    What’s the Difference Between Condos & Co-Ops?

    While co-ops tend to attract higher monthly fees than condos, they usually sell for lower prices.

    Condos

    With a condo, you own a single unit, and you also have use of common areas such as parking lots, hallways, walkways, swimming pools, and gyms. In addition to the mortgage and taxes, monthly home ownership fees are also part of the parcel which account for costs toward maintenance and upkeep of the property.

    co-ops

    When you purchase a co-op, you purchase stock in the corporation and become a shareholder. This allows you to lease a unit on the said premises. Since a corporation owns the real estate, monthly fees come in the form of the entire property’s mortgage, taxes, and any other applicable charges. The number of shares you own has a bearing on the fees you pay.

    What Loan Alternatives Do You Have?

    We offer loan programs for condos and co-ops even if you are a first-time home buyer. Depending on what you’re after, you may choose from fixed rate and adjustable rate mortgages. You may qualify for a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loan, although they are made available only for condo projects and not for co-ops. In addition, the condo project you are looking at needs to be FHA approved.

    Condos and co-ops come with a fair share of differences, especially when it comes to buying and owing a home, which is why you should start by determining which one works better for you. Let one of our mortgage loan originators look into your circumstances and then guide you in the right direction.
