There is a lot more to your question than you may realize. What is the condition of the HOA? What is the size of the unit? (is it a studio that can be converted to a 1br unit or is it a 1 br unit)?

There is a list of other question I can likely list.

Consult the services of a realtor and attorney to help you in the buying process.

Hello Jenny,

If you like your neighborhood and the basement is dry, I would update.

However, if you don't want to deal with 6 months of noise, contractors, and dust, you should give it a fresh coat of paint and buy something that is move-in condition.

Sincerely,
John Meyers

Hello Diane,

It is very unusual for a building to charge different valet prices depending on if the driver is an owner vs. renter.

However, every building is different. -- The thing to do is ask the building management and view the building's bylaws.

Sincerely,
John Meyers

Rufusdude answered:
How long after the contract was initiated does the buyer have to ask for repairs from their home inspection? Does the request have to be in writing (I would think so) or if the realtor says, let me know what repairs you might make", can be considered a legal request for repairs, she (realtor) is serving as seller/buyer. ... more

Joe Schiller answered:
caps are good business sense, renters are transitional and do not have long term consciousness around best practices for building profitability. I think most buildings do not have the slightest idea what the real world demands and are losing money every day because the investment by the association is not founded in resale. ... more

JOEL HOLLAND answered:
Foreclosure prices in just the near north area are up 12.2% in the past year, while number of listing available are down 43%. And, they are also closing within 4.6% of final list price, vs 8% a year ago. So, the buyers experience in foreclosures today is very different than the last few years. It is important to have an understanding of the condition, what true costs there are (i.e. increased closing costs, back due assessments or taxes).
If getting financing, you also need to have strong financing to compete with the many cash buyers competing for the same limited inventory.

Unfortunately at that price point it may be difficult to get what you're looking for. As others have said, Craigslist might be the best option.
