When you were ready to move out to your first rental, our sister site MyFirstApartment.com helped to make it happen. We were there for you when you dealt with bad landlords and deadbeat roommates. We showed you how to furnish your new place on a shoestring, and helped you manage your budget so that the rent got paid. Now that you are an old pro in the rental game, we’ll have your back again as you start your next real estate adventure, buying your first condo or co-op.

Our Senior Blogger, Alex Starace, is a proud owner of a condo in Chicago. He is also the president of his condo association (don’t worry, we’ll explain what that means!). Our General Manager, Seija Goldstein, has lived for many years in a large co-op building in New York City. Our Advisory Board of legal and real estate professionals will add their expertise when needed.

Our team of bloggers will offer you common sense explanations and advice about the process of buying a condo or co-op and making the transition from a renter to an owner. They will share their own experiences and lessons they have learned. Some will even take us along as they work through their own condo buying process.
