Relocation Tip – Temporary Housing

Relocating to a new city can be overwhelming.  So, when possible, plan on staying in some sort of temporary housing when you first arrive.  This will give you time to decide on which area of town you like, the type of home you want, and what is available to you.  It will also allow you to take your time when looking for a new home..  You don’t ever want to feel rushed into having to get a new place right away.

Let me know if you need assistance with short term rental options.  I can help you with options for an extended stay hotel or furnished corporate apartment for your first few weeks/months in town, giving you more time to get situated.

Condo Living

If you enjoy a low maintenance lifestyle then condo living may be a great fit for you.  You can have the advantages of home ownership without the extensive maintenance.  In a condo, your monthly maintenance fee generally includes exterior upkeep and insurance on the building along with the use of common areas.  Many condominiums in Florida have a pool that you can enjoy along with other amenities.

Here are some things to know when considering a condo purchase.

1.)  Condo Monthly Fees – These are sometimes referred to as HOA (Homeowner’s Association) fees or maintenance fees.  You will want to find out what is included in the fee.  Although you may think of condo fees as just being an added expense, they often include a lot of things that you would have to pay separately anyway, such as hazard insurance, exterior maintenance, lawn/green space care, and taking care of common areas.  Some also include such items as monthly cable,   water and sewer, pest control, and others.

2.)  Condo Bylaws And Rules – It is important to review these documents thoroughly prior to purchasing a condominium.  If items such as the policy on pets do not coincide with your lifestyle, it’s best to find out before moving in.

3.)  Special Assessments – Always inquire about any current assessments on the condo.

4.)  Reserves – Ask if the HOA has any funds in reserve to help take care of large maintenance items, such as roofing, exterior painting, etc.  If the reserves are strong it can help to lower or avoid the assessments mentioned in #3 above.
