Editorial Reviews:

Glenn Haege, America’s Master Handyman

“If you live in or are thinking of buying a condominium, you need this book.”

Book Description

More than fifty percent (50%) of residential construction in the United States is in condominiums. Moreover, baby-boomers are buying condominiums as a second or primary home in increasing numbers. Almost everyone either lives in or has a relative who lives in a condominium. Meisner will share his expertise in how to deal with the problems of buying and selling a condominium.

Who should read this book? Condo dwellers, boards of directors of community associations, developers and management firms can learn more about the unique problems of buying, selling, and living in a condominium, serving on a board, and developing a condominium.

In the book Meisner shares his wisdom and wit accumulated from more than 35 years of practicing community association law. This handy guide is a must-read for anyone who has ever thought about developing, buying or selling a condo, or joining a condo association board.

America’s Master Handyman, Glenn Haege speaks of the book: “Everything you need to know about condo living… If you live in or are thinking of buying a condominium, you need this book.”

“Condominium living is not for everyone,” says Meisner. “There are numerous factors to consider before taking the plunge.”

The book is divided into two parts. Part One covers the factors to be considered when selecting, buying and selling a condominium. Part Two demystifies the management and operations of condominium associations and their boards.

Says Meisner: “It’s time to consider how condominium associations are supposed to operate – and how they actually do operate.”
