  1. The mansion tax does not have to be paid by the buyer, as the tax may be apportioned between buyer and seller.

  2. Anything can be negotiated in a real estate transaction. However, the mansion tax is a tax burden the buyer is responsible for. Transfer taxes are taxes the seller is responsible for.

  3. Buying a condo unit will inevitably lead to questions of home improvement. Why? Overtime, changes in lifestyle and growing family needs to make repairs or home improvement needs, but the limitations of participation by Condo leads to solutions for minimum waste must still alone.

  4. so, looking at a coop for 659,000. How much can I expect to pay each month, including maintenance?
    Thank you.

  5. Maintenance varies building to building. Your monthly mortgage payments can vary depending on how much you put down and the interest rate. While I'm not a banker or a mortgage broker if you put down the typical 20% at 4.5% interest your mortgage payment would be around $2670. Maintenance on a $659,000 coop can range anywhere from $700 to $1500/month. You should talk to a lender. Here is a link on my site to some good lenders. It also has a mortgage calculator. Good Luck.

  6. Are there any additional taxes owed to NY State or NY City other than transfer taxes on the sale of a NY coop unit? I ask specifically as a single non-resident, who has lived primarily in the unit for more than 2 of the 5 years prior to selling and whose gain is less than $250,000. Is there a sales tax, income tax, capital gains tax??? All very confusing.
