Hi, Anne, This unit is apparently a co-op, and so the real estate taxes are embedded in the monthly maintenance fee, which is $527/month. Of that 65% is tax deductible as that portion represents the property tax. As you probably know, with a co-op you own shares in a corporation, and not real estate. Please let me know if you have any interest in seeing this or any other property. Sincerely, Margie Weschler

Hi Anne, This is listed incorrectly. It is a Cooperative not a Condo. The difference is with a Coop you don't own the unit but shares in a Corporation. The corporation is made up of all the buildings occupants and shareholders. You will get a proprietary lease and stock certificate. You pay a monthly maint. that will inlcude your pro-rata share of the buildings property taxes, care for the grounds, etc. A portion of your maint. will be tax deductible, usually 50%-60%. A condo is considered real property in NY and you own the unit, pay property taxes, and a monthly common charge to care for the complex. There is a board of managers that govern the condo.

With that being said (sorry if you already new this :o), the monthly maintenence is $527.

Please feel free to ask any further questions. I live in the next town over from this building.
