having an open house on Sunday if you would like to come by, 12-1pm.

Keep in mind that most co-ops have restrictive policies, therefore for investment purposes focus on condos. Also consider working with an agent of your own who can provide any necessary information.
