This is for Rana. Thank you for your thoughts and that asset enhancement fee is negotiable especially in a Buyer’s market where the Seller might want to offer additional incentives, as you stated.
Different market conditions always play into negotiations. However that upfront fee is for the Buyer to enjoy all the amenities SCA has to offer while living in our community so I think of it as benefitting the Buyer. And Seller probably paid that fee upfront when purchasing. But yes — negotiable!
