While both New York and New Jersey have relatively high income taxes, New Jersey's lowest income tax rate is 1.4 percent while New York's is 4 percent. The lowest tax bracket is also wider in New Jersey than in the Empire State, as of 2013. Furthermore, while you'll have to file taxes in both states if you commute, New Jersey lets you take the tax you've already paid as a dollar-for-dollar credit against your New Jersey tax liability. Shopping is less expensive in New Jersey. Every borough of New York City has an 8.875 percent sales tax. New Jersey's statewide retail sales tax is 7 percent -- already less than New York's. However, areas of New Jersey that are in designated enterprise zones, like much of Jersey City, have a sales tax of just 3.5 percent. ... more

Kbridge - Qualifying to buy a home on your own, and passing a coop board's rigid requirements can be 2 distinctly different things. Perhaps where you are in MN, this isn't the case, but it is the case in NYC. The coop boards can be brutal. I had to co-sign for my son to rent an apt. in a coop building, and we both had to jump through hoops, as well as meet in front of the board for an interview. I had to show an income equal to 8 times the rent, just as a co-signer - buying requirements can be even more stringent. Every board is different.

Gina......If you are qualified on your own to do so, .buy a condo instead of a coop. At least that way you won't need a coop bd's approval, otherwise, if your parents are willing, then that may be the only choice you have if you want to buy that particular coop.

Good luck

Looking at your numbers there is a wide range in the numbers , although new construction does sell for more the difference is not a lot , the appraiser still has to justify the value based upon the recent sales in the neighborhood., so if your are willing to pay a premium on a property because you may love the house . The bank if you are looking for a mortgage will go through the appraisal based on there guidelines . You are welcome to down load a home buyers guide from my web site. God luck ... more
