Help the community by answering this question:


DO your homework, drive by , check with current owners, look at the rental cap, ratio renters versus owner occupied. Is this for investment or owner occupied. I have visited the community myself if you pay the fair market value you should be fine in the long run. Please call me with specific questions.

You would really need to contact the HOA directly to find out those answers. The delinquency rate, owner occupancy ratio, budget, and pending litigation are the keys things to look at from a lender's perspective.

Depends on your objective. Decent locational desirability but older, dated units. Values aren't likely to jump, there's a significant supply of inventory sub 100K in the market. There are distressed units in there and rentals. Fees seem to run 160-200 a month, while researching the health of the HOA involves more research, I would assume that the distressed units are behind as are others in there.

Whether to run toward or away is probably best answered by you chatting with an agent and defining your definition of success
