Typical NYC Coop Board Interview

Real Estate Agent with Compass


Co-op ownership differs from that of Condominiums in that you own shares in a Corporation instead of holding Title to a piece of property.  The Corporation is governed by a Board of Directors.  It is this Board that establishes what the requirements are in order to purchase an apartment in their building. After board application package is submitted and reviewed, the board will request an interview.

Very funny.  We only have a couple of coops on the Westside here, so fortunately, I have not had to deal with them and try and shy away. The two I am familiar with are almost impossible to get a loan on, and I cannot imagine having to go through all the hoops to live in a home you don't own. I wonder why it took off so much on the East Coast and not the West.

I think many of this Coop Board's directors own some condos down here in Florida!

Jane, Cooperative living got its start in the 1880's, inspired by Charles Fourier, a French socialist who argued that cooperation bred efficiency. A French immigrant to New York named Philip Hubert picked up on the idea and built the first co-op, the Hubert Home Club, near the current site of Carnegie Hall.

According to the New York Times, despite their utopian origins, co-ops quickly turned into a celebration of capitalism and exclusivity.

Today, co-ops-which sell shares in a corporation that owns the building, rather than individual apartments-- make up the bulk of our housing. As always, the boards have the right to reject any buyer who doesn't quite fit, however they define "fit”.  

Socialism turned into New York style elitism.

Gabe, LOL!
