Hello Christine. Congratulations on your decision to make that big purchase. It is a great time to do so. If you need assistance in your search, you should consider working with a Real Estate Agent who could better assist you. Additionally, you could also check out http://www.mlsli.com
for available co-op's and Realtor's. You could also check the local newspapers, and other local print ads for availability.
Also remember to get your team in place, including your Realtor. This would include a mortgage advisor who could help with pre-approval if financing, and a Real Estate Attorney for the closing process.
I hope this answered your question! If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by the ways below.
Wishing you all the best,
