So you've been looking at this apartment for so long that you let it slip through your fingers, yes? I love this question. As it so happens time, tide and real estate wait for no man. If I were the owner, it would take a cash offer, no, a hugh cash offer with no financial contingency to consider being bought out. For all you know, this might be the current owners dream home in exactly the location they wanted. That is something you can barely put a price on. Send them some mail, see if you can start a conversation and see where it leads. ... more

It all varies from landlord to landlord, it is always better to ask your agent prior to the showing and carry it when you go to see a place so that you can apply rightaway after you like the place.
Good Luck with your search.

Give her an increase and explain you are doing it because of your own increases in the building. If the tenant wants to stay, she will stay. Its very tough to move right now for her so she will pay the increase. Increase it 5% and see what she says. Good Luck! ... more

Zita Lo answered:
Make the renovations for your living purpose but not for selling it as a 2BR. When it comes down to reselling your apt, the smart person that will buy it will purchase it according to how it was originally configured in the offering plan. Will it get you a better price as a 2BR? Depending on how you chop it up. maybe not. Sometimes, it won't even sell because of how impractical the floor plan has been altered. However if the new configuration is well thought of and renovations are well done in terms of materials used, lighting, space, etc., it may get you a tad more than if you sold it as a 1BR. So my practical suggestion is to change it only if you need it for your purpose or for your enjoyment of living and hope for the best on your resale. I would be more than happy to help you if you would want me to render my opinion on your space. Best of luck on your decision!

I agree with Jenet, the answer is no. The Village is and will always be a highly sought after area. There's more co-ops then condos or new development in the area which insulates it from financial issues that a home buyer might have. The price per square feet is holding strong and has not decreased compared to other parts of the city. It's a great area to purchase and it's a great area to live.

Tony Lara answered:
A lot has changed since 2008 when the question was posted. The areas that you inquired about are still exceptional locations in NYC and some of my favorite. Currently prices are holding steady, in Tribeca you can purchase a two bedroom for approx $1.165 million, or a loft for approx $1.360 mill. In the village a convertible three bedroom is priced at approx $1.16 mill..interest rates are low, sellers are nervous, it's a solid buyer's market. There's no free lunch and sellers arent' giving their units away but they are certainly more flexible then in the past. ”. If I may be of service feel free to contact me anytime.

Diary Of A Real Estate Rookie answered:
Of course not.

The problem will come when you want to change the status of the house to sell it.

If you want to sell it as a single family home (more valuable) you'll need to get the certificate of occupancy changed.

If you want to live in it as a single-family but resell as a multifamily, your buyer will wonder what you've done with the two extra kitchens, and will ask that you reinstall them before he/she buys.
