Let me guess…you have found a condo/townhome that you absolutely love – BUT have no idea as to the “health” of the complex it belongs to. Or maybe you’ve identified a single family home in a planned community that you love, yet CC&R’s firmly guide resident policies (your roof type, paint color, etc.). Perhaps you’ve attempted to decipher the CC&R data…but the volume and details felt beyond overwhelming.
You are not alone.
When it comes to assessing a home’s value, the appraisal process serves as a second set of eyes. But who is going to help you measure the homeowner association’s value? How do you know if the governing guidelines include appropriate liability protection, if reserves are sufficient to meet the community’s age & condition or how existing bylaws are enforced?
