Dear Genierie:

The maintenance for the $79,900 unit is $948.00 per month which includes gas, heat, electric, water and real estate taxes. This particular building also has an in-ground outdoor heated pool for warm weather use. They do not allow pets as per their co-op policy as of this moment. The co-op has an indoor parking garage where you can rent a space for I think about $100.00 per month, but there is a waiting list for those spaces as well. You do need board approval and there is a minimum down payment requirement of 20%.

If you want to view this apartment or other in and around this building/neighborhood, please contact me, I have many listed that I can tell you about. Either way, good luck!

Sincerely,

What property are you referring to? No one can answer your question without knowing the property you would like to see.

Dear Bella:

Either buy it all cash if you can or just look for a different co-op to purchase. You can also try going to a different bank. Some banks are stricter when it comes to co-ops than others.

If you want contact me, I know several mortgage bankers who may be able to help you. Good luck!

Dear Annekay:

The lowest priced co-op in Midwood that is currently and actively listed for sale in Midwood right now is asking $59,900.00. It is an "L" shaped studio in the Sutton House building. If you want to take a look at it give me a call.

Dear Home buyer,

Good for you in checking this important detail. Different scenerious to look into. First I would pull tax records and see what the tax accessors office says. Even though you can not rely on this 100% but you can see what they have. I would also see what the listing is stating and ask the listing agent where did they get that square footage. Or ask the seller how they came up with the total square footage because most of the time they provide the total sq.ft. under roof and that includes everything including areas that are not heated and cooled. Or sq.ft. has been added and that dear buyer get straight before you buy. You can place a contingency for appraisel. Just remember you want to get what you pay for.


Note: if you have a discrepency after taking all precautions and you still have the 1335sq.ft then divide the price by the sq.ft and that is exactly what you are paying for sq.ft. I hope this helps. Best of Luck.

I tried helping a buyer find a co-op in Kensington and found that many of the local smaller brokerages refused to co-broke or showed open listings. I also found a couple of great local agents that sincerely did a great job.

I would still suggest that you get a buyer's broker to represent you. You'll need help getting the market/sale history of a building, the unit, the average sales prices in the neighborhood, someone guiding you through the application process, etc...

If you need a referral or any other advice, feel free to contact me.

The best answer is to make the offer based on the last closed sales and go from there. The seller can either counter or reject you`re offer.
The land should have an assesment on the tax roll have you checked there? ... more

Hey there! Taxes in Brooklyn are notoriously low for what you are buying. Since Brooklyn is still part of NYC you do not find the high taxes of similar areas in Long Island (Nassau/Suffolk). There is no way for me to pull up your property taxes without an address, or at least a block. However, if YOU know the address you can always check out propertyshark.com they have tax information for almost every property in NYC, it is usually right on.

I live near Midwood in a large 2 Family home over 3K of living space, and my taxes are around 3K a year.

Taxes can vary also depending on when the last time the home as was assessed. When I first bought it my taxes were around 1,300/year.
