The main season for selling condos in FL is the winter months, especially January to April. If you put it on the market right now you will have a limited number of potential buyers. Also, when seasonal buyers do start looking again in the fall, your listing will by then be stale, having sat on the market for 90+ days.

You may want to wait until later in the fall to relist your condo for sale if you can afford to do so.

This would serve you well as landlords would like a lease agreement until December 2015, or earlier by month. Contact me if still interested as it is vacant and furnished. Utilities like water/sewer/trash/basic cable are included in monthly rent. ... more

Joe, When using condo's it depends on a variety of factors especially HOA's and taxes. I do know no matter what your investment is you can save tons of money when structuring a deal properly on the purchase and sale. If you are selling an investment to buy an investment there are ways to save aswell. If the seller is using the property as an investment you can leverage your purchase. Give me a call or email and we can further discuss potential or opportunities. Best, Jereme Carter 727-564-4570 ... more

Having a resource to help with HOA information and documents makes life easier for real estate agents. Recently, when selling a home in Ohio, Association Online provided me with all the HOA details for the listing, and then provided all the documents - by-laws, financial statements, covenants, etc. They made sure the package was complete, making my work easier. Their web site is well organized and very easy to use - . Call their team of experts – they are great to work with (970-226-1324). ... more

Hey Dennis, like Barry alluded to, many condo associations don't take multiple dogs. Plus, as far as an investment side, I've never understood why anyone would want to buy a condo. Values are much slower to appreciate and much quicker to depreciate from my knowledge. Your HOA fees cover maintenance but with what you pay, you can get your own maintenance!

People also think your grounds are covered with your HOA fee but there is nothing saying they can slap a special assessment on the owners to cover any major damages. I've seen people hit with special assessments upwards of $15-$25k to cover roof repairs and such that they have to come up with in 6 months or the HOA can come after you.

So again, why would someone want to buy a condo???

I am a lifetime (50+ years) resident and a 30+ years Realtor here on Treasure Island (full time since 1979) said "home" so I assume you do NOT want a condo? There ARE condos that literally share the Parking Lot of The Club? For their age a condo might be worth a look? I can be reached on 727-458-7828 if you'd like a free consultation? You have likely been inundated with inquiries, but I KNOW I can be of help! Best Regards and Season's Greetings ... more
