Wilmington NC Real Estate, Condo Purchases Require Estra Steps

I saw this article in our REALTOR magazine that definitely affects the Wilmington area market, including the beaches.  Homebuyers that are thinking about purchasing a condominium should review a long list of documents to make sure that the property they are considering is a solid buy in this challenging market.

The following information is a the top of the must-consider list:

  • Budget. Examine the current budget, a year-to-date statement of income and expenses, and a couple of previous years’ budgets to see how they’ve changed.
  • Reserve study. Understand the plan for maintenance and how it will be paid for.
  • Special assessments. Ask if there have been any and whether more are planned.
  • Delinquencies. How many owners are behind in their payments? Many lenders say no more than 15 percent of owners can be in arrears or they won’t write mortgages in the complex.

Make sure that you ask your lender exactly what you will need prior to writing a contract or you may be wasting your time.  To learn more about this topic or Wilmington Real Estate contact me at 910-431-9395 or visit my website at www.livingbythecoast.com.
