Park It A Look into Condo Parking Policies and Rules

 There’s nothing worse than circling the block over and over in search of a parking  space. When condo owners have a spot to call their own, it’s a luxury that can be considered priceless—especially in the harsh New England winters, when snowplows need to come in,  limiting overnight parking in many areas.  

 That’s why New England condominiums that offer their own parking lots are much more  in demand than those that don’t.  

 “It’s a big deal because the demand for parking has increased over the years,” says Ronald Brown, CMCA, president of R Brown Partners, a management firm in  Boston. “Real estate brokers always want more parking and it is a big draw for those  looking for a new home.”  

 In the majority of condominium communities, residents are restricted to one or  two designated or deeded parking spaces per unit, with extra spaces for  visitors in the common property.  

 “Most sites have sufficient parking,” says David Abel, CMCA, senior manager at First Realty Management in Boston. “The more urban sites seem to be in equilibrium, so even if there are not enough  spaces, the demand has been met otherwise.”
