It also depends if you would like to go public or private as well. It is important to take everything into consideration, would you rather pay higher taxes to send them to a better school, or pay less taxes and send them to a good private school. It really is a personal decision that on you as the buyer can research. ... more

Consider working with an agent of your own, he/she will be your best guide. Maintenance does vary from building to building; much depends on size of the unit, and generally includes any underlying mortgage, taxes, common area upkeep, heating etc. If you have specific questions and know who management is, contact them directly. ... more

Dear Lorraine

You will have to check with the listing regarding which type of fees buyer is responsible to pay. This information is usually disclosed in the listing sheet. SInce you are paying cash - the closing cost will be significantly less but that does not mean you will not have any closing costs. If the listing states that the buyers pays the transfer taxes and sellers attorney fees then you are also responsible for this. If you do not have an agent your attorney can also obtain this information for you.

Please do not hesitate to contact me, should you have any additional questions. Good luck on your home search.

In case you didn't know...when it comes to co-ops you don't own real estate. You own a share of stock. Most Co-op boards are strict about pets, wall colors, visitors, renting, etc. They are very picky about who buys so when you go to sell your co-op they will have final say on who you sell it to. If you can afford a Condo, you should look into that. With a condo you are buying real estate. It is your own property. Good luck on your search! ... more
