Jupiter Florida Rentals or Jupiter Country Club Homes for Sale?
Now is the perfect timing to find Jupiter Florida rentals or buy Jupiter Country Club homes for sale before the season begins. Whether you are a first time buyer looking to purchase a dream home or retired couple searching for new homes for sale in Jupiter, it can be an intimidating process, especially if you wait until season and have to compete against many other buyers. Many buyers arrive in January to look for Jupiter homes for sale in a booming real estate market. This is when most other buyers and “snowbirds” are here on winter vacation and staying at Jupiter Florida rentals while looking for a Jupiter Country Club home.
The best time to buy is in the summer and early fall when there is most inventory and least amount of buyers in Jupiter Florida. It is very important to work with one of the best agents in Jupiter who has experience to advice buyers about price, best value, comps and return on investment (ROI) if you intend to invest in Jupiter Country Club homes for sale, but equally important is the timing, season or month which should be off season.
However, if you choose a top Jupiter real estate agent to represent you who knows the Jupiter FL real estate market and is highly competent at doing research and negotiating contracts then the timing to buy a Jupiter real estate investment property is less crucial. It is more important to work with one of the best agents in Jupiter to make an informed decision about investing in real estate. To have the most Jupiter Country Club homes for sale to choose from at the best price the “off peak” or “off season” is highly recommended. Also, working with an experienced Jupiter real estate expert with knowledge of the Realtors of the Palm Beaches & Greater Fort Lauderdale (RAPB + GFLR) multiple listing service (MLS) tools, zoning, property setbacks, pet friendly, vehicle and rental restrictions and who does not rely on Jupiter Florida Zillow.
A professional Jupiter real estate agent can help tenants with rentals in Jupiter FL and work with buyers to identify the market trends that represent buying opportunities at the best price given local market conditions. Practically, many buyers find rentals in Jupiter FL to see how they like the area before purchasing a Jupiter country club home. For buyers who recognize that Jupiter Country Club offers among the most affordable private golf club membership options available, except PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens which is a very popular but much older community, buying Jupiter Country Club homes for sale during the off season with less competition and better prices is the best way to go.
There are a few trends that make the off season, summer time or early fall, the best time to invest in Jupiter Florida real estate:
- Few home buyers = Less competition
This is the best advantage because with few home buyers to compete against in the local real estate market during the summer time, it will increase the chances to purchase a Jupiter Country Club home at the lowest price available all year. This is also true for finding Jupiter Florida rentals. The prices of rentals in Jupiter FL can be 30% less for unfurnished homes in the summer than in the winter. For furnished properties, the prices for Jupiter Florida rentals are often 2-3 times more in the winter.
- Less competition = Best real estate prices
With fewer home buyers in the market looking for the best real estate investments in Jupiter Florida whether furnished Jupiter Florida rentals or Jupiter Country Club homes for sale, without a doubt the properties will be much more affordable for rent and for sale off season than in season. With fewer buyers, there are less bidding wars and less sellers are receiving multiple offers for their houses to choose between. This means with less competition, you have more negotiating power to acquire your dream home at the best price.
- Best real estate prices = Extra perks
With more negotiating power in your hands, you’re in a strong position, and can ask for special accommodations for rentals in Jupiter FL or Jupiter Country Club homes for sale. Landlords and sellers during the off season may be more willing to pay for repairs that will save tenants and buyers money on their Florida house hunting journey.
No matter which season you decide to find rentals in Jupiter FL or buy Jupiter Country Club homes for sale, each season has its own benefits as long as you work with a top Jupiter Florida real estate agent who is very knowledgeable of the local market conditions that only a human being can contribute and does not rely on automated systems such as the Jupiter Florida Zillow.

Is North Palm Beach a Good Place to Live?
