To ensure you’re choosing the right condo or townhouse that will continue to provide value to you and your family, it’s crucial to have a thorough home inspection to ensure you’re making an informed decision. A professional home inspector will meticulously evaluate various aspects of the whole condo or townhouse property, including all accessible communal areas, as well as a general evaluation of the buildings exterior to provide you with a comprehensive assessment or not only your new condo or townhome, but for the building as a whole. Knowing whether or not you are purchasing a property in a building with years of deferred maintenance and neglect can help save you down the line from financial stressors like: raised HOA fees, unexpected repairs inside your unit, or high priced association or building maintenance repair assessments. In truth, buying a condo or townhome without any assessment of the property’s condition or the building management’s future plans for restoration and repair can be incredibly expensive risk to your financial future. Here are some of the many reasons why a condo or townhome inspection can save you time, money and reduce potential future stress.
