I lived there a long time ago when it was a rental building. My apartment was burglarized and the burglars escaped through the fire escape door that led from inside my apartment to the back of the building. My parking space was next to the dumpster which was always overflowing by Sunday night. There was absolutely no guest parking. There were roaches, and I couldn't wait until my lease was up to get out of there. ... more

You know when you buy a co op you are buying stock in a corporation. You are not buying mortar and brick. The importance of relationships skyrockets when the importance of the board and its members and the decision making power over the desires of a buyer. It is really sound advice to try not to offend anybody or even draw attention. They move at their speed and when so (negatively disposed) will slow things down. Why? You know its many things, most of all they can! The idea is to understand the lay of the land. Do what they say, they like that. Its like the shortest between two points. Let him be and get job done. More you badger him, the longer you wait. Good luck and your Realtor should be telling you all these things. ... more

Are you working with a Realtor on your side, if you are buyer or renter you need to work with a buyers agent on your side. Commit to one Realtor who then will work in your best interest and protect your
interests and guide you through the entire buying process with expertise and experience....
You will get a market evaluation before making an offer, and you get all your questions answered
like some of those above..... all the fees, the condo doc, what is required by the board, how far to
the stations etc.

The buyers agent will work for YOU and his or her services are free to you as in most if not all cases
they get paid by the seller's side at the closing table out of the seller's proceeds.

Good luck to you.....

Sincerely yours,

You should probably start searching and getting familiar with the areas you might be interested in right now. You should begin your actual search in May/June. If you find something you really love and its available in July and you're not available until can always try to negotiate it with the hope that if you have great credit and good references, the landlord will consider waiting until Aug for you. If not, at least you'll have a head start on looking and knowing what the market bears. If you establish yourself with one agent, they can start to send you listings, and you'll get a real feel for what's out there.

Brenda Feria answered:
Anyone brave enough to tackle the real estate market as a new agent these days probably has enough moxy to succeed. It is not for the faint of heart or those who are impatient. Did I mention that you have to have money? Yes. It will take a couple of years to establish yourself and feel secure that you can make a living at this business. You need to have a nest egg to tide you over until you begin seeing closings and checks coming your way. Many who obtain their realtors' licenses are out of the business within a year. ... more

Don Cummins, Esq. answered:
Another good choice is to dive through the neighborhood in the evening, visit the school during school hours (most schools will even give tours if contacted in advance.) You can also stop by the local courthouse during the local court trial/hearing day and see what kind of matters are going on (normal teenage and traffic issues or lots of drug and serious crime matters) Hope that helps ... more
