Why New York Condominiums Can Be A Wise Investment
If you live in New York City, you have roughly three choices when you’re ready to buy a home. First, you can spend double-digit millions on a townhouse. The cost is prohibitive, and you end up being the superintendent of your own home.
Next, you can buy a cooperative apartment (a ‘co-op’). You’ll have to disclose your personal finances and life’s history to a group of total strangers, and live according to a set of buidling rules that, for many, seem onerous and downright unneighborly.
That’s why a condo can be a smart purchase and terrific investment. In most cases, the only thing that matters is whether you can get a mortgage buy the apartment. No onerous co-op board package to fill out; no having tell a set of complete strangers how much money you have, where it all comes from, what you think about fur coats, and other politically charged questions. Condos give you more privacy.
