How are you? I hope you're doing well. With that sunny Florida weather down there I'm sure you're not missing the snowflakes that fell here in NYC today, lol
My condolences on the passing of your Uncle. It sounds like his apartment is in a great location and that's what it's about here in NYC... location, location, location. Everybody you speak to will have a different opinion about market trends but not everybody's two cents is valuable. I recently had a customer put in an offer for an apartment that I had taken her to see when it was 20 degrees outside and raining so there's really no time like the present to start marketing your apartment.
I would be happy to list the apartment for you and set everything up so you won't be inconvenienced with having to travel to NY. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time :-)

In my 12 years as a broker in Manhattan, I have always found winter to be the busiest selling season. Our Spring begins early here. Bonuses are given out the beginning of the year so many buyers have cash for down payments. Unlike most markets where they primarily sell houses and curb appeal is so important most houses look better in the spring because the front lawns are in full bloom.
As others agents mentioned we have an inventory shortage. In fact, I received an invitation from another broker for an event here in Manhattan this week that will have agents from the "Burbs" Westchester and Long Island discussing heir communities including commute times, average home prices, real estate taxes, schools and lots more.
The idea is to bring our clients thinking of moving to towns in Westchester and Long Island because inventory levels in Manhattan are at an all-time low. So we need people to move!!
I strongly suggest you contact Nick Rafello, S.V.P. Associate Broker, The Corcoran Group who answered below. He specializes in Washington Heights and his team is number one in Upper Manhattan. You couldn't be in better hands.
There are things needed and you may or may not have them readily available. Those would be the Offering Plan and the building's Financials. These are important because it is customary to send the documents to the customers Attorney so he can do his due diligence. If you don't have these documents, they will need to be obtained through the buildings managing agent.
One nice thing is electronic signatures are now legal in New York and would make signing for exclusive representation a pice of cake.
The company I work with has tremendous marketing reach. If you are interested to know what Coops are selling for in the building and neighborhood, please feel free to contact me for a no obligation comparable market report and consultation. Thank you and good luck.

Nothing is all good and nothing is all bad. Need the apartment sold? Put it on the market.
Need a good Realtor in the area to handle it? I will be happy to refer you to some great Realtors.
Either way, best of luck...list it NOW!
I live in Washington Heofhts, and know Haven Avenue well. Inventory is low across the city, and I'm seeing more buyers now than I have in some time. I would advise listing it sooner than later at a price that speaks to the condition and what the compatibles say. Lending rates are still in an attractive place for most first-time buyers.
Why don't you give me a call or email me to discuss more?

In the spring and summer there are usually more choices, so buyers can pick and chose more...
My specialty is Washington Heights, where Haven Ave is. I also live here as well. I'd be glad to discuss all options with you.
