You should start looking immediately.

Although if you find a house in March or April you will have plenty of time to close before the deadline (you have to be under contract by April 30 and you have to close by June 30) there is no reason to delay.

If you start your search now you will have plenty of time to make calculated decisions and will have time to look at quite a few coops. Hopefully you will find something you like for a decent price.

If you wait until closer to the deadline, you might get pressed for time and have less options to choose from.
You might settle for a lesser coop than you might have gotten if you had the time to look around and you might be pressured to pay a little more.

It is never a good idea to rush into buying a home. It is a serious, long-term and sometimes nerve wracking transaction. Starting now will give you a major edge.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.

What is your Realtor advising you to do? 10% is for the most part required upon signing the contract, most sellers will not be comfortable with anything less.

Hi Maxine
The best place to look is in the Property Appraiser's website of the state the property is located, Just look under Real Estate and type in the address. If the home is abandoned it may be going into foreclosure, Go to the local court records website and you will be able to see if the home has any liens on it and if the bank is foreclosing, Hope this was helpful to you.

In general doing real estate in NY is different than most states. If the pre-forclosure is is transacted like any other property.

Is it a short sale? is it a bank sale? Is there something that makes it different from all properties that are for sale? ... more

You can absolutely sell your home in today's market. What you need to do is price it competitively, market it as widely as possible, make sure it shows well inside and out, and hire an excellent Realtor who can guide you throughout the process.

This Realtor can conduct a comparative market analysis (CMA) to give you guidance on pricing your home competitively and inform you of the status of your local real estate market, provide you referrals for any contractors and stagers you may need to prepare your house for the sale, and they'll help you negotiate the sale when buyers make an offer.

Hope this helps.
