ARe you certain the statement is "no guarantee that you will NOT be able to refinance..."
As we all know, two negatives equal a positive. Sounds like you may be able to refinance!

Most likely you have inserted one too many negtives, which would mean, as the 2008 crash demonstrated, the banks will promise and never deliver. DON"T PLAN ON REFINANCING AS A STRATEGY FOR THIS PURCHASE.

Good morning

Have several clients looking in Gramercy Park as we speak. This particular apartment is well priced for a large 850 Sq Ft 1BR Co-Op. At $763 Sq Ft, there is solid room for appreciation as many Co-Ops in the area are already priced at $800+ Sq Ft.

What's NOT to LOVE about Gramercy Park would be my first response! Fantastic dining, schools, shopping and retail. Easy access to the Lexington Avenue 6-Train and future corridor for the Second Avenue Subway line.

Always in high demand on the rental side as well. Gramercy Park is the "Park Slope of Manhattan". A young, established professional demographic dominates the area since it's quite a bit pricier than it's surrounding counterparts. Doesn't have the younger "Frat House" feel to it like the more affordable East Village and Murray Hill neighborhoods.

Walkable to both Flatiron - where a lot of New Yorkers work, and Union Square - where a lot of New Yorkers like to play!

Feel free to contact me if you're looking for a Buyer's Agent. I almost exclusively work with Buyer's for two reasons: I love taking care of people and New York is my City - and I love sharing it with everyone!

This is not a realistic budget - maybe you should consider being a roommate with someone or renting a room.

Requirements will depend on each individual landlord; generally proof of employment, credit report, security deposit, possibly reference letters, etc.

Hi John,

Not all banks will loan in HDFC coops. While I don't know all the local community credit unions that may finance in HDFC coops the only major banks that I know of that currently are financing coop loans in HDFC coops are citibank, Chase and Bank of America.

It is possible that an HDFC coop project will only be approved if approved at all by a certain lender. HDFC coops are specific to NYC since they are a NYC "affordable" housing program for "low" and "moderate" income households. Many lenders such as Wells Fargo will not loan in HDFC because of resale restrictions.

Normally, I would agree with the previous comment from the mortgage broker in Texas but as a broker who has listed HDFC coops and has represented both buyers and sellers of HDFC coops a pre-approval from a bank such as Wells Fargo that won't loan in HDFC coops is worthless.

A pre-approval will only show that you as the borrower are qualified to purchase but the building needs to qualify as well. if you decide to purchase an HDFC coop you wasted a lot of time with the wrong bank.

I would love to see the Bank of England finance coop loans in NYC. They obviously are not regulated by FHA and may not have all the rules and guidelines as the Fannie Mae banks but I highly doubt it.
