New development struggles in changing West Chelsea market

A new development in West Chelsea may be of interest to you if you love swimming. This 31-unit mid-rise is meant to have 4-foot-deep pools in over half its apartments. The pools will be indoor-outdoor units, giving people the option to swim in any weather conditions. They are heated as well, making them ideal for the winter months.

You can take a stand if a tree or structure blocks your view

Imagine purchasing the perfect property in New York City. You have beautiful views, overlook the parks and enjoy seeing sunrises and sunsets from your living room. Then, one day, you wake up with a blocked view. In the once grassy lot next to you, someone planted large trees that are impeding the view from your living room windows.

Here's what you can do if your neighbor trespasses

You love spending time in your yard, but lately you've noticed that your neighbor is putting a lot of his trash on your property. At first, you thought it was just a mistake and that he wasn't aware of the property line, so you talked to him and he said he'd correct the problem.

You should ask questions before hiring an attorney or realtor

Any time you decide you want to sell a home, it's important that you work with someone who has the skills and experience to assist you. Before you decide who you want to work with, you need to ask a few questions.

Environmental issues can ruin a home purchase

Environmental issues can make a real estate transaction go south faster than almost anything else. Imagine wanting to purchase a property and getting halfway through the transaction before you find out that the land had been contaminated or that the home is essentially lined with mold. It could be devastating and ruin your prospects for purchasing a home.

Understand what a condominium is before a purchase

Condominiums, which are usually referred to as condos, are homes similar to many others on the market. They offer you a place to live and provide you with many of the rights that you'd gain as a traditional homeowner. The difference is that the development of condominiums is managed by an association, and that association makes rules for the community. The individual owners of the condominiums share ownership of common areas while the association maintains the common areas and sometimes outside areas of the homes.
