,br>Approximately 92% of people use the Internet to assist in their home search, but the real test is actually going to visit the listings that you've picked out. There's usually a big difference between seeing photos online and actually visiting a place that looks appealing. 

Whether it's your first time looking at a condo for sale or your fifth, it's important to know what constitutes great luxury condos. To help you along in your real estate search, here are a few extremely important questions you need to be asking when it comes to condos. 

What Are the Biggest Complaints? 
One of the most important things to know about a condo for sale is what their problem management looks like. If you can talk to a few owners and see what it's like to have a certain issue and how long it takes to get it fixed, you should get a pretty good idea of how effective the management is there. 

How is the Management Team? 
Above all else, you want to make sure that the team running this luxury real estate organization is competent and compassionate about their residents. Beyond talking to the team members themselves, make sure you talk to some of the current owners. Bad management can make even the most luxurious condos seem like a terrible experience to have. 

What Are the Rules? 
Before you sign any papers or pack any boxes, make absolutely certain you know the rules of the condo community you're moving into. If there's a condo for sale and you have a dog, but dogs aren't allowed, that's something you need to know before anything is set in stone. 

Are There Any Other Fees? 
Just as you need to know all of the condo community rules before you sign any paperwork, you need to know what all of the fees are and if you've paid them. If you don't take the time to ask about this, you could be in for a world of trouble and hidden fees sucking money from your wallet. 

Looking at a condo for sale is one thing, but asking the right questions while you're there is absolutely key. Don't forget to ask!
