Florida is a popular vacation designation and retirement location. Consequently, you will notice that we have many communities of condominiums throughout the state, including Jacksonville. Condos have many benefits for owners, including access to higher-level amenities, strong community involvement, great locations, build equity in a home, invest in rental property, and no yard or outdoor maintenance. However, there are some things a person should consider before purchasing a condo such as the maintenance fees, dues, and extremely close proximity to your neighbors.
Before you rush to purchase a condominium unit, you should discuss your concerns with an experienced attorney.
