Selling Condo Building to Developers to Turn into Apartments

I've been hearing a lot about developers purchasing entire small condo buildings and offering residents significant above market value offers to purchase the entire building to either turn into apartments or to demolish and build new condo buildings. Has anyone had any experience with this?

  • Thanks! My building is looking into it and from what I'm hearing, the offers that they are getting are almost too good to be true. Anyone else either have been through this process or know of someone who has?

  • You need 75% of owners to vote to sell. Easier in a small building but much harder in a large one. Ideal buildings would need a lot of work, have a lot renters, and facing special assessments- these are generally factors that depress value in buildings making it hard to sell individual units. offers are usually market rate for each unit- maybe a bit more - but there are no closing costs etc. (and by market rate I mean other units in the area. Not the building itself.)
