When you first relocate, just rent a ROOM from someone to buy you a month or two to get the references that you will need for a permanent location. craigslist, trulia, hotpads, etc all have cheap, nice lodgings available that would do for temp housing and an address to re-establish your credentials. ... more

IGNORE the out of state replies as they have no idea what happens in NYC. First, do you have a binder or a contract? Next, in NYC, houses NEVER have water in the basements unless you have a home along the waterfront in Staten Island, the Rockaways in Brooklyn or Bay Ridge for example. If your home is in Queens, the chances of flooding is 0. Therefore, if you want to avoid flooding problems don't buy in southern Brooklyn along the waterfront or along the waterfront in Staten Island.

NYC does get heavy rains at times but the flooding issues is minor. However, when Hurricane Sandy visited us, every home along the waterfront was damaged by Sandy.

Brooklyn Law is in downtown Brooklyn - Subway Stop is Jay Street Metro Tech Station. NYU is in the Village near Washington Sq Park. My take is find a place in Lower East Side, for the convenience and diversity. It's a very vibrant and hip place to live in. Chinatown, little Italy are all there. My Son and his roommate are graduates of NYU and Parson and they love it there. Studio will go for approx $2500 (or less). 1 Bedrm will vary from $2200-$3000 depending on location and condition. Watch out for the Fees that the Pro's are putting out and don't get caught last-minute at signing the Contract. 12% (1.5 mo) Commission fee is not the same as 1-month (8.3%) fee. ... more

Hi Kim, I've actually just started my search as well so maybe we can help each other :-)

I'm looking in lower Manhattan primarily, thinking on going full in for a 3 bed and at least a 2 bed. But I'm worried we may be limited to co-ops because condo's have gone up so much in the past several years.

Are there any tips on how to get an apartment at a better price? Sponsor units? Also, same question with the buyers' agents, what's the downside? I haven't agreed to sign anything with any agents trying to work with me on the buy side, what's there to lose if I have them show me some listings? Makes sense as I'm busy at work anyway right?

Hi Benjamin,

You can actually qualify for a VA or FHA mortgage 12 months into your chapter 13 BK so if your BK has already been discharged, you can apply right now.

You have to show re-established credit and you have to meet the minimum credit score requirements.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.
