New York City's Steinway Hall sold to development group

When you hear about a major real estate transaction, you probably don't put much thought into what went on behind the scenes to make the deal happen -- and that's okay, because the details of such a real estate purchase are not exactly interesting. But they are important for those looking to sell or purchase real estate, even if they lack excitement.

Debate over 'roommate law' a reminder of zoning and housing laws

Far to the north of New York City lies Watertown, a quaint city near the Canadian border. As you can imagine, Watertown's real estate situation is predominantly residential.

Subletting rules at co-ops vary depending on tenant

As we mentioned in our last post, the major difference between a co-op and a condominium is the lack of property ownership for the buyer. With a co-op, the buyer gets stock in the company that owns the co-op, while also being allowed to lease housing there; meanwhile, someone who purchases a condo actually owns that particular piece of property. This gives the condo owner some freedom if they wanted to lease out their space to someone else.
