For many young adults, buying a condominium is the first step to home ownership. Choosing the right condominium is important for protecting your investment while building equity for the future. For seniors, it's the freedom of just closing the door when travel beckons and is a viable answer to downsizing. If an easy lifestyle, without the hassles of home maintenance are what you’re looking for, invest in a condominium, or rent out Pine Ridge condominiums but make it the right one.
Make a list of things to suit you: - Make a list of neighborhoods that are appealing, asking yourself if the commute to work is within an easy time frame considering driving, traffic and public transportation. Determine if local amenities suit your style. Visit on weekdays and weekends to get a rounded impression of the neighborhood. Narrow your focus to several buildings and be sure you see their traffic patterns on workdays, weekends and especially weekend evenings.
Check out several options: - Look at Pine Ridge condominiums that fit your price range, taking into consideration the monthly fees payable to the building’s association, taxes, mortgage costs and interior insurance. Discuss with local residents any additional costs and tipping customs for building help. Ask about parking; if a garage is included ask if there’s an additional fee to use it.
Check out the architecture: - Consider the interior of the condominium unit and determine if the basic design suits your needs. Major structural changes are difficult to do and may have to be approved by the condominium board. Remodel with the approval of the architectural committee. Speak with board members if you’re considering laying tile or wood flooring, as sub-flooring may be a requirement.
Check up on the following:- Ask the age of the Pine Ridge condominiums and if any upgrades have been performed on the unit as well as on the building. Note the age of the elevators as they are an expensive item to replace and often incur an assessment. Determine the building’s hurricane and earthquake preparedness if it’s located in hazard zones, and ask to read its hazard insurance policy. Investigate all amenities in the building, determining the condition of each and if future replacement or refurbishment is in order. Ask if reserves are set aside for these jobs.
