Google "NY City ACRIS" - this will give you the link to the database of coop sales. Not only you'd be able to see all the selling prices, you can also see where the buyers in the particular coop had obtained their morgage from. Then call the bank.

You've come to a great spot to find someone to help you. In addition to the people you meet here on Trulia, ask your friends and family who they have used in the past and what their experience was all the way through closing. Whatever you do, make sure you speak with someone who is on top of the increasing number of changes in the lending industry. Standards are changing it seems like hourly so you don't want to work with someone who brokers mortgages part-time.

Dear Hannah,

I'd love to sit down and chat with both of you to complete a thorough Prequalification. I'm a Local Mortgage Banker and I've been helping HomeBuyers for 22+years here in the NY Metro region.

In the Prequalification meeting we'll review the building blocks of a successful mortgage application: IAC or Income, Assets, and Credit. Then we can determine the loan programs we can offer you and the programs that are the best fit depending on your family's goals and financial lifestyle. I'll also guide you through the entire process of buying a home, from finding a great local Realtor, to making an offer, home inspections, contract signing, loan process and closing. My clients get a personalized "First Time Buyer's Seminar."

I'm accessible seven days a week and I make house calls, so give me a call today and we can get you on your way to homeownership!
