SELLING GUIDE:– When selling a home, please bear in mind the following:

Best Practices for Selling

  • If selling a co-op or condominium, obtain rules and regulations from the managing agent.
  • Obtain documents (prospectus/offering plan, three years’ financials, co-op/condo guidelines, etc.) from the managing agent and have them on hand before going to market.
  • Find out if your building has a “flip tax” or working capital deposit and whether the buyer or seller is responsible for paying it.
  • Before coming on the market, you will need to select an experienced real estate attorney to represent your interests.
  • Make sure your home is clean and in top condition. You may want to consider using a professional stager.
  • Allow your agent to schedule showings at the time of day when your property looks best.
  • Display fresh flowers to add warmth to the environment. Remove any jittery pets and arrange to be elsewhere when your home is being shown.

Bidding and Negotiating

This is how the bidding process typically works:

  • The bid or offer from a buyer is made orally or in writing through your real estate agent or co-broker, along with a presentation of the buyer’s qualifications.
  • You may accept or counter the offer as part of price negotiation.
  • In the case of multiple bids, you and your agent will execute a strategy to obtain the best price and terms from the most qualified buyer. Frequently, the strategy will involve sealed bids or a deadline for the highest and best offers from various bidders.
  • You will work closely with your agent to identify the offer that best satisfies your needs.
  • The conclusion of the process will result in agreement upon the price, terms and closing date.
  • Your attorney will prepare a contract of sale and submit it to the buyer’s attorney for review.

Going to Contract

Once you have accepted an offer, you will enter the contract stage.

  • While your attorney prepares the contract of sale, the buyer’s attorney will exercise due diligence by asking for certain key papers from you or your managing agent. These typically include:
  • Statement of the building’s financial condition
  • The building’s by-laws
  • Proprietary lease or offering plan and amendments
  • With the approval and agreement of the buyer’s attorney, the contract of sale is signed by the buyer. At the signing, the buyer typically presents a deposit of 10% of the sale price.
  • The contract and deposit are forwarded to your attorney, who will obtain your signature.
  • The buyer’s deposit is usually held in your attorney’s escrow account until the closing date. Normally, any interest earned follows the principal.

Board Approval

Your real estate agent presents the buyer with the building’s board requirements and application forms, which may include:

  • Application
  • Signed financial statements
  • Tax returns
  • Bank statements
  • Brokerage statements
  • Personal and financial letters of reference
  • Professional reference letters
  • Contract of sale
  • Bank financing documents (if financing)

The buyer’s agent compiles the board package and then sends it to your agent. They will review it prior to submission to the building’s managing agent, who will present it to the building’s board of directors.

Upon review, the board may or may not ask for additional information. A co-op may turn down a buyer. If not, the board will arrange to interview the buyer. Participants should be forewarned that the time lapse between submission of the board package and schedule of the interview varies greatly from building to building, and from season to season. Generally, condominium buyers are not interviewed.

Closing

With the board’s approval, the final step is the closing. This usually occurs in the office of your building’s managing agent. The exact date should be flexible to accommodate everyone (you, your buyer, the attorneys, the banks, and the managing agent). It is best to allow for a potential delay of up to 30 days from the closing date specified in the contract. On the day of the closing, you will be expected to provide a photo ID and evidence of ownership: proprietary lease/stock certificate (cooperative) or deed (townhouse or condominium).

Buying Guide

When you have identified a property of interest, you will want to make an offer to purchase that property. Bidding and Negotiating
This is how the bidding process typically works:

  • Your agent will submit an offer on your behalf to the seller’s real estate agent, along with the presentation of your qualifications. This may be done orally or in writing.
  • Remember to inquire about the flip tax, as this is sometimes a negotiating point.
  • The seller may accept or counter your offer as part of price negotiation.
  • In the case of multiple bids, your agent will work with you to submit the highest and best offer that you are comfortable with.
  • The conclusion of the process will result in agreement upon the price, terms & closing date.
  • You and the seller will need to identify and engage capably and experienced New York City-based real estate attorneys early in the process to prepare and review a contract of sale.

Going to Contract

If your bid is accepted, you enter the closing and contract stage:

Your attorney will exercise due diligence by asking for certain key documents from the seller or their managing agent. These typically include:

  • Proprietary lease or offering plan
  • The building’s by-laws
