When I purchase this home do I inherit the debt or is the debt incurred with the previous owners? How is it even possible that the building as a whole is delinquent on tax payments (if all owners are paying taxes individually)? Is this something to be negotiated in the contract i.e. "the buyer will not inherit any existing debt from the building"? Any thoughts would be super appreciated.<br \><br \>3 replies Fri, 09 May 2014 02:39:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Buying-a-condo-with-a-tax-lien-on-the-building/539977/ 2014-05-09T02:39:00Z 347 SPRAIN RD YONKERS NY Is the $3100 asking price for this property for real? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/347-SPRAIN-RD-YONKERS-NY-Is-the-3100-asking-price-for-this-property-for-real/509497/ 4 replies Sun, 01 Sep 2013 01:37:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/347-SPRAIN-RD-YONKERS-NY-Is-the-3100-asking-price-for-this-property-for-real/509497/ 2013-09-01T01:37:00Z Any townhouses in Yonkers, NY? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Any-townhouses-in-Yonkers-NY/506259/ 1 reply Sun, 11 Aug 2013 03:47:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Any-townhouses-in-Yonkers-NY/506259/ 2013-08-11T03:47:00Z Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) credit available to first time home buyers in Yonkers? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Mortgage-Credit-Certificate-MCC-credit-available-to-first-time-home-buyers-in-Yonkers/501517/ <div class="comment-body rich-content "><br/>If yes, where can I find information about it?

At this point I can afford a co-op with 20% down and will save a bit more before I commit. I just had a couple of questions I wanted to get a consensus on.<br/><br/>1) I live at home and pay no real rent, I contribute but nothing significant to speak of.<br/>2) I went to a conference hosted by Schiller (as in the guy they named the pricing index after) in July/August, and by his estimations, housing prices had another 20% to fall at least. This was before the credit markets froze etc.<br/>3) I lean towards the "timing" side. I am not trying to time the market, but i like a classic analogy: If you are on the train tracks and see the train coming, you're not going to stand there and get hit head on.<br/><br/>I understand that <a href="http://www.zillow.com">real estate</a> is local, however the economy is also local, and i am looking to buy a residence in south east yonkers. With everyone losing their jobs, I'd imagine i have some leeway with the price. I looked at the average prices for a co-op and they were ballpark 130k for a 1 bedroom. I estimate that from last quarter they fell about 5% or so leaving at least another 15% to go, I'd like to make an offer of about 115k (I think this is reasonable considering the factors, though i'm sure several people will disagree).<br/><br/>I eventually want to have kids in a couple of years and my fear is this:<br/>1) do i buy a 1 bedroom in the next couple of months<br/>2) With all the debt we financed, rates are going to go through the roof. If history is any indication, we'll easily hit double digits. If this happens in the next couple of years, I'm going to be SOL trying to buy a bigger residence.<br/><br/>Thoughts?<br/><br \><br \>14 replies Tue, 17 Feb 2009 14:48:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Buying-a-residence-now/200263/ 2009-02-17T14:48:00Z Where can I get a free list of forclosed homes in New York or New Jersey? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Where-can-I-get-a-free-list-of-forclosed-homes-in-New-York-or-New-Jersey/186493/ I want a pre-forclosed, forclosed, bank owned or sale by owner home, everytime I look online I am told the list are free but the sites want my credit card info.
