Prospect Heights is a mixture of architectural styles, some brownstone lined blocks, some beautiful pre-war apartment buildings, some absolutely hideous stuff built between the 60's and the 90's, and the glass and retro look of the stuff that is being built now. Unlike Park Slope, there are more apartment buildings than brownstones. Other than the big avenues: Flatbush, Washington, Vanderbilt, Atlantic and Eastern Parkway, the streets tend to be quiet, with curb parking. It is very green, lots of old trees and window boxes. There aren't really any lawns to speak of, though some of the brownstones have tiny gardens in front or back. Most of the architecture has a victorian or belle epoque feel to it. ... more

Syed Meer answered:
55 Eastern Parkway is a great building on a great block, we live on the same block, closer to Washington... The neighborhood has so much going for it right now that it seems likely that prices will continue to rise (we didn't even really have a drop, just a plateau). Rentals are at a real shortage in the area. If you want a view of the park for a better price, you may want to try the East side of the park (Prospect Lefferts Gardens) as most of the buildings along this block are too far from the park to really give you a view of it. Having said that, we have a view of the Botanical Gardens and Mt. Prospect. ... more

Syed Meer answered:
Lincoln Place is a narrower and less traveled street than the others in the neighborhood, making it easier for criminals to do their work. Also, there are several buildings on the block that are still in transition from rentals to coops that have some unsavory residents. We have a business in the neighborhood and that block has improved significantly in the last few years. ... more

Syed Meer answered:
I live on Eastern Parkway in Prospect Heights and my 12 year old son walks to Grand Army Plaza every day to take the bus to his school at the other end of Park Slope. He's been doing it for over a year, and hasn't had any problems. Of course, he knows to stay on the busier streets and where to go if he is in trouble... It's generally a very safe and community oriented area, where my kids know many of the doormen and shop owners, so they feel secure to move around the neighborhood freely. There is some random mugging and iphone snatching, but that's pretty standard all over the city, and if you are smart you don't put yourself at risk. ... more

Keep in mind that square footage costs do vary, and don't account for location and other considerations; therefore, it's really in your best interest to also review closed recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, and their final sales price... ... more

Mitchell Feldman answered:
Usually if a house does not sell it is because either the asking price is too high or it is not being marketed properly. Other times it can be that the seller is not motivated or there can be a legal issue involving the property. It can also be an error as Jamaal pointed out.

If I can be of further assistance, contact me direct. Good luck!

Kathryn Lilly answered:
Hello;
Keep in mind that this particular apartment is in a co-op so the monthly maintenance (HOA fee) Includes Real Estate Taxes, water & sewer, heat & hot water and builds to the reserve funds to take care of building wide replacements ie: roof etc.)
The monthly charges on Condo's are typically lower because they do not include all that is included in a co-op maintenance.

All the best,

herold_gomes answered:
In order to qualify for a reverse mortgage, all owners and co-owners of the home must be age 62 or older and at least one homeowner must reside in the home as their primary residence at least six months out of the year.

If you have any debt against your home, you must either pay it off before getting a reverse mortgage or use an immediate cash advance from the reverse mortgage to pay it off. If you do not pay off the debt beforehand, or do not qualify for a large enough immediate cash advance to do so, you cannot get a reverse mortgage.

Yes you can deduct expenses, utilities, ect. and not deduct the depreciation.
But just to make sure, check with a tax attorney.
