Ask Curbed: What's The Upside/Downside Of A Co-op?

New, 10 comments

A reader needs some basic real estate 101 help. We all might know the difference, but let's comfort this confused soul, shall we?

"I've been house hunting recently and looked at a place I really liked but it turns out, the place is a co-op. What's the deal with co-ops? After researching it a little, they seem like a risky pain in the ass. Do you know what the pros and cons are for a co-op vs. a condo? Thanks."
