Buying a Condo

Investing in Beach Real Estate 

Buying a beach condo in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Perdido Key, Pensacola, Navarre, Fort Walton Beach, Destin.
When buying a condominium home, you assume a portion of any liabilities of the Homeowner's Association.

Homeowner Association: An improperly managed condominium can expose you to significant financial liability, especially if the Association is Owner Managed; while the Board of Directors of Owner Managed communities may be professionals, they generally do not have a background in real estate and community associations.

Common Property: Poorly maintained components such as the roof, building-envelope, elevators, etc. can cost HOA members $1000’s in assessments.

Legal: Pending legal issues such as lawsuits & foreclosures can result in hefty "special assessments" that the HOA members must pay.

Financial: A lack of financial planning by the Board of Directors can lead to an inadequate Reserve Fund, requiring current HOA members to fund the repair & replacement of major components out of their pockets.
