After you complete a condo inspection, you'll need to make a major decision: Should you move forward with your condo purchase or rescind your offer?

Ultimately, there are several important questions to assess before you finalize your decision on a condo, including:

1. What was discovered during the property inspection?

Study the results of a condo inspection closely. By doing so, you'll be able to learn about a condo's strengths and weaknesses and plan accordingly.

A property inspector will evaluate a condo both inside and out. He or she also will provide honest, unbiased feedback, enabling you to make an informed decision about how to proceed with a condo.

Take into account major and minor condo problems that a property inspector discovers. And if this inspector finds minor flaws associated with a condo, you may want to stay the course and move forward with your initial proposal.

On the other hand, if a property inspector finds significant problems with a condo, i.e. issues that may prove to be costly and time-consuming, you may want to consider rescinding your offer. Or, in this case, you can always ask the condo owner to complete property repairs before you finalize a condo purchase.

2. How much will it cost to perform assorted condo repairs?

The costs associated with condo repairs will vary. However, if you allocate the time and resources to learn about condo problems and the costs associated to fix these issues, you may be able to avoid expensive, time-intensive mistakes.

For example, consider what might happen if a property inspector discovers a defective kitchen light switch in a condo. Although this light switch is a problem, the time and costs needed to repair or replace the faulty light switch likely are minimal. As such, a condo buyer may choose to ignore this problem, or a condo owner may be willing to complete the fix quickly.

Conversely, consider what could happen if a property inspector finds that a condo's furnace is defective. It may cost thousands of dollars to fix or replace a faulty furnace. As a result, a condo buyer may ask the property seller to repair or replace the defective furnace. And if the condo owner fails to do so, a buyer may choose to walk away from the condo purchase altogether.

3. Can I enjoy this condo both now and in the future?

It is essential to consider both the short- and long-term ramifications of a condo purchase. That way, a condo buyer can determine whether a property can serve him or her well for years to come.

A property inspection offers valuable information that a buyer can use to assess the pros and cons of purchasing a condo. Furthermore, a condo buyer who works with an experienced real estate agent can get the support needed to make the best decision possible.

Consider the aforementioned questions as you evaluate your options following a condo inspection, and you should have no trouble deciding whether a particular condo is right for you.

Condos have been gaining in popularity for a number of years for people across many segments of the population. From couples who are just starting out together to retirees, and everyone in between, condos are a smart choice that offer many advantages. In order to determine if they are the right choice for you, read on below. Ownership of Your Home Unlike renting a home, or apartment, a condo is a true investment in your future. You will have the deed to your own home so you know that all the money you pay into it will result in you actually having something to show for it. You Can Sell, or Rent, Later In spite of your condo being attached to others in the complex, it is still yours to sell if you want to. This means that you still have the freedom to move wherever and whenever you want. Conversely, you can rent out your condo if you need to move and it suits your needs better. Really, since the condo is yours, the choice is yours as well. Your Responsibilities End at Your Front Door One of the most attractive things about owning a condo is the fact that your responsibilities end literally at your front door. While you are responsible for repairs to your appliances, and the like, that you have in your home, your condo association is responsible for the lawn maintenance, snow removal and other routine outdoor tasks. This allows you to fully concentrate on your own home. Of course, this is not a free service, though. Your monthly condo association fees pay for this service. The condo association decides which service provider to use by a vote of the board. Being on the board gives you the opportunity to make a real difference in how your community is run. Close Knit Community Having a condo in a planned community that caters to a specific portion of the population such as retirees or young families allows you to have neighbors that are in the same life stage as yourself. This gives you plenty of opportunities to make lifelong friendships as well as building a support network. This type of support is something that many people often miss due to their life circumstances, so it is a particularly positive aspect of condo ownership. A condo can offer you an array of benefits that could be suited to your circumstances. As always, take the time to research your options thoroughly before making a decision.
