You don't have to live here or be a citizen to own property here. Try that in other countries.

Most certainly. However, you did not mention an area or area's you are interested in. There are units available within your financial requirements. Please clarify the areas you are interested in. Do you wish to remain in the Elmhurst area? Please make this clear.

What is your attorney advising.....if the second floor is illegal, the seller is responsible for all necessary permits and c/o's. Keep in mind that if a mortgage is involved your lender may not lend without the c/o, also check with your homeowner's insurance company regarding insurability.... ... more

We don't predict the future, only God knows the answer to this question. What we can tell you is whether the area is generally stable as compared to other neighborhoods. The economic makeup of a community. The level of education, average incomes, family statistics etc. This is precisely why you should form a relationship with a respected realtor who is willing to invest the time and effort in providing you with the correct tools and information to assist you in becoming an informed buyer. People who do this really do better not only in their purchase choices, but in negotiating all the areas of pursuing the purchase of a property. This includes helping to pick the right lender, inspector, attorney etc. A trained monkey can point out a kitchen, living room, bathroom etc. But, proper guidance, and information to help you achieve your goals in invalueable, and requires a good deal of experience. An example I can give you, On a few occasions, couples came to me thinking that they wanted to purchase in certain areas of Queens. However, after listening to the lifestyle needs and wants they had, I showed and subsequently sold them homes in Long Island for the same amount monthly they would have spent in Queens with much larger properties in better condition then Queens and with community amenities (golf, swimming, parks and recreation, Libraries, etc.) they either couldn't find in the communities they were considering or would have had to pay a lot for inqueens.
