According to the latest CityRealty listings, the median price of a two-bedroom condo is $2.495 million, and the median price of a two-bedroom co-op is $1.525 million. Co-ops notoriously have several obstacles that condos do not and going before a board is certainly one of them. New York is full of horror stories about draconian application processes and onerous policies, and buyers are keen to avoid that if possible.

As understandable as these fears may be, buyers who shun all co-ops run the risk of shutting themselves off to a host of beautiful homes at reasonable prices. Board approval is not required to get into the following two-bedroom apartments, all of which are in desirable neighborhoods and below the median price.
