It is only 0-30% funded HIGH risk, if 30-70% funded MEDIUM risk,<br/>2. If the HOA is not saving anywhere close to the recommended amount, and<br/>3. the HOA is not making the capital improvements per year listed on the study.<br/><br/>If your HOA board and mgmt co is NOT doing their job, owners need to recall the board and get a new mgmt co. Don't wait until you get hit with a big special assessment.<br/><br/>Owners in HOAs have signed away their US Constitutional Rights and become business partners in a non profit corporation with all their neighbors and can be assessed for loans, lawsuits, settlements, construction defects, liabilities and disaster rebuilds. <br/><br/>Owners should also check the court records to see if the HOA is involved with any lawsuits. Google 'x county superior court' and go to find a case; view files @ courthouse!.<br/><br/>The mgmt co industry lobbys work to keep them self governed, and claim to protect property values. I do not see that in many condos. The values suffer when the property is NOT maintained. Too many owners are hit with huge assessments. Owners need to be involved.<br/><strong><br/>AGENTS CAN HELP!</strong> Use this info above and include a dues comparison to send out to owners living in HOAs!

We both want to sell, but disagree on approach. She wants to sell immediately to a broker who offered a very low offer compared to past price sales, but will buy it as-is. I would prefer to counter-offer the broker for a little more, but my sister thinks that would ruin the deal somehow. She is very emotional about everything, and she is executor of the will. We could hire a real-estate agent and get a lot more money, but we are both from out of town and we are worried that something could happen to the house while we are away, or that we could be liable for things that we can't deal with from out of town. My sister wants to make decisions fast and put this all behind her. I do too, but I don't want to end up regretting something that causes me to lose out on tens of thousands of dollars. Any helpful advice is appreciated.<br \><br \>6 replies Sun, 29 Jun 2014 19:25:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Inherited-a-house-sister-wants-to-make-a-quick-decision/547749/ 2014-06-29T19:25:00Z
