The Book of Condos began long ago when I answered the hue and cry, pointing the way, the voice came, "Condo CanDo". I said, "I can't, they are too hard". The voice repeated, "Condo CanDo." I had to go. I had to find the way. Feeling the nudge, sensing the pull, I leapt and found myself smack in the middle of attached housing. Many of them. And rather unwanted. I grew into fascination, oh, I fell, hook line and sinker...and soon they became my passion. This is how I met CondoCanDo...
Falling in love with Condos- All of them!
Yes, some are newer and some older, some traditional,some classic, some contemporary, some with parking, some not, some with storage, some not, some with investors, some not, some approved financing, some not, some allow pets, some not...well, you get my drift,
They are all different in a zillion different ways.
How exciting is that?
When CondoCanDo® came into my life, there were no databases with all the condos and townhomes. The Internet had not spread across our land, digital photography was enormously expensive, many of the streets in condo complexes and within the complexes were not on the maps, and the type of heat could be determined by spotting the turquoise meters outside the buildings. I gathered information from Register of Deeds, reading the fishe files, going through the drawings, and other records to build a basis for my new found passion, Condominiums. Personally, it became a game for me as I drew 1000 maps with a CD from the city andArc software following the clusters of buildings I found on the tax maps. I love learning the nuances of each condominium
Three cheers! With gratitude!
