All opinions are subjective. Always ask neighbors how they like a neighborhood and even ask a local police department if need be. Opinions are just that, opinions. Follow your gut and do your own research. Remember what is good for you may not be for someone else. Good Luck!... more
Commission Rates are always negotiable. The best thing to do is to interview serveral Realtors and find out about their services and commission rate. The lowest rate is not always the best service.
Good luck to you.... more
I know there are 11 active listings on the MLS. You can call the Management Agent Live Right Realty. The number I have for them is (516) 829-9898. They might be able to tell you the rental to ownership for that complex. Good Luck!... more
It would be difficult to determine what you could qualify for. If you are looking to buy, there are many costs involved, as well as a board process therefore if you are interested in a co-op your credit score is very important. There are FHA programs that are not as reliant on credit, but there are still criteria that must be met, renting would likely be your best option. Depending on what you are willing to pay monthly you can get a nice townhouse or condo. Call me so that I can help guide you, I will tell you what is available in the area(s) of your choosing, it would be my pleasure.... more
Hi Joe, This type of question can only by answered by seeing the property. As an agent not only do we take into consideration what other homes have sold for in your area, condition plays a big part. There is no way to guage exactly how long it will take to sell. I will tell you that if the home needs alot of updating or repairs the price should definitely reflect it. Due to current economic times buyters are already on the fence, when you put a home on the market you want to entice them to come off the fence. I have worked with hundreds of buyers in the past few years, my point is that I have a really good handle on what types of buyers are out there and what they look for. If you would like we could have a no strings attached conversation about strategies thta might work for you. If you would like to setup an in formal meeting at the home I can walk thru and give you my input and professional opinion.

What is your price range? There are plenty of co-op buildings but nothing that would compare to the Riverview. If you want "luxury" you might have to look north of Yonkers or in Riverdale. If you let me know your price range, I can send you some listings but they would be more expensive than Riverview. You can e-mail me back at email@example.com

245 Rumsey is a big complex. Anywhere in, any complex, about 10% of the population is always moving. People fall in love, they marry, they have children, they separate, the get jobs, they die. (not in any order) That Rumsey building currently has 6 properties availiable for sale. That is not unusual for a building of this size.
Plus it's 20% down, so not every one has that chunk of change. If you need help finding available Rumsey homes for sale...AskRey.

Try contacting Westchester Residential Opportunities. They have offices in Mt. Vernon and now Yonkers. Call either office. I don't have their number on me, but it you call info, I'm sure you'll find their number. They can help with any housing issues especially if you fall under the Disability Act and landlords are not responding.... more
My question is.. who told you it was a 20% down requirement? Since the home is under $417,000 (the FHA limit in Missouri) you can get an FHA loan which requires a 3.5% down payment. If you don't have the 20% down you will have to pay mortgage insurance, but at least you can get into the home. If you are a veteran you can get a 100% loan with no PMI. If the house is in the country (or an area considered 'rural') you can get a 100% loan. The lenders are not doing any of the 80% 1st mortgage and 20% second mortgages anymore. You have to have some "skin in the game" now. Closing costs are another expense, but usually you can roll those into the purchase price of the house and ask the seller to pay them (up to a certain amount). Before you get stuck with a predatory lender, please call me at 816-365-2225 and I'll get you the name of a lender you can trust to find YOU the RIGHT loan. Good luck! www.Ask-Cathy.com... more
Hi, this is really an opinion based on individual needs and wants. To give you a better understanding on the two, please visit my Blog on my Trulia profile. Scroll through and you will find a very thorough explanation of purchasing a Coop or Condo. Then you will hopefully be able to formulate your own opinion. They are two separate blog posts and a couple of weeks apart but should be easy enough to find.

I am sorry to hear about your situation, I can understand how frustrating it must be. Realtors cannot give you legal advice, so there is not much I can help you with. However, based on the limited information you provided something is wrong. I suggest you have a very firm conversation with your attorney. He/she should have been more on the ball about making sure the buyer had the parking lot inspected in a timely fashion.
You may need to retain another attorney to help you if your attorney is unresponsive. Attorneys' are required to handle escrow funds pursuant to very detailed regulations, and unfortunately I have seen cases where this does not happen. An independent legal review may be necessary.
Best of luck!
