Sure, your buyer's agent can call the listing agent for more color and float the number by the listing agent to see if it's in the ballpark.

Then you can submit a more formal offer (see link below for what should be in a complete offer submission) that the listing agent can forward to his seller client.

Remember, nothing is final anyway until both parties sign the contract!

Susie's reply below is wrong and incorrect. Obviously being a Texan she doesn't understand New York City real estate. New York City limits the powers of realtors and requires all transactions to be closed by attorneys.
You can fire your lawyer and hire a different one. Hopefully you also have a realtor involved in this transaction.

Our house is from 2011 but someone between Campo and their contracted electrician got greedy. The electrical line from the meter is undersized - its ~250ft to the house and anyone with electrical knowledge knows there's going to be a resistance over larger distances, so we're getting spikes/drops in the electric by ~15%. It's ruining the appliances and we have to drop ~$5k on getting it upgraded. We also called up Campo about buying the lot next to us. They said they won't sell it, they'll build even if it's a rental. 3 months later, another builder comes by saying he bought it from Campo, who was nice enough to sell to us. Screw these guys. The houses are nice overall but you can't trust the people. Keep an eye on everyone involved in the build and do your research. ... more

Hello There,

I am glad you were able to resolve your domestic issues. I think it is a good time to start over. My recommendation is to contact a reputable Mortgage Loan Officer. He/she will be able to measure your financial situation and if needed will help you with patching up any "financial hick ups".
Good luck in your new start.

NYC coop sublet policies vary by building. In addition, each building usually charges shareholders some sort of additional sublet fee on top of the standard application fee, credit/criminal background check fees and move-in/move-out deposits (

If you are looking for the optionality to sublet your coop, then I'd suggest you look for a more flexible building. Laid-back coops will also have a less rigorous board package application process.

You can ask your buyer's agent to research the buildings and sublet policies for each coop you are interested in. Hopefully your broker is also offering you a NYC buyer agent commission rebate.

Good luck!
