Downsizing to a COOP or CONDO? What you need to know.

Buying a Coop or Condo Advice

In this blog, you can read a recent Q & A with Joe Houlihan about moving from a home to a Condo or COOP and what differences you might want to know about before hand.

Q: What are the benefits of owning a condominium vs. a house? Drawbacks?
A: Probably the most popular benefit of owning a condominium is that you are typically not responsible for any outside maintenance. The condo association takes care of shoveling, snowplowing, landscaping, roofs, painting the exterior, paving, and more – all of those things that can drain your budget and your time when you own a house. Additionally, condos often come with a variety of amenities, like a clubhouse, pool, playground, basketball and tennis courts, and community center.

There are certain drawbacks to a condo, however. You lose a level of privacy, and have a lot of neighbors in very close proximity, which can be noisy. Parking can also be a challenge, depending on the development. Also, with a house, you have free reign to do what you like to the exterior and your yard. As an owner of a condo, you will belong to a homeowner’s association, and there are certain rules that must be followed, including items such as specified hours that workers can come to your home, exterior paint colors, and facade maintenance regulations regarding fences and plantings. Also, homeowner associations can raise fees if a huge maintenance issue comes up (e.g., windows need to be replaced).

Q: What is the difference between a condo and a co-op? What’s a better bargain in this market?
A: When you purchase a condo, you are purchasing actual real property. Co-ops are owned by a corporation, and when you purchase a co-op, you are buying shares of stock in that corporation, so you are more like an investor. Co-ops are run by boards, and have a monthly maintenance fee to cover building expenses and upkeep. Additionally, the approval process to purchase a co-op is much more onerous and time-consuming than with a condo. Finally, co-op boards often do not allow subletting at all and, if they do, the rules are very restrictive, as co-op boards want most of the building to be owner-occupied. It is much easier to purchase a condominium, and the rules are generally more relaxed. The problem buyers run into is that condos are hard to come by in certain marketplaces such as southern Westchester where Co-ops are most common.

Q: Are there any specific professions/people that seem to do better in condos?
A: People who like condos want to relieve themselves of the responsibilities of house maintenance, such as cleaning the gutters, mowing the lawn, and fixing the roof. Condos are especially suited to people who have second homes. That way they can go away for three days, or even three months, and not have to worry about such home maintenance issues as shoveling the walkway after a snowstorm.  Condos are also great for working couples, who are both so busy with their jobs that they don’t have time for maintenance issues, as well as seniors, who may not want to or physically be able to take care of their homes anymore.

Where To Go For Valentine’s Day Dinner In Bronxville

Bronxville

As COVID (including the Omicron variance) is drawing to a close (fingers crossed), people are starting to think more and more about getting out and enjoying life again. Physically going out, that is. While it was fun initially — staying in and cooking, learning new recipes, and mostly ordering in (thank goodness for the venders who worked through all of this), it’s time to come out of hibernation and enjoy getting back out there.  With that said, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.  What a great time to get out and celebrate with your loved one or your family.  So, with Valentine’s Day coming soon (Monday February 14th), here are our top five favorite restaurants:

-Rosie’s – https://www.rosiesbronxville.com/

-Underhills – Crossing; http://underhillscrossing.com/

-The Urban Hamle – https://theurbanhamlet.com/

-Park 143 – http://www.143parkbistro.com/

-Il Bacio Trattoria – https://www.ilbaciotrattoria.com/

A bit of history about Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine which is celebrated annually on February 14th. It originated as a Christian feast day honoring early Christian martyrs. The Feast of Saint Valentine was established by a Pope way back around A.D. 270 to be celebrated on February 14th in honor of Saint Valentine of Rome who died on that day. Fast forward to the 14th and 15th centuries, it became a more romantic day of love developed by the troubadours of Southern France and widely noted in European literature.  Then, by the 18th century in England, it grew into an occasion where couples expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, candies, and sending greeting cards known as Valentine’s Day messages. So, you see Valentine’s Day has become a substantial day of commercial celebration of romance and love throughout the world. What a lovely, romantic day!

