The Disclosure Mine Field

educational podcast Tune in to All Things Real Estate and join WestGate Properties owner Tom Simon for a discussion on HOA and Condo Association Disclosures. Long time contributor Lynn Krupnik will be with Tom for the full hour as they discuss the “disclosure” minefield and the things that any buyer should look for when purchasing a condominium or home in an HOA.

In the 1st hour of the show, join Rey and his guest co-host, Tom Simon–Professional Community Association Manager and owner of homeowner association management company, Westgate Properties, LLC–as they use the upcoming holiday of Halloween to inspire their discussion on a variety of real estate and community issues impacting homeowners, buyers, sellers, and renters.

As we all know, Halloween is a holiday celebrated each year on October 31st.
The tradition originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1st as a time to honor all saints. Soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, festive gatherings, donning costumes, and eating treats.

Given that the holiday is important to many homeowner, buyer, seller, and renter families, Sunday’s ATRE show will give some focus to planning for the event in a safe and secure fashion, as we continue to deal with coronavirus. Rey and Tom will also apply the theme of the holiday to share suggestions on how consumers, and real estate professionals, can avoid “scary” occurrences that can occur in home buying, or selling activities, as well as in neglected home maintenance.
