The best advice any Broker can give you is to do a drive around the neighborhood and decide that for yourself. Not only do Fair Housing Laws prohibit us from answering such questions, its more or less un ethical and could be bias, so again do the research on such areas yourself. This ensures that you make the best and most educated decision for you and your family. If you need representation either on the Buying or Selling end, please feel free to give me a call as i am a local broker and a rather knowledgable one too. I also come backed by the Number #1 brokerage in all of the Bronx. No one knows Real Estate like Exit Realty Search.

Hope this helps,

All the Best,

The closing time, will invariably be determined by YOUR LENDER.
Unless you contractually obligate YOUR LENDER to pay penalties if they miss the closing date, they remain in the driver seat.
The lender a buyer chooses has significant influence on the competiveness of their purchase offer and imposes significant cost to the seller should the lender go goofy.
Natorious lenders like Chase, Bank of AMerica and Wells Fargo have a well established track record regarding the folly of a 30 day closing.
Regarding your specific situation, more information would be needed. Your agent is your best resource. If you ignored their lender suggestion, what happens regarding the 30 day close is on you.

Best of success,

If you are looking to buy bank owned properties it is best that you find a licensed realtor who has worked with this type of properties before. They will be able to give you the best advice on this matter.

Good afternoon Dee,

Here's some insight that might help you along the way. I’m no real estate agent, just a humble Mortgage Banker, but I can give you some guidance on your search for the right rental apartment.

In my experience in the real estate trade, I’ve discovered that the consumer is best served by adopting some simple strategies, whether you’re buying a home, selling one, or renting an apartment.

First: remember that real estate agents work on commission. The better quality agents---and those with the most experience---will be testing you from the initial contact to determine if you’re serious and will commit to using their services. Why? Because real estate is like any other business. You don’t get to stand in line at the fast food restaurant just to stare at the menu without actually buying some food at one point. It’s the same idea: the experienced real estate professional has to earn a living by renting apartments to serious and qualified prospective renters.

Therefore, the smart consumer should be well-prepared and committed to respecting the real estate professional’s time. That means: know your requirements for the apartment you wish to rent in terms of location, amenities (one bedroom versus three bedrooms; elevator building or private house), and location (proximity to public transportation or need for parking), and price. If you present yourself as well-prepared you’ll have a better chance of working with an experienced agent who will work hard to find you the right apartment.

Second, start with the internet---especially stay “local.” Don’t think at real estate agent in Brooklyn can find you an apartment in Queens, or vice versa. Here on you can easily find a local professional by clicking on “FIND a PRO” at the top of this page. There you can hone in on a seasoned professional in exactly the area where you wish to rent your apartment. TRULIA provides exceptional tools to help you as a consumer understand the quality of the professional you’re working with. Read the agent’s profile; check out the recommendations from previous clients; get to know the level of experience of the agent and the areas that agent covers.

Third, real estate agents are prevented by Federal regulations from answering certain types of questions. They cannot discuss schools or school districts, crime statistics, and a variety of other issues prohibited by Fair Housing regulations. If your agent is vague when you ask certain types of questions, now you know why.

Finally, demonstrate your level of seriousness to your real estate agent. Show up on time for your appointments to view apartments. If you’re required to submit documents for the Landlord to review with your rental application, get them into your agent’s hands pronto. Not only does this help you potentially get one step ahead of a competing renter, but you’ll be viewed by the Landlord as a responsible renter. Landlords prefer responsible renters, don’t they?

I hope that helps you improve the results of your search for an apartment, and helps you with a better quality experience.
