Your Guide to Buying Calgary Condominium ForeclosuresCondo Foreclosure Tips

If you are thinking about buying a Calgary condo foreclosure listing then you need to make sure you understand the process, any risks and how to protect yourself.

Here's a quick overview to some of the pitfalls of buying a foreclosure and how you can avoid them.

Do Your Due Diligence

For starters, see my article on doing your Calgary Condo Diligence; this process applies to every condominium regardless of whether it is being sold by a seller or a bank. Victoria Park Condos CalgaryChocolate Condos Victoria Park CalgaUnion Square Calgary Condos Victoria Park

When you buy a Calgary condominium from a seller they will provide you with copies of the most current condominium documents as described in your offer to purchase. The difference with buying a foreclosure is the bank typically will not provide you with these documents and you would have to obtain them on your own and for a price.

There are ways you can acquire the condominium documents for the best possible cost. To discuss this and other tips contact me anytime and I will be happy to go over those details with you.

Another major difference when you are buying a Calgary condo foreclosure is that when you go to get a mortgage - depending on your qualifying criteria - in some instances banks will not lend money for condo buildings with known problems, special assessments or with incomplete and or missing condominium documents.

This is another reason why you need a Calgary Condominium REALTOR® and Certified Condominium Specialist (CCS®) as your expert adviser to help you navigate the transaction. My only goal is to help you accomplish your real estate goals with all of your interests protected and a focus on getting the best value possible.
