Co-Op Buildings


Co-op ownership implies owning shares in a company that owns the building, rather than owning the apartment outright. This form of ownership has both advantages and drawbacks (see notes below). Many older (prewar) Manhattan buildings fall into this category.

The following is the list of the co-op buildings we've surveyed.

Buying a co-op is different from buying a condo in several respects:

Renting in a co-op is also a possibility, but depending on how the building functions, you may have to be approved by the co-op board first, which may be quite a process. Again, it all depends on the board!

If all this sounds like too much trouble, your options are: buying/renting a condo or finding a good apartment in a rental building.
