You should find out why the bank denied the loan, and try to correct the issue. There is no set time limit to start another process.

Well...
They say Brooklyn is "The New Manhattan" and is more culurally diverse than any place I know. We even have a Botanical Garden! It is alot safer than evcer before, some of the best schools in NYC area here and you can even take the kids to Coney Island in the summer!

I think it more family friendly than the high volume of people and traffic of Manhattan.

Have any questions? Feel free to call me. Not only am I a native...

Financially, it's very helpful to have equity. You can borrow against it or use it to buy a larger or better home.

There are not particular dis-advantages, however if you own something then you will derive tax benefits of home ownership which can reduce the actual taxes that you do pay.

Rent prices can fall when either demand declines (as in an economic recession or loss of local jobs) or supply increases (as in when more investors put rentals on the market).

Alison Hillman answered:
You should really ask a local attorney/RE agent, but generally HOA and RE taxes are attached to the property. If the trustee sale is by the mortgage bank, then it is likely that at closing they will require you to pay the prorated portion of the HOA fees and the taxes.

I bought a foreclosed home once directly from a bank, not through a trustee auction sale, and all the taxes and HOA dues were prorated at closing, they're not part of the bid.

Well, I'll answer your question in a Brooklyn-centric manner, since it appears that's where you're from. While condo home owners' associations are the norm in places like Florida, in NY there is the condo board and the offering plan, which lays down the rules and functioning of the building for the most part. New ideas or rules are voted on. So don't worry, you'll be fine in NYC with no home owners association-- there's a condo board and if you want, you can usually find a place on it.

Want an agent who rebates you 10% of the commission at closing? That's me. For example, on a $500,000 property with 2.5% to my co., that's a $1,250 rebate.

Thanks!

Rhayward,

The purpose of a walk-through is to make sure no damage was incurred from the move out and/or expose something that might have been hidden behind furniture...or anything major that may have occurred since you did your home inspection.

It is NOT another home inspection.

Good luck in your new home.

Hi Atan - remember the coop attorney is looking out for the coop..I would suggest that if you
both agree that you at least get one attorney for the two of you. at least it appears that somebody
is looking out for you. Remember penny-wise-pound foolish. Any attorney usually only charges
$1200.00. Better safe than sorry. Good Luck
