Dh and I spent a couple of weeks visiting ds1 and DIL in their new home town. Dh retired last month, and the trip was a bit of a scouting mission to check out whether we could live there part time should grandkids enter the picture.
We did a few open houses and tours. We loved a condo on the top floor of a building with 36 units. We learned all about HOA fees and what they covered and underground parking (city gets lots of snow). We loved the walkability of the area where the kids live and proximity to trails and cafes and shopping.
This would be years in the future, but I like to gather info and data while we are still in the dreaming phase. So, what should we know about condo living and second homes?
