Anyone know neighborhoods in NYC where I'm likelier to find condos for sale rather than co-ops or "condos"? I'm eager to buy a place but I don't want to be in a co-op and deal with their rules, tbh, but NYC seems to be co-op heavy, condo light. Enough so that I'd consider Jersey at this point.

Depends on the co-op, if you are not scared of a project look for “sponsor units”. They require no board approval or rules to get in only to get out. I bought a sponsor unit in 2016 in a co-op with low maintenance on the UES. Bought it for $1.2M - 1400sqft 2bd, 2bth. I put $220k into a gut renovation and sold it in 2019 for $1.75M right before 2020 - thank god!!

Sure, no problem. Key thing is to hire your contractor OUTSIDE of the city, buy materials OUTSIDE of the city. Ask your building if they want you to use a building engineer. Typically it will cost you more but it will get you through the approval process faster since the building engineer will know what would get through the board. On the architect - make sure they can expedite or you are going to already be behind schedule. Check to make sure you can trench walls and floors if you are looking to do a real modern reno

You likely know this but co-ops have generally lower closing costs and potentially lower all around maintenance. But may have a better ROI.

Brooklyn, most of the recent and new development is all condos. If you’re near Barclays your commute will be the same if not shorter than most places in Manhattan depending on where your office is at

I’m in Jackson Heights in a co-op I love! Don’t rule them out! JH also has lots of condos, it’s a great area. I moved here from Hell’s Kitchen and commute increased by 10 min (I work near grand central) but costs have halved. I actually bought neighbors apartment and combined the units and now all-in pay the same for my 3b2bath that I was paying for rent for my 1b1b fancy Hell’s Kitchen place. No brainer

Lots of Co-ops in my hood, they are pro pet. Come to WaHi

Murray hill and Sutton place

Most newer buildings are condos, so you can search by build year btw
