Hi guys,

I need some advice. I have a bachelor's degree in architecture from Canada and I have worked in jobs in Toronto and Montreal. Among them was building inspection and reserve funds.

I ended up leaving the jobs because I wasn't 100% into the buildings I worked on. I definitely want to do this for a living but only in So Cal area, because I genuinely care about buildings there. It would be my dream job. I know Toronto has a huge emerging condo market, maybe 2nd only to NYC, but I simply dislike the buildings there.

*Note: I do understand the lack of freeze-thaw effect and deterioration due to cold weather would limit deterioration greatly, as opposed to areas in North East for example. I don't see how this would reduce the need for this line of work though.*

Question is: are there a lot of condominiums/co-op type housing in So Cal, as opposed to single family homes? Where would they be? What geographical areas would produce most deterioration?

Thanks so much for your help
