Tips and information on buying a Condominium in Irvine California.
With all the many choices of condos in Irvine California how do you even begin to know where to start? There’s the top end high rise condos and there are smaller more quaint condos and every price point in between. Buying a condo is a fabulous way to own your own home, gain equity yet still have the comfort of letting someone else do a lot of the outside work for you. No yards to mow or maintain, no siding to paint or roofs to repair. Owning a condo in Irvine may be one the best ideas for living in Orange County.
There are many choices when it comes to condos and the best way to get a better sense of what’s available is to let a professional help you every step of the way. An Irvine Realtor can really make the process easy and hassle free showing you only the homes you prefer in your neighborhood and your price range. You certainly don’t want a list of hundreds of Irvine condos to go through not knowing what each amenity offers or how to properly buy one.
A condo is a little different than a regular house in that there are different requirements to the purchase and sale agreement. Typically the by-laws or rules of the condo association must be agreed upon prior to closing. You are free to review all the rules and terminate the deal should something not be quite right. You typically can do this even after you put in an offer so there’s no fear of loosing the condo while you review the paperwork. If ever there is something you don’t understand feel free to ask your Irvine Realtor and if it’s something that needs to be legally advisable I will suggest this at this time.
You will still want an inspection though.
Make sure you don’t neglect this part of the purchase process just because you won’t have to worry about the external parts of the home. These may still play a part in your decision to continue the purchase. Plus, you can learn as much about your investment as possible. Many times home inspectors can let you know how well kept the exterior is and this can be an indication of future issues or how the association resolves them.
You still have just as many rights as a home buyer as if you were buying a single family residence. You can ask for repairs, funds afterward or terminate the deal altogether if you are unsatisfied with the results. Make sure you know your rights and as your Irvine Realtor it is my duty to inform you of every detail before you sign something. I want you to make an informed decision about your Irvine Condo.
