Kathy Burgreen answered:
The issue is most co-op buildings will not allow foreigners to live in them unless they are legal residents with a green card or permanent residency status. Does your sister have permanent residency or green card? I bet she does and that is how she was able to buy her co-op. Every resident in a co-op building needs to be approved by the co-op Board. They will not accept you because you are a foreigner.

The other issue is co-op Boards want buyers who can use their own money for the down payment + their own money to pay the monthly maintenance fees.

Antolin Du Bois, CFP® answered:
Both are good choices. If the view is on the Hudson in Washington Heights, I'd take it, otherwise I'd go with Astoria. The commute from Astoria to Midtown is like 1/2 the commute from Washington Heights, and it is easier probably to rent it out later in Astoria. Matter of fact, I recently saw a blurb on TV that said that buying in Astoria can be cheaper than renting, which obviously makes Astoria a better deal from the financial pov.

Unless, of course, you got views of the Hudson...

Hi Doreen, the longest I have seen is 180 days after the expiration of a listing- my understanding is if you were in negotiations already before the contract expired.- that would be on the second page of your listing agreement under Compensation paragraph #7. Also- does not apply at all if you have relisted with another agency. For your specifics call me Terry K 718-614-3167 cell or email me ... more

Hi Val

If you are a FSBO (For Sale By Owner) you do have other options to market your home with or without a broker.
Contact me and I will be happy to discuss them with you. I can also help you find the true value of your home since I am a NYS Certified Residential Appraiser.

Good Luck!

Ralph Windschuh answered:
You can check out but I would have a realtor come over, look at your place, and give you their thoughts on the value of the property. Even with coops, the prices may vary somewhat depending on location, floor, condition, updates, etc. I would be pleased to assist you. Feel free to contact me anytime.

Good luck.
