There are terrific things to do in the Bronx. The Bronx Zoo, the Botanic Gardens, Wave Hill, enjoying Van Cortlandt Park, and of course Yankee Stadium are just a few.

It will depend on how much of a commute you want to have Ulster County offers many hiking and climbing opportunities I am assuming you want to be near the mountains for those purposes.

You would have access to trains from Poughkeepsie. If you are in the southern end of Ulster you could get the Train in Beacon.

Let me know if I can assist you with finding a home.

They are actually not sold only to companies. To be honest, I would advise going outside of new york. You can purchase tax liens out state. Rates and rules are better outside of NY. They are typically held at either in person or online auctions and individuals can bid and purchase them. Good luck! ... more

That is going to be tight in any major city in the US. When I came to the US 25 years ago (I was in LA) I had $8,000and that was barely sufficient as I searched for work - I supplemented it with part time jobs until I found full time employment. You will need to look at a roommate situation, maybe in New Jersey. If you can find a home-owner looking to find someone to share their home you might be able to keep your move-in expenses down. Depends on how long your job search is going to take - can you start your search from your current location? It is never easy starting new. I wish you Good Luck. ... more

The New York standard for qualifying for an apartment is making a salary 40x your monthly rent or having a guarantor who makes 80x your monthly rent.

First, why are you building a Manhattan real estate website, are you a licensed broker or agent?
If so, there are many "property feeds"; if not, there are still a lot of them, but what is the nature of
your interest -- you just love Manhattan, or you just love property?

Gail Gladstone answered:

This depends on the firm's Broker and their practice.

With the Gladstone Group, (NY, PA, MA & CT), I am happy to bring on part time Realtors and help them develop their business well enough to eventually migrate into full time. This is not mandatory. Some of my part timers are making more money than many full time Realtors.

Do not be put off if you meet up with Brokers who try to disillusion you from doing this.

Depends on the type of loan; FHA loans do require 3.5% dpwn; however for a personalized answer to your question, visit with any licensed loan officer; be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. ... more

For any necessary legal advice do consult with an attorney who specializes in real estate. Review your original related co-op documentation, the answer can most likely be found in the paperwork; generally yes boards can impose a fee; if enough shareholders share your concerns, consider grouping and express your concerns.... ... more

Patrick Fields answered:
This is something that should have been addressed repeatedly in your state required training, but no you can not. Technically, a licensee is sponsored by the broker rather than actually working for or being employed by the broker.

Good luck on your exam!
