Whether buying a newly constructed condominium or an older home, insurance will cover you in a variety of ways.

“In Astoria, where the walk-ups are older, sometimes the owner is less focused on insurance,” said a rep from Gotham Brokerage. “But these older buildings have stairwells, and you have people who can have accidents on the stairwells, so you need the coverage as much there as in the newer buildings.”