This Valentine’s Day will be a great day to reflect about our family and loved ones whom everyone has missed seeing over the past couple of years. Send those cards and make those reservations. Enjoy!

Buying a Condominium, Pros & Cons – [Q & A WITH JOE HOULIHAN]

Buying a Coop or Condo Advice

Amout Villa Magazine recently conducted a Q&A with Joe Houlihan about buying a condo for a home, read what he had to say in this post.  And, remember to call Houlihan & O’Malley to speak with one of our expert agents about your real estate needs; buying, selling, renting, we’re here for you!

Q: What are the benefits of owning a condominium vs. a house? Drawbacks?
A: Probably the most popular benefit of owning a condominium is that you are not responsible for any outside maintenance. The condo association takes care of shoveling, snowplowing, landscaping, roofs, painting the exterior, paving, and more – all of those things that can drain your budget and your time when you own a house. Additionally, condos often come with a variety of amenities, like a clubhouse, pool, playground, basketball and tennis courts, and community center.

There are certain drawbacks to a condo, however. You lose a level of privacy, and have a lot of neighbors in very close proximity, which can be noisy. Parking can also be a challenge, depending on the development. Also, with a house, you have free reign to do what you like to the exterior and your yard. As an owner of a condo, you will belong to a homeowners association, and there are certain rules that must be followed, including items such as specified hours that workers can come to your home, exterior paint colors, and facade maintenance regulations regarding fences and plantings. Also, homeowner associations can raise fees if a huge maintenance issue comes up (e.g., windows need to be replaced).

Q: What is the difference between a condo and a co-op? What’s a better bargain in this market?
A: When you purchase a condo, you are purchasing actual real property. Co-ops are owned by a corporation, and when you purchase a co-op you are buying shares of that corporation, so you are more like an investor. Co-ops are run by boards, and have a monthly maintenance fee to cover building expenses and upkeep. Additionally, the approval process to purchase a co-op is much more onerous and time-consuming than with a condo. Finally, co-op boards often do not allow subletting at all and, if they do, the rules are very restrictive, as co-op boards want most of the building to be owner-occupied. It is much easier to purchase a condominium, and the rules are generally more relaxed. The problem buyers run into is that condos are hard to come by in certain marketplaces such as southern Westchester where Co-ops are most common.

Q: Are there any specific professions/people that seem to do better in condos?
A: People who like condos want to relieve themselves of the responsibilities of house maintenance, such as cleaning the gutters, mowing the lawn, and fixing the roof. Condos are especially suited to people who have second homes. That way they can go away for three days, or even three months, and not have to worry about such home maintenance issues as shoveling the walkway after a snowstorm.  Condos are also great for working couples, who are both so busy with their jobs that they don’t have time for maintenance issues, as well as seniors, who may not want to or physically be able to take care of their homes anymore.

2021-Westchester Real Estate-One for the Record Books

Buying a Coop or Condo Advice

Unprecedented Times – 2021

The global pandemic remains in full swing as we bring the year to a close. There have been ebbs and flows as we seem to conquer one variant and then succumb to another. The residential real estate market has had quite a ride this year as well. In the early part of the year, as vaccination rates increased, the market was ‘jubilant’ with buyers scrambling for almost every property that became available. Bidding wars dominated and first-time buyers were frustrated even if they had more than a 20% down payment.

As we got to the summer months, things got less hectic but contracts continued to get signed. In terms of the numbers — here they are hot off the press. This information is for the single-family home market in five (5) specific areas in lower Westchester.

Bronxville, Bronxville PO and Crestwood did not have a huge difference in sales volume, although the median price went up substantially. As you can see the larger impact was felt in Eastchester with a substantial increase in both volume & sales price. Tuckahoe showed a nice increase in the number of sales but the median price went down a bit.

Looking ahead-2022 should be another interesting year in real estate.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