Both Palm Beach County and Martin County as well as local Cities, Towns and Villages have spent millions of dollars to have several beachfront and waterfront parks dedicated to the public making outdoor sport activities and natural areas easily accessible and mostly free to local residents and visitors. This has limited residential and commercial development in these areas. One such park is Loggerhead Park in Juno Beach – home of Loggerhead Marinelife Center which promotes conservation of Florida’s natural coastal ecosystem and mainly known for their recovery and adoption of sea turtles. Many coastal area parks offer free guarded beaches along Ocean Drive or A1A, Intracoastal waterfront ocean access boat ramps such as Burt Reynolds Park in Jupiter, public har-tru and hard court tennis courts such as at Jupiter Lighthouse Park or carlin Park in Jupiter, beach volleyball courts, baseball fields and bocce courts in Carlin Park, walking and jogging trails in Carlin Park and along Jupiter Riverwalk from the beach to Jupiter Yacht Club and Harbourside Place, fishing piers such as Juno Beach Pier and DuBois Park, barbeque areas along the south side of Jupiter Inlet, party pavilions by Marcinski in Juno Beach and much more.

Palm Beach Florida Golfer
Make Palm Beach Gardens or Jupiter Your Florida Home
If you are obsessed with the game of golf and looking for concierge style living near excellent shopping and restaurants, then I highly recommend Old Palm Golf Club as a top Florida championship golf course with no tee times. The Old Palm Golf Studio offers V-1 equipped hitting bay and Trackman technology, obstacle filled double ended driving range and full-length Par 3, Par 4 and Par 5 practice holes.
Old Palm Golf Club is located near the intersection of PGA Blvd and Florida Turnpike in Palm Beach Gardens Florida, as are some of the top golf courses and top country clubs in America – Old Palm Golf Club, Old Marsh Golf Club, Ballenisles Country Club, PGA National Golf Club and Mirasol Country Club.

If $175,000 club membership is above your budget, and you are looking for a slightly more affordable country club membership near the beach, consider Toll Brother’s community Frenchmans Reserve Golf Club with $150,000 golf membership located close to both Juno Beach and Jupiter beaches.
I strongly recommend nearby Jupiter Country Club also built by Toll Brothers with world-class amenities, including a tennis stadium, for $18,500 golf membership fee. Yes, that is correct!! $100,000 less…
There are many good reasons why Palm Beach Gardens Florida is a mecca for golfers and has been the headquarters for The Professional Golfers’ Association of America (PGA), with 29,000 members, for decades. Although The PGA recently announced that the headquarters will move to Frisco, a suburb of Dallas TX in 2021, the Palm Beach Gardens FL location will remain a hub for The PGA and American golf.

Not a Regular Real Estate Agency
We had the opportunity to meet with Susanna Grubb from the Ultimate Florida Real Estate in Jupiter. Susanna has many years of experience working as a real estate agent. Last year, she decided to make a major change in her life. She decided to do what many people dream of doing – start her own company. One year later, the company has expanded to three employees.
Ultimate Florida Real Estate is not a regular brokers agency. The company sells more than houses – they sell a lifestyle. If it’s the boat life, the golf life, or simply the beach life you want – then Ultimate Florida Real Estate can assist.
Since Susanna holds a master’s degree in Technical Communication, she can successfully combine the best of both worlds to expand her company. In addition to selling a lifestyle, the Ultimate Florida Real Estate differentiates in the way they hold an open house. When buying through the Ultimate Florida Real Estate, you don’t necessarily need to physically be in the house in order to see it. Through Matterport 3D (a new technology), you can virtually ”walk” around in the house in front of your computer screen. Especially foreigners appreciate this technology. The Ultimate Florida Real Estate offer all their customers selling their properties a Matterport 3D Tour, regardless of the price range.
Susanna believes voice search is the next big thing. Voice search is talking to your digital devices instead of writing. Therefore, it’s important to make sure your company comes as an alternative up when someone asks for companies in the industry. Because of her use of new technology, Susanna Grubb is truly a broker of the future.
Susanna has been through quite the journey in the past year! However, she says that building a brand and website is difficult and time-consuming. You must be willing to give those extra hours.
We would like to thank Susanna Grubb for giving us the insights of a broker in South Florida.

Who is the best real estate agent to buy or sell your house or condo?
REAL ESTATE LEADERSHIP
With over 20,000 real estate agents in Palm Beach County. One thing that divides them is technology. Constant changes in web design, SEO and social media make it nearly impossible to keep up. Most agents outsource tasks due to time or technical constraints but without understanding IDX data feed, listings may not broadcast to potential buyers thus costing sellers both time and money. With such competition I can’t spill the beans.
I share my knowledge and skills by volunteering for local and international organizations.
- I commit to be recognized as a trusted adviser.
- I immerse myself into the local community.
- I sign up for volunteering and raise funds for charity.
