Owner Occupiers Should Check the Entire Condo Building Tax Roll Before They Buy

Ian Watt video blogs about how your realtor should check the entire tax roll for the strata condo you are buying in before you remove your subjects just to be sure if the owners are going to share the same interest as you, the owner occupiers. If you want to voice your opinion or if you don't care for Ian's comments please email your feedback to ianwatt@ianwatt.ca and visit http://www.ianwatt.ca/RealEstateVideos for all the Ian Watt Real Estate Video Blogs.

Ian Watt: Hi Good Afternoon, its Ian Watt in Downtown Vancouver. I always think it's important when you're going to buy a condo in one of this buildings in Downtown Vancouver is go through the tax roll first. Then you'll have a better idea of who is part of the strata, who makes up the strata. If you go through that and you can see how many overseas investors there are and how many owner occupiers there are. Of course that doesn't exactly tell you the exact percentage but if you notice that there 80 of 80% of the people are overseas. Perhaps they have different interest than you being an owner occupier. You might wanna check that out it's free to look out in your realtor can check it out for you. But if that doesn't work out perhaps you can just email me. My name is Ian Watt. You could always email me at ianwatt@ianwatt.ca. Thank you very much and have a great day!
