  • What causes buyers to walk out of a condo within 10 seconds of viewing the unit
  • How to properly value comparable condo sales (and why you've probably been doing it wrong)
  • Why the common grounds of a condominium are just as important as the unit itself
  • Why doing a few unconventional things when you view a condo in-person can help save a big headache down the road
  • The biggest mistake to avoid when purchasing a large condo unit that had been combined by the joining of two adjacent units
  • How the amenity package will factor into your decision (even if you do not care about amenities)
  • Why capping the maximum monthly condo fees in your search may end up hurting your search
  • And so much more

Mostly common sense, some good tips

I find the narrator's voice relaxing, but the content was mostly common sense. This may be helpful for people completely new to the real estate scene, like never even watched a TLC home reno show kind of new. For the price he did have one or two tips I hadn't thought about.

An Absolute must read! Valuable information!

Wow what an eye opener! I learned so much helpful information made pages of notes. Seriously I never thought about phone reception in a unit that’s so important especially if you work from home. This is a must read if you are looking to purchase a condo.
