First Time NYC Homebuyer Guide

Being a homebuyer in NYC is unlike being a homebuyer anywhere else. It’s much more complicated (unless you’re buying a house) because of the co-op and condo board process and requirements. We’ve put together this guide to help walk you through the steps of buying a home in New York City from start to finish. Our homebuyer guide starts with what you’ll need to do to prepare for your home search and ends with you sitting at the closing table.


Please click on the above link for more details. We share this guide when we speak on first time homebuyer panels, for buyers to use as a reference when undertaking their New York City home search.

Also included in the homebuyer guide are typical closing costs for buyers of co-ops (including sponsor sales), condosĀ  (including new development) and houses. It’s very important you understand the transaction costs of buying and selling a home in NYC, especially if you intend on buying an investment property.
