any1 staying in condo but regret

any1 staying in condo but regret?

say,
resident's car get clamped, as they dont allow additional x car.
typical clamp fee in range $100-$300. while illegal parking in public area commonly in $30-$120.
every year look at AGM report, the cash in management fund already in x millions & increasing , but still every 1-2 year raise management fund.
any1 en-bloc before can clarify if the developer will return the management fund back to owner or the developer take it.
dustbins got removed when management did not increase cleaning schedule.

while with all these negativity, u still decide not to bad mouth your condo, as u clearly know, it will affect selling price now or future.

If i am not wrong the balance in the sinking fund will be distributed evenly back to the residents.

a blog on tampines court en-bloc also shows: http://www.tampinescourt.net/2018/06...-accounts.html

Either buy a penthouse to get the biggest voting rights or ang ka with the other kakis to get things done that benefits you and your peers.
Tiagong certain condo management in the east is like little india.

i think the biggest "issue" is everyone's main door (not gate) is closed
we cant recognise any of our neighbour, except at our level lift lobby lol

once we took the lift at ground floor, both press the same level
after that then we started chatting

come to think of it, thankfully he is not doing delivery lol

Our condo will give us a few months where we don't need to pay management fees if there is too much in our sinking fund. I still like condo living vs HDB due to the added the security. The walls around the property keep out a lot of shady characters.

It's a gamble on whether u have a advantage with the management team.
Even commercial property management also the same pattern.

I regret not buying more condo during 2003 to 2005.
I regret not buying south bank two bedder when it’s at 5xxk,
I regret not buying the sail two bedder when it’s at 8xxk.
I regret I lack the guts to leverage before the CMs was imposed

Sigh, so many regrets in life. Lol

The 75% LTV was uncalled for especially for first time buyer like u, I really felt for u.

Here’s my take. If you can’t afford a landed continue with your HDB.
This is the most concise reply I used to stay condo and never felt bothered by all these stuffs. Park properly and won't get wheel clamped whaaaat. If buy within means then won't sleepless about those expected fees increase due to inflation..

Now stay HDB. Feels a lot less premium/satki - everything felt old, shared, badly maintained and even smell different d:
