Dear Mister Condo,
My wife and I are newlyweds and my father wants to buy us a condo. Is there anything we should know before he does?
Mister Condo replies:
J.H., Congratulations! A new wife and now, maybe, a new home! There certainly are a great many things you should know before your father purchases a condo for you. I could ask you a whole bunch of questions here or I could give you a website link I often refer people to: https://blog.caionline.org/what-to-know-before-you-buy-in-a-community-association/
If you read this article and think condo living is right for you, then give Dad a big hug and let him purchase that condo for you. If not, you might be better off asking Dad to invest in a house for you instead. It would be far better for you and your new bride to live happily ever after in the right kind of home for you. Best wishes!
