Well depending on the conditon of the property, it could definately affect the resale value, many new home buyers find it hard to see potential in an unfurnished space. it may sit on the market longer if it is not up to standard with comparables in the area, a small investment may give a larger return , I'd love to take a look at the apartment, and could definately assist you in listing the property and helping to decide which route would be best and most efficient and profitable for you. or you can call me at 718.791.5427 Best of Luck, look forward to hearing from you,

In coop buildings, you own a percentage versus a specific unit. Financing on coop units is different than on traditional condos. In San Francisco there are only a few coop buildings. Coops are more popular on the East Coast.

Feel free to call me at 415-200-7202.

It would depend on the the rules of the cooperative and also whether your loan would restrict you to have the apartment as your primary residence. Usually investment loans require a higher percentage down payment and sometimes a higher interest rate. ... more

I can recommend you speak to Sue Becker of Home Capital Network. (I just spoke to her) You can email her at or call her at 908-723-1180. Just spoke to her and though they do co-op loans, there are not many options out there.

Let me know how it works out :)

Hi, Raffles,
It's great that you know where you want to live and what your budget is. There are two things to do now. You need to be pre-approved by a lender and you need to begin working with a skilled, experienced agent to assist you with your purchase. The reason having your own buyer's agent is so important is because the listing agent works for the seller. You really want a pro on your side, looking out for your interests. We streamline your search, negotiate on your behalf, take you through each step of the buying process to a successful conclusion.

Typically, yes, it's harder, but not necessarily more expensive. There's no such thing as an identical condo and co-op, though...Since one is ownership in real property, one is ownership of shares in a corporation...
Reach out to me directly if you wish, for a proper consultation. I have the experience in both New York and New Jersey.
Best regards,

Hollin Hills is a fabulous neighborhood and is heavily targeted by saavy home buyers who understand the architecture. I know the neighborhood very well and live roughly 2 miles away in Riverside Gardens. Hollin Hills feeds into Hollin Meadows Elementary School which offers an excellent tech/science focus. It is a fantastic area. I would be happy to discuss the neighborhood at length and provide you with detailed information regarding resale values and appreciation as a general rule in this very special corrridor of Alexandria South.

Dear Hfahmad:

Clinton Hill is one of the hottest areas in Brooklyn right now with plenty of room for growth of property values. Nobody can predict the future with 100% accuracy, but I think the area it is a very safe and good investment opportunity right now. As far as the rental covering your costs, it also depends on how much the maintenance is.

On a side note, I just listed a 4 story 2 family home in the area, they are asking $1,200,000, this link will take you to the virtual tour:

Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Good luck!

We don't predict the future, only God knows the answer to this question. What we can tell you is whether the area is generally stable as compared to other neighborhoods. The economic makeup of a community. The level of education, average incomes, family statistics etc. This is precisely why you should form a relationship with a respected realtor who is willing to invest the time and effort in providing you with the correct tools and information to assist you in becoming an informed buyer. People who do this really do better not only in their purchase choices, but in negotiating all the areas of pursuing the purchase of a property. This includes helping to pick the right lender, inspector, attorney etc. A trained monkey can point out a kitchen, living room, bathroom etc. But, proper guidance, and information to help you achieve your goals in invalueable, and requires a good deal of experience. An example I can give you, On a few occasions, couples came to me thinking that they wanted to purchase in certain areas of Queens. However, after listening to the lifestyle needs and wants they had, I showed and subsequently sold them homes in Long Island for the same amount monthly they would have spent in Queens with much larger properties in better condition then Queens and with community amenities (golf, swimming, parks and recreation, Libraries, etc.) they either couldn't find in the communities they were considering or would have had to pay a lot for inqueens.

There is no average monthly maintenance charge for 2 bedrooms. Condos have common charges. Coops have a monthly maintenance. They vary across the board. Increases also vary based on the coop's management, debt structure and size. If you need specific help finding affordable 2 bedroom living options, consult a realtor.

Don Tepper answered:
It'll really vary depending on location. A local Realtor could give you a pretty precise number. One item that can substantially affect closing costs is whatever transfer tax may be imposed by the city or county. Sometimes it's almost nothing; sometimes it's in the range of 1%; sometimes it's more.

Recognize, too, that some costs are pretty much the same regardless of the price you're paying. A home inspection, for instance, will vary a bit. But (at least where I am) you could pay $350 for a home inspection for a $100,000 property and not too much more for a $1 million property. Meanwhile, other costs--such as PMI--depend on how much you're putting down.

The closing costs shouldn't differ substantially if it's a condo. I'm less familiar with co-ops.

Again, check with a local Realtor.

Hope that helps.

Janet Nation, CBR answered:
Absolutely not. You typically need to be working for a minimum of two years at the same job or at least in the same field if there is a break in employment. In addition to income, the lender will need to look at your credit history, debt to income ratio (that is, how much debt you have in relation to your income and the property you propose to buy). Congratulations on your graduating soon. ... more
