Good Afternoon Barri,

Hope this message finds you well.

There are several factors that affect the price of any unit available for sale in Skyview or any complex. Contact me via phone or email to discuss what properties are selling for in the area.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

Skyview was allowing section 8 for a long time and the parking there is horrendous. The property value is way out of whack possibly do to such high inflation and people want a Riverdale address for the status rather then quality of living

Some of these buildings were allowing a non licensed so called plumbers to replace the shower valves and they are very lax in asking to see a contractors license as we see trucks from all over the place including other states working in these buildings

As SkyView is getting older there is going to be major plumbing problems already being seen and there maybe an assessment coming to help pay for these much needed repairs, roofing pointing and main drains in the garage

The co op tries to get the stock holders to do plumbing repairs although the tenants are paying maintenance not rent. Do your homework before considering buying into this crowded money pit

Good morning there are coops near St. Barnabas Church. The link you have attached is for a 2 bedroom in North Riverdale. There are also two bedroom Coops on Riverdale Ave, Fieldston Road, Netherland Avenue and Arlington Avenue.

As a plumbing contractor located in Riverdale (10471) some of the studio apartments I serviced were just used as love nests or people who lived out of the area but hated the idea of living in Manhattan or buying a home in this area as many are very high priced ,

Consider it as a town house without the house and living in a big closet.

The prices some of these folks ask are in my opinion outrageous to live in an apartment building than the CO -OP owner is responsible for the piping even those in the wall CRAZY but true in some cases.

When thinking of buying a co op as the board interviews you you had better do research in their finance ask how old the building is as many are well over 40 years and the life dependency of the plumbing system is just about up

Also if the buildings need pointing or a new roof think about the assessment you may face

Does the building contain asbestos? Radon? How many stock holders are in arrears as unemployment is very high

Renting an apartment a private house is a consideration as many of the 2 or 3 family homes in Riverdale (10471) and Kings bridge (10463) have tenants for over 20 years

I rented out of of my apartments that has 9 rooms 9' -3" ceilings 2 full bathrooms, their own laundry room new kitchen appliances including dishwasher for under $1,600 a month and they can expect no increase in their rent as long as they want to live here

Many people rather have a great tenant and take a lot less money then the so called going rate .. Just shop around

In today's market its hard to predict,howver based on many properties that I have sold even in a down market most have held their value so far. From here on in because of the tough banking requirements I believe things can only go up. We are already seeing an increase in home sales and values also going up.
Please feel free to call me if I can assist you further (914 589 2455)
