Condos are fantastic purchases, whether it's your primary residence or it's an investment property. When you're handed a copy of the bylaws in escrow, make sure you take the time to review them. Look for big red flags. These include outlandish penalties, aggressive foreclosure clauses, and restrictions on pets, cars, and rentals. Look to make sure that the HOA is dutifully collecting the right amount of money to fund the common areas. Think about whether the rules you're reading sound both fair and compassionate. The best condo associations are the ones that encompass both of these qualities!
