Pay Attention People!

Over almost 20 years in real estate, something that always surprises me is how little attention strata owners pay to the minutes, AGM's, & many things that will affect them.  What will get everyone's attention is a proposal for a Special Levy that has a specific $$ amount attached to it-as it should.

Insurance coverage is important & especially deductibles on insurance.  It often gets missed by owners as it doesn't have that specific $$ amount attached to it until it's time for a claim. 

Deductibles have been going up as Stratas look for ways to minimize operating costs but that will have a real financial impact on Strata owners when there is damage.

With every Strata purchase I advise Buyers a to take their policy to their insurance broker to ensure that they are not only covered for contents of their home but also for current deductibles & any improvments to the original construction.  That's Step 1!  Step 2 is to do this on an annual basis.

Pay attention & protect your investment & your wallet!
