You need advice from someone who has reviewed the condo financial statements and minutes of the association meetings. One side of the argument is that now that they have completed the work the building is in great shape. The other side is that if they spent all their money on a big project and the maintenance fund is depleted, what else is going to come up for repair, and how will they raise the money? Sounds like a special assessment to me, which would certainly affect the market value.
