Because I am going to be friedo, Homeowner!
But not right away. This is a co-op purchase so there’s all sorts of bureaucratic shenanigans to sort out. But I wrote a check for my “contract deposit” of 10% of the offer price, which will be deducted from the much larger downpayment check that I get to write on the day of the closing. (That one actually has to be a certified check.)
Nonetheless, this means the process is officially in motion! I will be a rent-paying parasite oppressed by The Man no more!
Also I’m moving to Brooklyn. Know any good restaurants around Newkirk Ave or Prospect Park?
