"Condo Buying & Ownership Made Simple is thorough, readable and well-organized...Having put in the time behind the desk and on boards, there is literally no stone unturned." ForeWord CLARION Reviews gives this book ***** 5 Stars (Highest Rating) Being in the mortgage industry for over 25 years, and having purchased several condos myself, I can only say one thing - I wish I had this book years ago Kay Senay has done a masterful job of putting together all the details that go into buying a condo - many of which people overlook all the time. Forms, calculations, and extensive checklists make this a must have for any buyer, real estate agent or mortgage lender who deals with these properties. The FAQ section in Chapter 5 ask all those questions most homebuyers are dying to know - or NEED to know to protect their investment, especially in this type of market. This book will save any condo owner or perspective owner a lot of cash - I just wish I had written it ***** - Chip Cummings, Author "Mortgage Myths," "Foreclosure Myths" and "Cashing In on Pre-foreclosures and Short Sales" If you are thinking about buying a condo, make certain you read Kay's book before you sign the contract Don't make the mistake we made and feel that reviewing the Condo Association's Declarations before finalizing the sale is sufficient. The average person is completely oblivious about what they need to look for. My husband and I bought a condo 9 years ago and our life has been full of surprises, some good and some not so great. Kay's book has been a valuable resource to me since I became involved in our Condo Association's board. I only wish it had been published prior to our move There's a lot more to living in a condo then meets the eye and you owe it to yourself to make an educated decision. I guarantee that this book will provide you with all the questions you need to have answered. ***** - Margaret L. Lanese A member of my family has owned two different condos and both experiences have been a nightmare. In one case, the condo association fees were stolen by the association manager and a long legal battle took place. Because of his experience, I have always viewed condo ownership as risky and therefore not one of my downsizing options. The book, "Condo Buying and Ownership" made me realize a condo could be a positive experience. Of course, it can. A lot of people are happy condo dwellers Kay Senay's expertise clearly outlines what you need to know; the questions to ask and what red flags to look for. It would be silly to make this type of investment without first learning the many details involved in condo ownership. "Buyer beware" will not be necessary after reading this book. Oh, or buy it for someone you love who may be thinking about going condo. They'll thank you for it. ***** - Jan Pemberton This book showed me what condo living is all about. I had no idea about everything that a buyer should consider or that an owner needs to know. All the information is in one place to learn what a community association really is. The book is clear, concise, and easy to read. Kay Senay's FAQs and Buyer's Checklists are worth the price all by themselves. What a great book ***** - Tammylee Glover I don't own a condo but I've thought about renting one. In the past I've been kind of scared about all the legalize, association by-laws, etc. Kay's book makes it easy to understand how condo associations work and the pros and cons of living in one. Having this book I feel armed for bear - I can confidently consider renting a condo knowing what to ask and how to deal with conflicts should they arise, like what I should ask about pets, parking and home improvements and how to protect my rights.