- I connect with friends and groups on social media.
- I plan social events to connect people and enrich their lives.
Community involvement gives me in-depth local knowledge. As a professional real estate agent, I also strive to possess these highly valuable leadership skills:
- Expertise in web design to rank high on search engines.
- Knowledge of imaging, blogging and social media tools.
- Strong ability to research, negotiate and interpret contracts.
- Engage in personal, social and professional networking.
- Ability to connect with people from various demographics.
- Sincere, trustworthy and immersed into the community.
BRANDING and MARKETING
- Represent trusted brand, professional sales and marketing style.
- Innovative communication and presentation skills.
- Ability to present concepts in multiple languages to people from different cultures.
“When my mother decided to sell… we chose Susanna… informed, responsible and committed to providing excellent customer service. We had a signed contract in less than a week. I would recommend Susanna without reservations …” – Donna P, Seller (2013)
“Susanna had to do a lot of explaining [in Swedish] about the buying process, negotiations, the real estate market and all the pit falls… She was very attentive to our needs and had answers to all our questions… and we are very satisfied with the house we finally bought, very much thanks to Susanna,” – Henric S, Buyer (2015)

Jupiter to Palm Beach FL Lifestyles and Things To Do
Are you a Tequesta or Jupiter boater? I came across this awesome speed zone map for the Jupiter Inlet, Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) and Loxahatchee River. It shows slow speed and minimum wake areas on the Loxahatchee River November 15th – March 31st for boating safety and manatee protection. Check out my other Boating Jupiter Inlet post with links to how to obtain a boating license and where to find Jupiter boat storage, marinas, docks and fuel docks.
Most agents have a few social media profiles and platforms where they are actively engaged. You may be surprised how many real estate agents just register and get lost in the labyrinth. Other agents have been extremely successful in one or more social media. As message recipients get spammed and agents loose control, to some extent or other, the importance of old fashion personal relationships and networking are emerging as the winners.
Most real estate agents have had a template real estate website at one point or other. In the beginning it cost about $39/month after setup fees for the site and the same for the IDX feed. In those days – life was easy!! In 2015, template websites with exceptions are not favorable in terms of search engine optimization (SEO). What does that mean? It means unless an agent knows the latest technology or hires someone who does – they are behind. Again, personal relationships and networking are emerging as the winners as VERY FEW (!!) agents have the technical knowledge required today.

That’s what we do – sail!! It’s funny that it has taken me several years to add Sailing to my list of Florida Things To Do. My children have sailed in Florida for 8-10 years respectively. I have followed my husband around the racing sailing circuits in the United States and Europe for 30 years. To me, it has been such a fantastic way of life.
Around Palm Beach and West Palm Beach, there is youth and adult sailing lessons offered at Palm Beach Sailing Club (PBSC) and The Sailfish Club. Levels available depend on interest at any given time.
In areas such as Fort Lauderdale and Miami, there are several regular recreational to Olympic level racing programs offered as well as cruising sailing events for various fleets of boats year around. The biggest yacht clubs are Lauderdale Yacht Club (LYC) and Coral Reef Yacht Club (CRYC). Miami has at least four more active yacht clubs.
Between Palm Beach and Jupiter there are mostly power boats – occasionally we spot professional sailors on their way to Key West Race Week or the Caribbean racing circuit – mostly at Cracker Buoy Boatyard in West Palm Beach.
In Jensen Beach, near Stuart between St Lucie River and Indian River, is the US Sailing Center Martin County (USSCMC) which hosts several local and national dinghy regattas throughout the year.

Svensk mäklare i Florida kan jag hjälpa er och sälja fastigheter i Florida – investering, lägenhet vid stranden, lyxvilla o kanalhus med pool eller drömvilla i golf-område.
SAMARBETE MED ANDRA MÄKLARE – Jag samarbetar med mäklare i hela Florida, USA och utlandet. Jag kan rekommendera erfarna mäklare i andra delar av Florida med 10+ års erfarenhet.
FASTIGHETSMÄKLARE I FLORIDA
Hus till salu i Florida är både kul och spännande att söka. Det är viktigt att jobba med en erfaren fastighetsmäklare i Florida som specialiserar sig på internationella kunder. Säljaren betalar kommissionen både för köparens och säljarens fastighetsmäklare så det är bäst att ha egen representation. Kommissionen är förhandlad innan fastigheten läggs ut till salu inte under förhandlingsprocessen. Jag har mött flera svenska köpare som förhandlat själva och betalt $100.000-tals dollar över marknadsvärdet eller köpt hus med dolda problem.
