Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between condos and apartments?
Many use the word apartment and condominium interchangeably to describe a high-rise building. However, there is a difference between the two and it stems from who has ownership of the property. A condominium (or condo for short) is a building that is owned by the individuals that purchased a unit. The property is run as a collective by a homeowners association (HOA). Once you purchase a condo you automatically belong to the HOA, and get a vote in how the building is run. Most condos in Atlanta include rental restrictions in their covenants and bylaws. It is typical that 20% of the building can be rented out at a time, for 6 to 12 month lease periods. Alternatively, an apartment is a building that is owned by one corporate entity, typically a real estate developer. Every unit at an apartment building is for rent, and the corporate entity collects the rental income. That corporation is also responsible for maintaining the building and its amenities.
What is a high rise vs. mid rise condo?
The difference between a high-rise and mid-rise condo is the height of the building. This distinction changes from city to city, where building heights vary. In Atlanta a high-rise condo is a building that is 11 floors or more, while a mid-rise condo is a building that is 10 floors or less.
What is a rental cap?
A rental cap is a restriction in the covenants and bylaws of a condominium that limits the number of renters allowed in the building. In Atlanta, it is typical to have a 20% rental cap in a condo building. This is done to incentivise owner-occupancy in a condo building, and offer additional mortgage options to potential condo owners. All FHA (Federal Housing Administration) and VA (Veterans Affairs) mortgage loans have rental cap requirements for condominiums. I recommend my clients review all HOA documentation and consult with the property manager when purchasing a condo with a rental cap.
What is a special assessment?
A special assessment is a mandatory one-time fee paid by homeowners to their condo association. A condominium can levy a special assessment when there is an expense that exceeds the funds raised by the monthly HOA dues and any reserves. Well run buildings plan in advance and budget for large expenses that are anticipated in the future such as a roof replacement, renovation project, or elevator maintenance. Even if a property has a robust reserve fund, the HOA might still need to levy a special assessment during an emergency situation, such as a natural disaster that causes unanticipated damage to the buildings common areas. As I mentioned previously, I recommend my clients review their HOA’s insurance policy and consult with the property manager when purchasing a condo.

People I’ve Worked With
“Trent is a consummate professional with deep understanding of the Midtown market, especially the high-rise condo properties. I’ve bought one property and sold one with Trent. Recommend him without reservation.“
Trent helped me both sell my condo and purchase a new one. I appreciated how much he listened to my needs and he personally customized the properties he sent me. He is attentive, goes above and beyond, and always has your side. I put complete trust in him and he did not let me down. He called me about the place I purchased before it was even listed. I would never have gotten it otherwise because it would not have stayed on the market. He always keeps his clients in mind and has an eye for finding the hidden gems! Trent made the stressful process very easy and handled every step of it with ease.
Trent is an awesome real estate agent running a top notch firm. I used Trent 9 years ago to buy my first home, 5 years ago to rent it and again this year to sell. He is very responsive and willing to help out even on little things to help maximize the deal. I sold my condo for $10K over what I was initially expecting thanks to his recommendations on pre-sale improvements and negotiation tactics. It is clear that he draws from his experience to make the best recommendations to his clients. Trent is very patient and dedicated, and I would recommend Trent to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their condo.
