Default average cost to purchase a 2/3 bedrooms apartment in Elmhurst or Astoria? And other advices

I have found a future school mate who is toying the idea of purchasing a 2 or 3 bedroom Elmhurst or Astoria close to the subway line.

We are just students so we are not looking for a fancy place. My parents are willing to pay if the price is reasonable.

Will the price for apartments in Elmhurst or Astoria appreciate in the next four years? We plan to sell the house after we are done school.

What would be the average cost for a 2/3 bedrooms apartment in Elmhurst or Astoria close to the subway line?

Thank you for much for your help.

There is no way you're going to purchase a 2/3 BR in Astoria for $260k. I do see 1BR co-ops for around that price Here is a listing of places for sale on Craigslist

new york craigslist > queens > real estate for sale: search for "astoria" (broken link)

Last year, I put a bid on a 1 bedroom co-op for $270 in Astoria. I saw some small 2 bedrooms apts for low $300's off Ditmars but I heard the co-op didn't keep up with the maintenance of the building.

I hear there are condo's/co-ops near Flushing & Jackson Heights if you like those area's.

The Acropolis is the only major co-op in Astoria I know of. It's in a pretty good location, between 21st Ave. and Ditmars and between 33rd and 35th Sts. (or something like that). Opinions of the place are very mixed -- personally, I don't like it, and have heard some not-so-hot things about it. Then again, my girlfriend has friends living there and they think it's OK. There have been some threads on the Astorians forum if you search for it.