Jag flyttade först till Fort Lauderdale 1981. Jag ägde både flerfamiljshus och enfamiljshus som jag renoverade, skötte och hyrde ut mellan 1992-2002. Jag tog mitt mäklarlicens i Florida 2005 och blev certifierad internationell mäklaragent (CIPS) 2008 som krävde minst tre (3) slutförda internationella transaktioner. Min universitetsutbildning bidrar till min kunskapsnivå som mäklare.

FASTIGHETER I USA
Drömmer ni om att köpa hus i Florida eller sälja fastigheter i Florida ni redan äger? Som erfaren fastighetsmäklare i Florida representerar jag både köpare och säljare och samarbetar med erfarna mäklare i hela Florida.
FASTIGHETER I FLORIDA
Apartment – Hyresrätt
Condo eller Coop – Bostadsrätt
Estate – Stor lyxvilla
Mansion – Stor “estate” eller herrgård
Multi-family – Flerfamiljshus med 2-4+ hyresrätter
Single Family – Enfamiljsvilla
Townhouse eller Townhome – Radhus med 2-3 våningar
Villa – Radhus med en våning
VAD ÄR ERA MÅL?
OM ni är säljare – vill ni säkert få högsta möjliga belopp och fixa så få saker som möjligt…
OM ni är köpare – vill ni säkert hitta ett drömhus eller condo lägenhet o göra en bra långsiktig investering…
OM ni är investerare – fråga er själva om ni vill betala säljarens pris baserat på deras skulder och planer ELLER betala ett pris baserat på era planer, mål, rättvist marknadsvärde och hyresintäkter
VEM BETALAR KOMMISSIONEN?
Säljaren betalar kommissionen för både säljarens och köparens mäklare. Köparens agent får BARA betalt om den säljer en fastighet. Den är förhandlad INNAN fastigheten läggs ut till salu i Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
VARFÖR ANVÄNDA EN EGEN MÄKLARE ISTÄLLET FÖR SÄLJARENS MÄKLARE?
Läs det en gång till….. Det är i varje parts intresse att ha egen representation. Säljarens mäklare får DUBBEL lön om de hittar en köpare. Om en köpare ringer säljarens mäklare direkt sparar INTE köparen pengar, säljaren kanske sparar pengar men med 90% sannolikhet tjänar säljarens mäklare DUBBEL lön. Ibland används försäljningsknep och ord som “once in a lifetime opportunity” – för vem???
SÖKA HUS I USA SJÄLVSTÄNDIGT ELLER MED MÄKLARE?
Som skandinaver är vi ofta välutbildade, självständiga och kan kommunicera bättre på engelska än de flesta andra. Det är jättebra fram till slutskedet av sökningen eller om det dyker upp problem. Jag skulle själv vilja veta om eventuella varningstecken och kostnader för åtgärder INNAN ett husköp än efteråt – speciellt om hjälpen från en erfaren fastighetsmäklare i Florida betalas av säljaren.
MÄKLARE I FLORIDA
Jag har bott i USA i 25 år varav 15 år i Fort Lauderdale och Jupiter, Florida. Jag har hyrt, köpt, sålt och skött hus i USA sedan 1992, varit mäklare i Florida sedan 2005, jobbat i näst största privata lyxhuset i Palm Beach, medlem i Swedish American Chamber of Commerce och kan representera er i hela Florida. Jag har en amerikansk civilingenjörsutbildning i teknisk kommunikation och beroende på prisläget kan spara er $100.000-tals dollar i inköpspris eller försäljningspris.
KÖPA HUS I FLORIDA SOM INDIVID ELLER VIA FÖRETAG?
Som svensk kan man köpa fastighet som individ bosatt i Sverige, svenskt företag eller genom att starta bolag i USA. Många startar amerikanskt bolag för att kunna dra av utgifter samt att det bara är bolagets “assets” som står på spel om något skulle gå fel. Det finns flera olika sorters bolag med för- och nackdelar. Jag vet inte vad som är bäst för er men med stor sannolikhet är det ett “Limited Liability Company – LLC” eller en “S Corporation” men en advokat (attorney) eller skatterådgivare (accountant) kan föreslå vilken företagstyp som passar bäst.
