I am concern because of the replies given by those that are supposed to have expertise in real estate sales in the area. First of all maintenance is no expensive if you consider that all utilities (electricity & gas) plus an outstanding gym premises are included. For $ 1.000 related to a 1400 sq.feet condo you have all that plus all the advantages of a hotel service. Regarding real estate tax, is not hight either because any other newer building in the area have higher real estate taxes. For an above size condo tax are 8500 annually. Everybody have parking facilities for only $ 120 monthly. In any other similar building when you have to pay your electricity and gas bill separately to the companies you will realize that at the end of the day costs are similar or even higher than those in the Galaxy and furthermore is quite difficult to have parking for that price. Nothing to say regarding the fact that no building in the area has the same gym, pools, spa and so on facilities that Galaxy offers.
Condo prices in Galaxy depends on many factors like condo orientation, views, floor, and obviously condo conditions. If the unit is below 15 th. floor and looking towards the palisade price will be much lower that those of a similar condo above 20 th floor overlooking NYC skyline. Many factors must be taking into account before to define an appraisal value for Galaxy units.
If maintenance and / or real estate taxes are deterrant for some prospective buyers they should look for some other building in the area that, for sure, will not offer the same that Gakaxy does. It's up to them.
With the interior renovation that will shortly take place Galaxy will be, by far, the best place to live in the area taking into account the price - value relation along with what you get living there.

What recourse does a Co-Op Shareholder/Seller have who cannot find a buyer (despite lowering the price over a six year period to 2/3rds the original!)…

Hi Sherri

It would really depend on the Coop. They all have different requirements. If the coop allows you, you can do as little as 10% down.

On a Condo, it its an FHA approved condo its 3.5% down. If it is Fannie/Freddie approved, you can do a 5% down payment.

Call me.. I have closed in many of the Condos & Coops in the area. I can walk you through the inventory..

Hi Ark

The 1 hr commute to Port authority would best suit Hudson or Eastern Bergen County NJ.

All towns have great value for resale.

Give me a call I can guide you through the area, and find you the best home.

Best Regards,

Jose Martinez
