NYC. Hoping to get into contract on a co-op this week. Lawyer thinks we should put 60 days to close in contract. RE agent prefers 90 days bc board will take forever. Lawyer says that 60 days is better bc she wants to put pressure on seller to close & there will be no repercussions to us as buyers if board takes longer. Rate is only locked for 90 days & she thinks we can get a commitment quickly.
