The 'buyers market' boat left the dock several years ago.
It is possible to find some deals on certain types of foreclosures.

Based on your choice of financing, you will need to use a specific strategy to lock in the purchase of a foreclosed property. It is time for you to pick up the phone and call a Brooklyn REALTOR. Your REALTOR will have access to all the foreclosed homes available and can also discuss the most effective strategies to use for the financing you have selected.

Best of success,

Read your contract. If she agreed to the terms of the sale, they likely include providing access for inspections etc. If she is trying to change the terms she already agreed to, you can probably get an attorney to write a strong letter demanding specific performance. Whether after your inspections and bids are complete you still wish to proceed with the purchase is up to you. Make sure the attorney includes allowing enough additional time since she has blocked access to do what you need to accomplish to proceed. Best of luck. ... more

Well I currently live here and although yes it has changed alot for the better, it still has issues.....
I grew up around here so I know what used to be of over here, but in my opinion the only change is rent prices, and apt renovations, Ive yet to see "Security" when things happen outside or in the buildings, No noise control....Although its not the most horrible place to live I wouldnt reccomend it to anyone, In my opinion I think as long as the management is willing to accept Section 8 residents there wont be a change....Im currently waiting for my lease to be up... ... more

Hi Dawn,

unfortunately, coop boards do not have to state a reason for not accepting a purchaser's application. While it is understandable that you are upset and are suspicious of the board's motivations, there are legitimate reasons for a board rejecting an application. Common reasons are a purchaser will have insufficient liquid assets after closing to insure their bills will be paid should they lose their job or pets that are unacceptable.

If you are buying a home you should definitely get an inspection so you know what your're buying. The inspector is there to check the plumbing, heating, roof, electric and the foundation of the home. If there are tenants in the property usually before you go to contract you can find out if any units will be delivered vacant or not. If no vacancies then you need to know if there are leases and if so when they end. If the tenants remain and you agree to that in the contract then it will be up to you to end leases or go through the eviction process if the tenants refuse.

I hope this answer helped you.

Hello, I believe 2913 Foster Avenue is a new co-op building in Brooklyn. To check out the crime rate in the area go to and when the summar for the building comes up click on crime rate and you will get a full report of all the mishaps and improvement rate on crime in the area.

If you are looking for a co-op in Brooklyn feel free to call me, it is my specialty. To see coops I have available go to my website below.

I hope these tips have helped you.

Hello, I specialize in coop and home sales full time for three years in Brooklyn. I can definitely advise that you use an agent that knows the ins and outs of dealing with a coop transaction. There are alot of details, paperwork and requirements to be met by the bank and by the coop board. Also in order to sell a coop an agent needs to understand how to explain what a coop is and how it differs from owning other types of properties.

Feel free to give me a call to answer any other questions you may have.
