This information is important for home buyers to have before they close on a new home. It helps them determine any future risks and also provides them with the information they need to assist with their decision.
Real estate broker, Association Management Specialist and CPA, Gail Pizetoski founded Condo and HOA Smart after 25 years experience working with Condos and HOAs as an auditor, tax preparer, association manager, trainer and industry consultant. Now, her in-depth industry experience is benefitting homeowners.
Pizetoski says that real estate agents and prospective home buyers have the task of researching a property’s association early on in the buying process—research that can be time consuming and daunting to most buyers who lack the time and experience to do the proper Due Diligence.
That’s where Condo and HOA Smart steps in.
“All HOA-governed communities are subject to rules and regulations, but many people buy into a community and don’t know what they are getting into,” Pizetoski said. “What types and sizes of pets are allowed? Are there rental restrictions?
It is important that home buyers know exactly what they’re getting, beyond the location and number of bedrooms a property offers. This is especially important for the many homes located in communities governed by Condominium and Homeowner’s Associations (HOAs).
Condo and HOA Smart answers those questions and more through their Due Diligence process that includes inspections and analysis of an HOAs governing documents, rules and regulations, cash flow, financial statements, reserves, budgets and more. This information is used to determine the financial health and any livability issues of an HOA for the benefit of real estate agents and home buyers.
“Having audited many HOAs and founded and managed an association management company for ten years, we know community associations inside and out,” Pizetoski said. “We have extensive experience and a strong background in this industry and are thoroughly familiar with reading the governing documents, analyzing the financial statements and we know the right questions to ask. The inspection report that we provide is just as important as your property inspection, if not more.”
