The Q train (Sheepshead Bay Road Station) is the closet train and you would have to take a bus (the B36) to get to the train station.

I would assume that they either cover different things or they are processed in different ways. I think the best way to find out what the difference is is to talk to an insurance agent. Whatever the difference is, it's important to do what you can to make sure that your home is covered from potential damages. That should be your main focus and concern.

I was recently involved in working a similar valuation puzzle involving a family that had owned a house in Fort Greene since the very early 1900's. It had gone through many passing's of one family member to another without any real probate. And now was being sold on the open market.
It was very enlightening to see in hind sight what a difference something like the Navy Yard closing, the BQE being built etc. makes to property values.
So the answer to a general question such as yours is almost impossible to say without a specific location.
Real Estate really is a local market and cannot be generalized.

In Coop's and Condo's they are part of your monthly common charges or HOA fee's. They help to maintain the building, common areas, lawn and snow removal up keep, and utilities for the common areas as well. This is in your paper work you should have received when you closed on your place. If not call your association and they will send them to you. ... more

Brian Kurtz answered:
I know that this question is older and this property may have sold by now but for those reading in the future let me say that I don't think that the price reduction was very significant. Think about how people search for homes online. They pick an area and they pick price ranges and those ranges that show up in the search boxes are round numbers. Like $100,000 - $150,000 or $150,000 to $200,000.

Pricing the home at or below the $150,000 mark would get a lot more eyes looking at your place.

Depends on just how poor the credit is; also much will depend on the landlord/building, each is different; however you can consider being upfront regarding your credit; be prepared to show proof of employment/pay stubs; possibly pre-pay some of the rent; possibly offer extra security; have some reference letters handy; consider a guarantor, etc. ... more
