By nature, Florida is an attractive place for people to purchase/rent properties including condominiums, apartments, and homes where a community association is present.  This opens up many market opportunities for licensed CAM’s to generate substantial income.

The Board of Directors of a community association has the obligation to maintain, manage, and operate the community to serve its residents.  Often, though not required by law, the Board of Directors hires a CAM, who must be licensed by the state, to carry out these tasks.

* Many Real Estate licensees, appraisers and GC’s are getting their CAM license to generate additional income and to better understand the requirements of the large and complex community association market.
