Condominiums are a great option for people who do not wish to have the responsibilities associated with homeownership, such as yard work. Homeowners are responsible for the maintenance of their home and property. If you lack the time or ability to perform property maintenance, a condominium is an alternative to homeownership that requires less of a commitment. Most condos require membership in a homeowners' association, which provides property maintenance for a monthly or annual fee. Veterans who would like to purchase a condo through the VA Home Loan Program should be aware of some important information.
Once you have found a condo you would like to purchase, your lender will assist you to complete the appraisal, home inspection and necessary paperwork required for purchase. Be careful when choosing a condo community, and read all the bylaws and regulations of the homeowners' association. Some condominium communities have strict regulations regarding the outside appearance of their condos, so be sure to find a community that suits you.
