Hi Vickie!
Double check with your management what is a sublet policy in your building. Usually its after 2 years, but some buildings has even after 1 year. You can request from them the sublet application. Pay attention to application fee and the amount of documents they require from potential tenant and how long the management take to review the application. I can help you to determine what is better for you to rent or sell in todays market. Right now a lot of people looking to purchase because of first time home buyer tax credit but still some people looking for rent.
Feel free to contact me for highest price analysis directly: 718-781-3074

Hi Vicki. Check your house rules for the sub-let policy. Most Coops will allow a sub-let but there may be conditions imposed by the board in order for you to do so. Unless you have an extremely liberal board, sub-letting may become it's own problem as the application process may be equivalent to the purchase process. With all the fees usually imposed, a possibly renter may not want to go through the process. Then there is the price of a rental. What do you charge? That would be based on current rents in the area and if you've got a Mortgage, you may have to really think if you can get a good rent price.

If you've owned this coop for quite a while, selling it may be the better option. It will be off your hands and you can move forward with your life unfettered. This is a decision only you can make.

If you want to discuss your options in a more serious way, I invite you to contact me directly and anytime. We can meet to discuss in my office or at a place of your choosing.

The decision is entirely yours--does the complex allow renting to begin with --if so, are you comfortable with the idea of being a landlord and collecting your monthly rent payment, and will you collect enough if you still have a mortgage,and don't forget about maintenance payments, etc. As far as selling, do you have other investments in mind, what does your tax consultant advise you to do as far as saving money, etc. Saving money, fortunately or unfortunately, is all about your lifestyle and choices--again a decision only you can make and opinions are just that.
