What you need to know before buying into a Community Association, Coop or Condo


One of the factors that many homeowners don’t think about is that for most of us, our primary residence is our single largest investment. Investment accounts are managed by carefully selected financial professionals. On the other hand, if you live in a community association and are not on the board, you basically write a “blank check” to those who are. In this webinar Tina Larsson, CEO and co-founder of the Folson Group, will discuss how community associations work and how you can take a more active role in your investment and community association.

In this discussion, you will learn:

  • What you need to know before buying into a community association

  • How to take a more active role in your investment

  • How to protect and increase the value of your investment
