Buying A Coop In New York
With up to eighty percent of the apartment for sale in New York being in coop buildings, there are more to choose from than when purchasing a condo. Many coop buildings are older, with fewer features than what are found in condo complexes, but they are considered a better value for the money for those reasons.Important considerations when considering a coop mortgage may include the fact that for many the loan amount can be as little as fifty percent of the price. For these mortgages it would be best to consult with our loan professionals at Centex Capital Corp. to ensure you will be getting the best deal possible.
There are also tax advantages to a coop purchase as opposed to condos, including the ability to write off the monthly maintenance, taxes and other parts of the payment that is involved. Buying a coop apartment technically makes you a shareholder in the building itself, with some responsibilities for the costs of services and taxes on the property.
