Challenges and issues that condos face

Did you wake up this morning with condominiums on your mind? Probably not, but I wanted to highlight a crash course video on some of the nuts and bolts of condo real estate transactions. This is really good stuff and I hope you find it helpful.

Bruce SlatonThe video below highlights Realtor Bruce Slaton and it deals with some of the most common financing challenges and HOA issues that condominiums tend to face. It’s really an excellent quick intro to condominiums. The presentation was geared toward Realtors at the Sacramento Association of Realtors, but the information is still solid and relevant for others too. Bruce shares some interesting condo nuggets too that many may not be aware of. His presentation is about twenty minutes and begins at 5:07 and ends at 26:18. If you are pressed for time, just listen to the video in the background while you work. Watch below or here (video starts right at 5:07).

For more information you may wish to check out two previous articles I wrote entitled “5 Potential Deal Killers for Condo Loans” and “What’s the difference between a condominium and townhome” (there is so much confusion about this).

What do you think of the video? Anything stand out to you?

    After having been President of a Homeowner’s Association, I can confirm Bruce was right on…it is common practice in my real estate business when a buyer is considering buying a condo that I bring out the good and the bad so they can make an informed decision.

      I didn’t know you were a president, Gena. That’s great. Good for you to help your buyers understand the good and the bad.
