Buying & Selling a Senior Co-op
Reselling a Home
A Simple Process
Should you decide to sell your co-op home in the future, the process is quite simple and usually does not require the help or fees of a real estate agent. The first step is to inform the Property Manager by submitting an “Intent to Withdraw” form. The manager then offers the home to other members in the cooperative before turning to prospects on the community’s wait list. The price of your home includes your original share price, plus an appreciation, compounded annually, of the total value (Initial Dwelling Unit Value) of your home. Approved upgrades are also included in the sale price of your home.
Frequently Asked Questions
For existing cooperatives, contact the Property Manager at the location you’re interested in and fill out a reservation agreement to get on the waitlist. You will be contacted when a home is available for purchase. Also, you can check our website for homes available right now.
Approved upgrades are design upgrades such as granite countertops and hardwood floors made at an additional cost before construction is completed. The cost of upgrades (excluding carpet) are added to your resale value.
Additional costs typically include a transfer fee and fees for any necessary refurbishment. However, there are no closing costs, if you resell your home through your property manager or choose to sell it on your own.
