I guess buying a forclosure home is the same as buying a non for closure, you will need to choose and process some needs , comply requirements to win the home.

Chelsea and Tribeca are neighborhoods IN Manhattan!

Manhattan is one of the 5 "boroughs" that make up NYC.

There are a number of other wonderful options/neighborhoods for you...........but it all may come down to your price range!

I think you really need to speak with a Manhattan agent in order to understand where the neighborhoods are, and what they offer............

Oh, just saw you asked this in July - hope you found something by now!

Public transportation in Chelsea is exceptional! Most apartments in Chelsea are just a few minutes away from the ACE, NQR, & 123 trains, as well as crosstown buses. Hopstop is a great website/smartphone app that allows you to get free directions for public transportation anywhere in the city! ... more

Joseph Hastings answered:
Hello sir. while your budget will not allow the best selection, it is possible to find one bedroom Coop apartment on the higher end of your price scale. A Condominium will out-price your budget. There are a number of things to be aware of. The downpayment, application fees, maintenance proration, Attorney, work history, post-closing liquid assets, etc.

I strongly suggest you work with a broker. I would be glad to set up an appointment to discuss the purchase process at your convenience in my office. Feel free to contact me through Trulia. All the best.

2 bedroom apartments for $1,000 & under? Tales - depends on who is telling the tale. There aren't any current market value prices near that and even for popular boroughs like brooklyn and queens is tough if you want closer to manhattan. Research the market before you start looking at ads.

Ann Zemaitis answered:
While many people have given great answers, there are some factors I hope you consider and if you need help researching I'll be happy to help you.

What affects price:
First, a one bedroom can be anywhere from small to large.
Second, the type of building and services it has (or doesn't have) in it also varies-- think walk up, what floor, elevator, and/or doorman building.
Third, proximity to subway(s), or stores like Whole Foods, can also affect price. In other words, Chelsea can be considered 16th St. and 9th Ave. (which is almost Meat-Market) or 28th St. and 10th Ave. The desirability of one location over the other can be argued.
Fourth, whether it is a co-op or condo and its maintenance or cc (carrying charges)/ RET (Real Estate taxes) monthly affects your payment monthly and it can vary a lot.
Fifth, are there assessments coming up for any major repairs in the building (or existing) and how is the reserve fund (cash on hand for repairs).

In other words, if you pick a small walk-up one bedroom on a high floor far away from a subway it will cost you a lot less than a large one bedroom or loft style one bedroom (in say, the O'Neill building) in elevator, full service relatively new condo.

All of that said, in any given building, in my opinion the best way to figure current pricing and value is by looking at recent comparable sales. I have access to closed sales in a building if you find any in particular that you like. Just email me and I'll send you the data of what's sold, when, and what's on the market.

And, for first time buyers I rebate 10% of my commission at closing. In other words, if you bought a $600,000 place, your rebate (paid out of my commission which is paid by seller) ranges from about $1500-$1800 depending on the listing commission. I primarily specialize in Downtown.

Best of luck. I'm here if you need me,
