Condos like Las Olas Beach Club are typically a “safe bet” when exploring condos for sale to call home.  Just like you would a traditional single family home, there are things you should be aware of regardless of how highly regarded a condo may be.  With the ups and downs of the market, risks have increased considerably.

If Las Olas condos like the Beach Club sound appealing, do take a look at the minutes of the board meetings.  There may common problems that several owners are not pleased with which could affect your decision or perhaps impending projects you weren't aware that could also sway your decision.  This will give you a good idea of what you may or may not be willing to live with.

Delinquency rates are also an important factor to be aware of. If several owners aren't making their association payments, there may be an underlying problem such as an association that's underfunded or a large portion that are unhappy for whatever.  Delinquency can potentially make it tougher to sell a unit if you're dealing with delinquency.

Again, these problems are virtually non-existent at a building like Las Olas Beach Club.  Being aware of them however can make your search for Fort Lauderdale condos significantly easier and not to mention safer.

Association fees are a standard requirement of owning condos like Las Olas Beach Club.  There are maintenance fees that must be paid or fees for extra perks like cable television.  When it comes to the latter, what happens when a provider decides to hike up its fees?  Who's responsibility is it to take care of paying those extra dollars each month?

Your first stop should be to read up on the Bulk Service Agreement, a contract detailing what the financial obligations are between a condo association like Las Olas Beach Club and the cable or satellite television company providing the service.  This agreement (which you can request a copy in writing) should detail whether the cable provider has acted improperly by hiking up the fees required of an owner. If extra charges are legally due, the contract should also mention who's responsible for paying up.

In this case, Las Olas Beach Club is only used as an example but make sure that you understand the fine print before scoffing when a provider decides to add on an extra fee for additional channels or receivers with fancy new features.

Avergage sold prices at the Las Olas Beach Club in Fort Lauderdale, Florida have remained steady at $400 per square foot for the last 6 months. Prices still remain at 2003 levels and are close to pre-construction prices at the Las Olas Beach Club. Please keep in mind that this average number excludes any of the higher floor C's, CR's, or D's that typically demand higer prices at the Las Olas Beach Club. I am speaking of the specific floor plans in the previous sentence and they can be found in the floor plan tab at the top of the home page of the website. However, there hasn't been a recent sale in any of those higher floor plans for a benchmark. Thanks for checking out the site. Come back soon for more valuable info.....

Home price index shows 1st annual gain in 3 years!!!!! Home prices in February posted their first annual increase in more than three years. Home prices are up more than 3 percent from the bottom in May of 2009, but are still off 30 percent from the May 2006 peak. Is this the sign of times to come?
