Buying A Condo 101

Purchasing a condo is not the same as buying a home for a single family. Considering most instances, condominiums offer a wide range of services such as fitness centers, tennis courts, and pools. People are typically drawn to condos due to its low maintenance costs as well as the lifestyle of living in a condominium community. The following points should be considered before you start your condo search:

  • Determine Whether a Condo is the “Right Fit”
  • Ask yourself this question: “should I buy a condo?” That is, evaluating the pro’s and cons is a necessity because there are some pretty big differences between condos and single family homes.
  • Hire a Real Estate Agent Who Has Experience
  • Unlike buying a single family, multi-family, or vacant land, buying a condo is a very different process. So make sure you are working with a real estate agent who understands what needs to get done to avoid any mishaps.
  • Obtain Financing

  • Examine the Association Rules
