We're considering purchasing a condo; however, the place seems a bit dated. Any ideas on the amount of crime in the area? Financial solvency of Board of Directors? Some of the place seems a bit dated, but also seemed ok in terms of safety and neighborhood activities.

Any insights from people that live there or realtors that might recommend/not recommend buying there?

I can comment at least on the safety of the area. Richmond Highway/Route 1 gets a bad rap for crime although that affects the low-rise apartments further south much more than the mostly gated high-rises near Montebello. I wouldn't necessarily go for a 9pm jog but there aren't exactly barbarians at the gate, either.
