Before considering the idea, it's really in your best interest to consult with an attorney who specializes in real estate regarding all the legal hurdles, then go from there.

Consider inviting a few local agents from different realty companies and ask for a cma, comparative market analysis; review the data, ask opinions, and determine current worth, then go from there.... ... more

Dear Myabby218:

You should have a real estate agent help you. You will have to pay the agent's fee which usually is one months rent and you also have to give the landlord the first months rent and one months security. Hence if you rent for $1200 per month you would need $3600 to get started. In most cases they will want to review your credit report and income. Good luck!

Ken Dixon answered:
Good question. I'm assuming the square footage source is coming from the builder in this scenario. Have the builder show you the plans. The building and planning department for the city in which the home resides will also have a copy of the plans. It wouldn't make sense for a builder to exaggerate square footage to you as an appraiser will have to come out and measure the home (assuming your securing financing to purchase the home.) If there is a discrepancy between what the builder is stating and what the appraiser determines then you may have leverage to reduce your asking price based on the new information. ... more

Dear Lena_berg:

I checked on public records and the owner of this property appears to be Paulien Lethen. I also looked it up on Google. It looks like a great property! If you want to contract this person I would suggest you either go to the property and ring their door bell (just try not to scare them) or you can mail them a letter! Good luck!

You really dont,I think if you are willing to put some effort out. In NY, unlike other states where I have lived, the agents dont wrie the contract of sale, dont schedule inspections etc. Some dont even have access to the multiple list system. so it is baffling that they charge 6% for what again?????????? ... more

Unfortunately, none of us knows with certainty what tomorrow will bring and any answer would only be speculation--however, what we do know today, is that interest rates are good and prices have declined, therefore, if you're looking to buy and have found a "must have" go for it.

Why haven't you visited with a qualified loan officer(s) yet is my question--he/she can tell you what your budget can handle and check that credit score--If you haven't done so yet, visit a loan officer(s) first-don't forget to ask for a mortgage pre-qualification/approval letter. After, you know your financial affordability, take it from there. Also--do you have a Realtor--and have you looked at recently sold similar properties in the immediate area--if not you should.

HiNJgirl,
I do not know the highrise or the town, but feel I like to mention something, which has little to do with the location and building itself, for that a local Real Estate Agent, may have some more specific and detailed answers for you.

But just generally speaking, when opening a store (And I have done that myself in my area at one point in my life, so I know a little about it!) there are several items that are very important....

Traffic, i.e. how many people pass by the store (high rise you may think plenty, as they are living right there and in that respect you may be right)

What are you selling? Explore the neighborhood, look if there is competition in what you are offering as
product!

Can you be competitive? In other words look at the rent, insurance etc. that this particular location requires, and then look how you have to price your product or services in order to come out with a profit at the end, and once you have determined that test your pricing with surrounding similar stores' pricings, in other words will you be able to be competitive....

I know this is just general information, and hopefully some one from your town who knows not only the building but also the area will be of help with further input!

Good Luck to you! Hooray for entrepreneurs and the courage to start something new!

Jordan Pryce Levitt answered:
This depends on whether the building is new construction and a sponsor sale, or a resale in an existing building. In a new building the broker will likely registered you as their customer and can claim a commission upon a sale, but in either case you can fire your agent and be free to work with whomever you choose. The only issue is that if another broker can claim the commission, your new broker will not be able to claim a commission and you may be obligated to pay them.

If anyone ever has questions of this type, please feel free to phone or email me for specific advice.

2 words: Denial & Delusional.
Every condo buildings that don't adapt to demand and offer a huge price cut will follow the same path a the "Magic" Viridian:
http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article/20090218/FREE/902189969
Anyway, i asked the same question about RE prices in NY and realize after spending a few days on this forum that it's the wrong place to get unbiased answers about the current market.
Most answers you get from RE brokers hanging here are " Buy now or be priced out forever", " Now is the time to buy", "We're hitting the bottom"...
If you're a New Yorker and are a potential buyer, you may have realized that NY real estate prices are mostly driven by Wall street people & their bonuses. If you read the Talk section from http://www.streeteasy.com you'll get confirmation of what i'm saying. These same investors that have driven the prices up are now realizing that prices are coming down so fast that it may be time to unload to limit the damages. Not many of these people are gonna buy real estate this year, i tell you that.
Any broker telling you that the RE prices reached bottom is lying to you. For 2 properties selling they are 4 new coming on the market. Inventory is growing everyday and it's not being a genius guessing that prices still have a long way to drop until the market starts to become healthy again.
Personally, i'm on the side line and wait until i feel like seller give up resistance and accept my offer at 45% below peak price. You just have to be patient but this time will come.
