I am a broker who is investment minded, instead of being transaction-ally focused. My aspiration is to own a few properties within some years so I believe I think on a tangent which would be beneficial to your endeavors.

[ My mother was an agent during my teens & young adulthood, my dad does contracting. My best friends were investors & I majored in architecture. My broker actively buys sells holds rents & flips properties. ]

I would like to assist in your search and help you extract the most value & ROI possible through insightful seeking & dude diligence. Thanks for your consideration

Hello Ceasar, Rocco Parascandola writes in today's NY Daily News; A 62-year-old Italian tourist visiting his daughter in Brooklyn was shot and wounded in a scuffle with a thug who snatched her necklace, police said Monday. The incident happened Thursday night and the suspect, Tyron Lovick, 36, was arrested Friday and charged with attempted murder. The victim, Luciano Giuliani, and his 28-year-old daughter, Eleonora went shopping at Target in the Atlantic Terminal mall. About 9:50 p.m., as they were on their way home, the suspect approached them from behind near Greene Ave. and Cumberland St. in Fort Greene, police said. Lovick snatched the daughter’s necklace and ran west on Greene Ave., but her dad chased him, police said. He caught up to the suspect as short distance away, and in the ensuing scuffle the suspect pulled out a .32 caliber revolver and shot Giuliani once in the abdomen, police said. Lovick then ran off, leaving the chain behind. Giuliani, who police said is not related to the former mayor, was rushed to Kings County Hospital. He underwent surgery, in which a piece of his colon was removed. Police said he is expected to survive. Eleonora gave police a description of the suspect, including the detail that he was wearing a Yankees cap. Police then spotted the suspect on surveillance video from a nearby building. Police said someone who knows Lovick told police who he is.
Lovick was arrested at his home on Fulton St. the next day and charged with attempted murder.
He was held on $300,000 bail. He suggested to police that he didn’t mean to shoot Giuliani and that the gun “went off” during the struggle, court papers say. Lovick has about a dozen arrests, police said, for charges including gun possession, robbery and grand larceny.

The taxes in NYC are based upon a formula that uses a percentage of the value of the house to get the annual taxes.

Hi Steven,

I have an easy to use Excel Spreadsheet that my clients seem to like. It will estimate your closing costs for a given purchase. Give me a shout and I'll send it your way. One other thing to note: if you end up purchasing a new condo, the seller will often pass on his or her closing costs on to you.

Good Luck,
