That's a complicated question Alex, and there are a couple of possibilities, but you should consult an attorney and find out what you are entitled to. If you would like me to refer a Coop attorney to speak with, call me.

Commission fees that are charged are negotiable.
You should contact a few in your area to see; and you should also consider the service you would be getting for the amount charged.

Anna M Brocco answered:
Keep in mind that when using a broker, the commission is negotiable between you and your agent, there are no set standards; therefore why not interview in person a few local agents, from different realty offices, then choose the one you like best and who has the most to offer. Keep in mind that in today's market, pricing and marketing that maximizes your exposure are paramount. ... more

I think you should interview at least 6 Real Estate Agents from your local area and two in the area you are looking to relocate.

Hi Kay,

It's really hard to give or get guarantees on closing dates these days. The conditions above sound about right but there are numerous other things that can slow a closing. The best thing you can do is have your attorney speak with your purchasers attorney. The purchasers attorney should be able to explain what the holdup is to your attorneys satisfaction. I WILL say though, there are no easy closings anymore! Lenders are scrutinizing everyone regardless of how much they have to put down, how long they have been employed, how much money they make etc. There are a lot of guide lines that where ALWAYS on the books at these lenders, but in years past, have been disregarded and/or over looked by the loan officers or the underwriting departments. Now the underwriters are enforcing EVERYTHING and, I think we all can agree, it is necessary in these times. (Annoying…but necessary!)

The best way to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible (even if it really isn't smooth at all) is to choose a Realtor, lender and real estate attorney that has a proven track record and plenty of experience. (Unfortunately, if the other side doesn't do the same, you will feel like you are doing all the work!)

Best of luck to you!

You can put ownership under teh corporation, however you would still either need a new mortgage to get it out of your name and into teh corp. or have the existing mortgage holder be willing to transfer it out of your name into teh corporation. the corporation is going to have to show full books including income and liabilities. You will need to contact the current lender as well as some new mortgage companies.

good luck working things out

Donna, If your apartment is priced right, it will sell. There will be more inventory coming on in the Spring, so if time is a factor for you, it's best to put your apartment on the market now. They have been recent sales on Bronx River Rd. Please feel free to contact me on my cell phone (914-525-4533 if you would like to discuss further. Thank you. Patricia ... more

Hi Joe, This type of question can only by answered by seeing the property. As an agent not only do we take into consideration what other homes have sold for in your area, condition plays a big part. There is no way to guage exactly how long it will take to sell. I will tell you that if the home needs alot of updating or repairs the price should definitely reflect it. Due to current economic times buyters are already on the fence, when you put a home on the market you want to entice them to come off the fence. I have worked with hundreds of buyers in the past few years, my point is that I have a really good handle on what types of buyers are out there and what they look for. If you would like we could have a no strings attached conversation about strategies thta might work for you. If you would like to setup an in formal meeting at the home I can walk thru and give you my input and professional opinion.

Peter A Harris answered:
I am sorry to hear about your situation, I can understand how frustrating it must be. Realtors cannot give you legal advice, so there is not much I can help you with. However, based on the limited information you provided something is wrong. I suggest you have a very firm conversation with your attorney. He/she should have been more on the ball about making sure the buyer had the parking lot inspected in a timely fashion.

You may need to retain another attorney to help you if your attorney is unresponsive. Attorneys' are required to handle escrow funds pursuant to very detailed regulations, and unfortunately I have seen cases where this does not happen. An independent legal review may be necessary.

Best of luck!

Commission Rates are always negotiable. The best thing to do is to interview serveral Realtors and find out about their services and commission rate. The lowest rate is not always the best service.
Good luck to you.

2/1 Co-ops in this area generally range from $145,000 to $285,000 but to get a fair market price of your own co-op, you need to contact a real estate agent who will prepare a Comparative Market Analysis for your property.
