All You Need to Know About Buying Condos for Sale

by A&M Homes Your Home Tells Your Story
To own a condo is a hybrid ownership as it is not a traditional structure in the property ownership. Many characteristics are there that can help you to define ownership of condominiums. An individually owned unit is the space that is within the boundaries and that have been specified. It also includes multiple rooms as well as interior walls that divide different rooms in that specific unit. It also includes the storage areas and balconies. The unit is airspace without land but is still considered real estate.



  1. Taking care of common areas
    Common areas are the other parts of such a property. This is the area that all unit owners share. This includes roof, lobbies, halls, foundation, floors, elevators, ceilings and basement and so on. Others are installations like water, gas, electricity and heating. There are other areas such as the parking lots, swimming pool and so on, which are also a part of the common areas that are shared by the unit owners.

  2. Property interest
    Property interest in the property is conveyed through deed. The owner can sell his interest if he wills to do so. Just like other kinds of property, an individual can hold ownership, or by two or more than two individuals, by a wife and a husband or business entity.

  3. Taxes
    Just as is the case with other kinds of properties, the condo unit owners have to part with property taxes as required by law. Every unit and the interest in common areas are usually deemed as a package and is taxed and assessed at an individual level. Common areas aren't assessed and taxed separately. The owner is responsible for the taxes within their own parcel.

  4. Associations
    Usually, condominiums or unit owners associations are established when the condos are created so as to make sure that all the owners are able to maintain and manage the entire property as a team. Usually, a property manager from outside is assigned to deal with all the developments and property management.
