One of the 2 bedrooms that closed in May, 2009 had a parking spot - charge was $34/month for the outdoor spot.
There are several 2 bedroom units that are currently for sale that have either indoor garage parking or outdoor spots. The indoor garage parking is $46/month and the outdoor parking is $35/month.
As for a "fair price" for one of the units - so much depends on the location of the building (relative to the pool, train station, etc.), location of the unit (first, second of third floor), whether the building is a 2 or 3 story building, the condition of the interior of the unit (whether the kitchen and/or bath has been renovated and to what extent). These are the reasons that you should actually take a look at several units at varying prices to get a feel for what your money will buy in this complex. Because of both the pool and proximity to the railroad station there is always a demand for these co-ops.
I am a REALTOR for many years as well as a real estate attorney. In the normal course of business, most real estate agents represent the Seller, even when we show homes to Buyers, such as yourself! I am Certified as a Buyer Representative and would like the opportunity to explain in detail what this means and how it will benefit you - the Buyer. In brief, I would work for YOU (the listing agent always works for the Seller) - with fiduciary and confidentiality duties owed to only YOU. Additionally, my job would be to negotiate on YOUR behalf so that you would pay the least amount of money possible for your new home purchase. Please note, it is not necessary to hire me in this capacity - I would enjoy working with you in the way that most real estate agents do - I just think it would be to your advantage to have a REALTOR working on your behalf.
I look forward to hearing back from you, explaining how a Buyer's Representative would be beneficial to you, showing you some properties and working with you to find your new home!
