It is important to have insurance for the REPLACEMENT cost of your home and belongings. There are no "cookie cutter" polices since every individual policy is unique. You should consult with a couple of insurance companies and work with the one you feel most comfortable with. ... more

Yes, it is possible- in a walk-up building. The total square footage will be equal to the square footage of a two bedroom though. The landlord might just have built a wall to turn the unit to a three bedroom apt. to get more money from tenants.
Check Insurent.com, it is helpful when you do not have a cosigner.
Good luck.

Hello Gloria, are you looking to buy as an investment or live-in? That is huge because it can narrow the search down significantly. I have some questions to better answer yours. Email me at nardeen@rapartnersny.com.

Yes; please understand certain requirements need to be met in order to obtain an apartment here in NYC. Feel free to touch base so I can go over the criteria in hopes of eliminating some of the stress in searching for a home. Also, if I cannot find you a No Fee apartment I can certainly work with you on commission as I'd prefer to earn a relationship.

Regards,

Michael

A home value can be determined by comparing recent home sales,homes presently on the market and the ones that failed to sell, it is a best guess.

The true value of a home is what the a buyer will pay, and the seller will accept. ... more

No fee means you don't have to pay a broker fee to secure the rental. You will only be responsible for your portion of the rent and utilities.

Elena Ravich, Esq. answered:
It may be by mistake or it may be a marketing trick by a listing agent, since condos are more popular and their price is in general 35-40% higher.
To make sure the apartment is a condo, you should see 2 separate monthly charges there in the listing, common charges and real estate tax. Coops only have maintenance charge.
You can also ask your agent to verify all the info. This is what we are for. Would be glad to help you in your search.

Elena Ravich, Esq. answered:
The IRS lets you write off the property taxes on your second home. However, the way that you use your second home will determine how you write it off. If if is truly a personal residence, which means that you rent it out fewer than 14 days a year, you can write it off with the property taxes on your first house. If it is rented out more than 14 days a year, you must allocate the deduction by the percentage of personal use and rental use. ... more

Albert Moeller answered:
Avoid the issue to begin with by taking plenty of photos BEFORE you move in your furniture. Take another (identical) set of photos after you've moved out, just before you close the door forever. Whether or not you took those photos, follow your local laws to challenge your ex-landlord's claims. ... more

Hi, Use cabinet and closet organizers as much as possible. You may also consider furniture that have multiples uses.

Alphabet City's street parking is very hit or miss. Yes, there is street parking, but it is often hard to find a parking spot when you need one. It is purely luck if you are able to find someone pulling out of a spot as you are driving by. In terms of parking garages, the nearest is located between Avenue A and Avenue B on East 11th Street. ... more
