Often if your offer is considerably lower than the asking price the sellers agent will know that the seller will not accept your offer especially if they have activity at a higher number. If for instance, I'm selling a property for 350K and I have offers of 270K to 300k which the seller has turned down. Now you come along and offer 200K. Do I know weather the seller will entertain your offer and dismiss the higher ones, of course I do. So, I guess it all depends on the circumstances. That said, if it were me and I was determined, which I usually am, I would fax the offer to the agents broker regardless what the agent said to me. Most brokers "MOST" know their responsibilities, and value their licenses. ... more

The question can best be answered by management, therefore consider a call; for any necessary legal advice, consult with an attorney who specializes in real estate.

Only the person who owns the unit/shares can control whether it gets sold or not unless maintenance charges and/or mortgage goes unpaid. I recommend consulting an attorney regarding the establishment of a special needs trust, as well. There might be a way to transfer rights to co-op shares to your sibling and an attorney will be able to guide you through this. ... more

Good Afternoon Propga. You should consult with a Real Estate Attorney immediately. If you want to stay in your co-op, take all actions to do so. I cannot give you legal advise, however I always advice individuals in any situation such as yours, the sooner you seek counsel, the faster the problem can be rectified.

I hope this answered your question! If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by the ways below.

Wishing you the best of luck,

When purchasing a co-op taxes are included in the monthly maintenance fee, and they do vary complex by complex; if asking about a specific property, check out www.mlsli.com

Hi Propga,

By rent, are you referring to the maintenance charges for the co-op?

Check to see what is included in the maintenance fee. Generally gas for heat and cooking is included, but does not have to be.

You will also be obligated for your electric usage (if not included in the maintenance), phone and cable bills, YOUR mortgage and YOUR home insurance as well as any other personal services you sign on for.

You MAY also be obligated for your share of any general or specific assessment fees that may (or may not) be applicable. Sometimes instead of increasing the maintenance fees a co-op organization will assess additional fees for a limited time (perhaps a couple of years) to cover extraordinary expenses such as increased heating bills (if heat is included in the maintenance), additional costs due to clearing the premises of snow (during extremely snowy winters), repairs that were not anticipated, etc. If such fees have been assessed, they become your obligation and will be collected with the monthly maintenance.

The management company of any co-op will be able to answer your questions as to exactly what is covered in the monthly maintenance fee and whether there are any special assessments currently in effect or anticipated in the near future.

Please contact me if you would like additional information about co-op maintenance fees and/or have questions regarding a specific co-op unit.

Regards,
Arlynn

hi smallhouse, you have received some good information, some not so good. The first thing I would address is the credit and your scores to see if there are any ways to get your scores higher. In general, higher scores equate to better rates until you are over 740 scores. We at Home Savings of America offer credit repair and rapid rescoring with no charge to our borrowers! In some cases, we have improved a borrower's scores by over 100 points!

The next aspect of your loan application to address is what type of downpayment can you afford? If you are able to put down 20%, in most cases, Fannie and Freddie products are best. Almost without exception, lenders across the US require 740 for the best Fannie or Freddie rates. However, especially if you are putting down 10% or less, FHA is the only game in town, and most FHA lenders require only a 660 score for their best rates, although some lenders do offer discounts for higher scores.

Next, should you both be on the loan? Well, if you get you and your husband's scores over 740, and you can put down the 20%, sure. Other than that, an analysis of your incomes vs credit scores vs downpayment amount will dictate whom to include on the loan application. As you can tell, FHA is more forgiving AND requires a much lower credit score...that might be your fall back. In any case, you both may be on the title of the home without adversely affecting your loan application or rate!

Get in contact with a great lender and go over your options based on today's scores, and discuss credit rescoring based on what the lender thinks if your scores can be increased significantly. Many times, paying a lower downpayment and using the extra money to pay off other debt is smarter than putting more down on the home.

These days, rather than choosing a local mortgage broker, working with a national bank that offers products from twenty other major lenders in the US gives you a much broader choice in products and rates. Add to that the ability to raise your credit scores, many times within 72 hours, you allow your husband and yourself the most options to choose from.

Best wishes and good luck in your home search! Jim Ryan, Home Savings of America. 703 591 5626 ext 419.

Hello, I agree with Anna. I would first see a mortgage professional. He/she will be able to tell you exactly what monthly payment works best with your financial situation....you don't want your quality of life to be negatively affected post purchasing a home. Also, you don't want to get out there and fall in love with a home you may not be able to purchase.
To answer your question...East Rockaway has many homes available in the $285,000 - $350,000 range. Too many to mention here....Browse around East Rockaway...go to my website....www.Maria4home.com
