Condos are Complicated: Condo Experts

Spring has sprung in Victoria. You know what that means – birds chirping, flowers blooming, and seagulls, well … you know. All that aside, it’s time to start looking at the condo market again.

You may find yourself asking, ‘Why do I need a Condo Expert?’ ‘Isn’t all real estate the same?’. The short answer is, no. To understand the difference, let’s have a look at the most familiar type of real estate, the single-family home.

A house has many things to consider when purchasing; the roof, the foundation, windows, exterior, heating, drainage – it’s a lot. But that’s why we use REALTOR®’s to start with.

Well, condos have all the same considerations, and a ton more. When purchasing your condo, you and your realtor are going to be faced with a mountain of information: engineering reports, financial statements, strata bylaws, depreciation reports, meeting minutes – it’s even a lot to say. In terms we all understand, these are things like: building accessibility, can you rent your condo?, which types of pets are allowed (and which ones aren’t), is the building in need of any major repairs? But have no fear, the Condo Experts are here.

Knowing these properties and their challenges takes a deep level of understanding that comes from decades of specialized experience in the condo market. Luckily, you’ve found us – The Condo Group Real Estate, reimagined as Island Realm Real Estate – the only brokerage in Victoria specializing in helping our clients buy and sell condos.

You’re about to spend hundreds of thousands of your hard-earned dollars on your next condo, or you’re going to list your condo for sale and want to get every dollar possible out of your investment. So ask yourself, do you really want to work with a realtor that doesn’t specialize in condos?