STARTA BOLAG I FLORIDA
Det finns många sätt att öppna företag i Florida. Jag har använt advokater och bolag som jag kan rekommendera.
Jag känner till företag i Florida som endast sköter skatter åt internationella kunder och kan svara på frågor angående International Tax Preparation och FIRPTA.
VAD ÄR FIRPTA?
“Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act of 1980 (FIRPTA)”
(Income tax withholding for foreign nationals.)
10% av försäljningspriset hålls här för individer som bor utomlands tills IRS (skatteverket) har fått bevis på att inkomstskatt betalas (i USA eller i utlandet) på en eventuell vinst av husförsäljning. Det tar ca 90 dagar att få tillbaka de 10%.
SOCIAL SECURITY NUMMER
Som “non-resident” kan utlänningar inte få ett “social security number” men det finns alternativ.
Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN)
Om man köper fastighet här som individ så borde man söka ett taxpayer identification number “TIN number”.
Employer ID Number (EIN)
För en firma blir motsvarigheten firmans employer ID number (aka federal tax ID number) – oftast kallat “EIN number”.
I allmänhet räknar många 2% av fastighetspriset för den årliga fastighetsskatten. Man borde inte ta stora beslut utan att ta reda på utgifterna för enskilda fastigheter. Jag kan kolla upp nästa års fastighetsskatt åt er. Varje år skickas den ut i november och kan betalas i en summa eller på avbetalning per månad eller kvartal. Säljaren betalar sin del av året som de bott där den dagen man byter ägandeskap sedan betalar köparen den i efterhand.
För en lägenhet (condominium) eller radhus (townhouse) så ingår försäkring (homeowners insurance) för byggnaden, inklusive “hurricane insurance” och “flood insurance” ibland i HOA avgiften. Försäkring för innehåll är separat men relativt billig. Hyresgäster betalar den själva. Jag kan rekommendera försäkringsbolag. För en-familjs villor och flerfamiljshus betalar köparen “home owners insurance” om det inte finns en HOA eller om den inte är inkluderad i HOA avgiften. Man måste inte ha “hurricane insurance” men det är rekommenderat. “Flood insurance” är sällan obligatoriskt men den är reducerad genom bidrag från staten och kostar betydligt mindre än “hurricane insurance.” gentligen är hurricane försäkringen en vind försäkring så därför man har en separat för “flood”. Försäkrings priserna varierar ofta vartannat år här beroende på hur många bolag som erbjuder försäkring i Florida. Det varierar även mellan olika zoner beroende på avstånd till vatten och höjd över havet. Jag kan rekommendera olika försäkringsbolag.
Lägenhet- och radhusområden har nästan alltid en Home Owners Association (HOA) eller Condo Owners Association (COA). Vissa villa områden har det med. Om det finns är det nästan alltid obligatoriskt att vara medlem. Avgiften betalas per månad eller kvartal. De intervjuar ofta köpare och hyresgäster. De sätter även restriktioner på hur ofta och hur länge en fastighet kan hyras ut t.ex. minst 90 dagar eller max 2 ggr/år. Vad som är inkluderat i avgiften varierar men täcker ofta försäkring, sopor, avlopp, kabel tv, säkerhetsvakter, gemensamma grönområden, pool, osv.
Det är vanligt att lägga minst 10% i första handpenning (deposit) samtidigt som man ger bud på en fastighet. Ju mer deposit ju starkare ser man ut som köpare. Efter inspektion perioden lägger man ofta ned en andra handpenning på ytterligare 10%.
Som köpare har man 7-14 dagar att få fastigheten inspekterad. Priset beror mest på storleken. En vanlig inspection är crka $250-350. Sedan tillkommer circa $75 for termite inspektion. De utgifterna får man inte tillbaks om man backar ut. En eventuell mögel inspektion kostar extra.
VAD HÄNDER OM JAG ÄNDRAR MIG?
Om en köpare inte längre vill köpa fastigheten efter inspektionen så kan man backa ur och få tillbaka sin deposit om det är inom inspektions-perioden. Om det är efter inspektions-perioden får man inte tillbaka sin deposit om man backar ut.
