Hello Robert,
I see that you are looking to find an apartment in Washington Heights.
I can help you with that so have a look at my listings here and on

As far as your question about safe areas I would suggest going to the local police station and get the data from them.

Have a great day and let me know if you need a broker!!!

The cost of going green is NOT returned when selling a property at this time. Yes, people like the idea of going green, but at this point there are not enough of them willing to pay for it. I think it does make it a bit easier and faster to sell a home, but so would a reduction in the price. I love the idea of using renewable resources and energy efficient construction, but I think the cost/return ratio needs get a bit closer to really make an impact.

Yes there is a catch. It is a Red Flag!

It is one thing to prefer cash but quite another to only accept cash.

1. The building can not get financing
2. The seller priced the property too high and knows it won't appraise and knows a lender will not loan at the sale price.

As an all cash buyer, you will lose your deposit unless you have a financing contingency. It is in the seller's best interest. There are advantages to a buyer that can pay all cash but not when it is required unless it is being sold below market value.

I agree with all the answers, Pre-War is certainly solid constructions and with a good management firm the building will be properly run. The rooms are built larger, the walls and floors are solid, the lobby are usually grand adn wide. Hamiliton Heights was highly sought after in the turn of the century. I'm sure you have a gem, but if you need assistance feel free to contact me for all your real estate needs and best of luck.

Remember to completely read the HOA terms and conditions on all that can and cannot be done with the unit. The CCr's are critical to you.
