Condos For SaleCondo Bylaws

This is something a lot of people don’t look into before buying a condo, but buying a condo means you are sharing walls, and often air, with your neighbours. This can cause a lot of headaches, and if you are new to the world of condos you may be in for a shock. Condo bylaws are arbitrary ‘laws’ designed by a board of condo owners in an effort to make a building more comfortable for everyone.

What are included in these bylaws?

Condo bylaws often include regulations regarding pets, whether you can have private laundry facilities, what you can have on your balcony (or not have) and what the rules are regarding air conditioning units.

Sell HomeWhat is it?

A seller’s market refers to a real estate market where the buying and selling rate is healthy and the home values are high. In other words, this is a market that benefits the seller and can sometimes be difficult for a new buyer to get into. These markets can be intimidating but it is possibly to make it work for you.

The sellers

What is it?

A buyer’s market is a colloquial phrase referring to a time when the housing market is weak, and therefore housing prices are low. This makes it easy for buyers to pick up properties, but it’s also a time when not as many people are out there buying

What causes it?

Generally the housing market reflects the state of the economy. If the economy is bad, people are often losing their jobs and having trouble paying their mortgages. For most people, this isn’t a good time to buy a home unless you have job security and can afford to take the risk. Economic downtowns devalue homes, which leaves many home owner’s upside down on their mortgages (meaning they owe more on the home than what its worth). Because of this, many homeowners

Sometimes real estate can be really tough. You don’t always get to live where you want to, especially if where you reside is dictated by your job. When you routinely move for work reasons, which is often the case for military personnel, teachers and business leaders, you often find yourself in towns or cities with struggling economies.
