Hey Peter,

Purchasing a Co-op can be quite frustrating. From the due diligence to the Board Review. As for the pricing it all depends on what the Comparative Market Analysis says. A licensed real estate agent should run some numbers and see what the market is like in that area.

Bay Ridge itself is a hot neighborhood. It always was and always will be. I am born and raised in Brooklyn so I'm very familiar with the area.

You also might want to keep in mind that not everyone prices properties correctly. Thats why I always suggest any buyer to get an agent to represent them. Please feel free to contact me if you are still looking. I'd love to help.
