What I'd recomend is that you ask around to see if anyone you know can recomend a good mortgage broker they have personally used in the past. As co-workers, family, friends - anyone you trust who owns a house. Once you get a name, meet with the broker and see if you like them. Talk to them about what you intend to do, but don't sign anything in that meeting. Take an application home with you, but only use this meeting as an opportunity to get to know the broker a little.

If you are buying a brand-new condo, be wary of any builder or developer who refuses to allow a professional inspection.

Maybe the builder is concealing defects that would be obvious to an expert inspector. Or perhaps the city building inspector missed a serious construction mistake. Whether you are buying a new or resale condo, including a professional inspection contingency is money well spent.

Think about how long you're going to stay in one place. Buying a condo is no different than buying a single-family home--you need to live there at least a couple of years to recoup closing costs, assuming the property will appreciate.

All condo buyers would agree that location is the most important thing to consider even if you want to buy a single-family home, town home, or starter home. Nearness to school, workplace, hospital and other places you frequently go to determines the location of your future condo home.

Check the renters/owners ratio and check foreclosures and short sales in the community. Also, check if the community makes you pay extra often for other projects or to make up for the people who do not pay their maintenance.