HUR LÅNG TID TAR DET ATT KÖPA HUS I FLORIDA?
Det brukar ta 30-60 dagar att köpa en fastighet men det kan ske så fort som 14 dagar. Anledningen att man inte kan köpa hus på en dag även om det är kontantköp beror på att man måste göra flera sökningar för att se om ägaren verkligen äger huset, har rätt att sälja det, inte har massa dolda skulder, osv. Köparen tar ut en titel försäkring för att skydda sig mot sådana problem.
PROOF OF FUNDS / LÅN
Det är inte många kostnader för köpare som betalar kontant eller tar internationellt lån. Jag rekommenderar att skaffa bevis på kontanter “proof of funds” eller bevis på “pre-approval” för ett lån (på engelska) innan man besöker fastigheterna här lokalt.
VAD ÄR DET FÖR AVGIFTER FÖR “CLOSING”?
Reglerna varierar i olika kommuner men i Palm Beach kommun betalas avgifterna så här.
-“Doc stamps” (stampelskatt) (0.007 * priset)
-“Tax & lien search”
-“County recording fees”
– Skatt (för sin del av året)
-Mäklar kommission för både köparens och säljarens mäklare
-“County recording fees for deed (and condo approval)”
-“Continuation fee for title search”
-“Prorated maintenance and HOA fees”
– Skatt (för sin del av året)
**Jag kan ta reda på kostnader för speciella fastigheter. I Miami Dade County, Broward County och Martin County, de kommunerna söder och norr om Palm Beach County, står köparen för flera av dessa utgifter.
Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce in Fort Lauderdale & Palm Beach (SACC-SFL) had a talk with new Trust Member Susanna Grubb to chat about her new company Ultimate Florida Real Estate and what to think about when selling or buying.
You recently started ”Ultimate Florida Real Estate”, tell me about it! Yes, I did! I’m very excited about what 2019 has to offer. I was a Florida real estate agent for various companies in Jupiter and Palm Beach for 12 years. I tried mom-and-pop brokerages and global realty brands. As an agent, you pay a portion of your commission to a broker. As I was generating 100% of my leads, I saw less and less value in what the brokers had to offer me. It was time to venture out on my own. In 2018 I was focused on creating and establishing my brand and in 2019 I’ll start hiring.
What are your biggest strengths you think?
I already have an existing buyer and seller client base, referral network and presence across social media and about 50% of my clients are Swedish. Many companies market themselves as both “local” and “global”, but I truly represent that. I have lived, worked and raised a family in Palm Beach County since 2003 so I have a lot of local knowledge for people relocating here. My biggest strengths are my higher education, vast travel experiences and respect for people from all socioeconomic backgrounds. My graduate thesis was about “schema theory”. I have a passion for SEO and that will take me to the next level.
I also know you have a masters degree in Technical Communication, how did you get in to the real estate business?
Yes, I do. When I graduated I was 7 months pregnant and had an 18 month old toddler. I also moved a week later from high-tech Seattle to old-world Normandy. I consulted in webdesign for a while. When we moved to Florida, I got attracted to real estate because of the flexible work hours. I managed my husband’s triplex in Newport RI 1992-1999 so I had handled many contracts before but as a landlord.
How is the real estate market in South Florida right now? Is it a good time for selling?
We have a great market right now – for both buyers and sellers. As more people can work remotely, we have much younger buyers moving to Florida than in the past. The market is more year-around and less seasonal. Homes in low crime areas with good schools, golf courses and medical facilities as well as beach condos and waterfront homes are hot. Look at comps sold in the past 90 days. What the seller paid is irrelevant. Realistic pricing is key!
For everyone that will sell or buy real estate, do you have some good advice?
When selling a home:
– Maximize your square footage under air. Get quotes for possible improvements and ask an experienced agent how this would effect the selling price.
– Unclutter the entire home or condo. Neutralize it so it appeals to as many potential buyers as possible.
– Ask your listing agent to hire the best photographer they know and get drone shots immediately (not as an add-on).
When buying a home:
– Request the price per square foot for the most similar active, sold and pending comps. This will show you the true value.
– Ask about pending or upcoming assessments for the condo or community. Get all financials during due diligence period.
– Find out the pet, vehicle and rental restrictions. Towns are following up on Airbnb rentals and few of them meet the HOA rules.
