If you are in consideration of buying a condominium, but holding back due to a lack of information, it is always beneficial to know the facts before committing to what might be the biggest purchase in one’s life, for many. Read on to learn 10 interesting and useful facts about condos to aid you in making that crucial decision:

  1. Condo’s are available in a variety of layouts and sizes, and it is very much possible to find one that fully meets not only your needs but also your budget. Whether you are a single bachelor looking for to own that first bachelor pad, or a wealthy investor with several million dollars to splurge on a majestic bungalow in the sky, there will be always be one that suits your requirements.

  2. It is definitely possible to find a condo that is suitable for your needs, whether it is for full fledged family style living or you are a just married couple with privacy as your ultimate goal. Whether your are looking for a single bedroom or a family home with multiple bedrooms, a unit located right in the heart of the city or nestled away from the urban jungle, there will always be that suits you in the market with the ultimate choice being yours to make.

  3. If you have green fingers, worry not if the condominium does not have a yard, garden or balcony. You can still grow flowers, plants or vegetables indoors so long as light is available through a window. However, many condominiums usually have a balcony, and higher end ones today even boast of having a ‘sky garden’.

  4. Having a condo could also mean having the best view of the city, considering the high-rise nature of most condominiums. It also means that you do not have to travel all the way to the most crowded of area to witness fireworks presentation during festivities, as there are many with views overlooking the city center and all the entertainment can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. The views at night can be especially captivating, something which those in landed properties will most probably not have the luxury of.

  5. Owning an automobile might not be a necessity as there are many condos are located in close proximity to the public transportation such as the neighbourhood LRT station. On top of that, buses in the vicinity would most probably pass by the condominium at designated times giving easy access to public transportation. As a last resort, you could always take a bike or walk since many condos today are built with ample amenities just a stone’s throw away.

  6. Although some condominiums are specifically designated for a certain segment of society such as senior citizens, most are open to anyone and the experience of living in one could make you feel like the entire city is living on your block, having people from a multitude of characters and professions as your next door neighbours.

  7. You have to pay a monthly maintenance fee, but the benefit is that somebody else is now in charge of performing the maintenance tasks normally involved in owning a home. While your friends are busy mowing the lawn, raking leaves and trimming the garden you will have more time on hand to be well spent with your family or on your hobbies.

  8. A condo that is strategically located, whether near a major business hub, urban area, or educational community can command attractive rental returns. Therefore, a condo that is purchased after careful consideration and sound judgment can turn into a great investment when you decide to move on to a bigger place.

  9. Most condominiums are well equipped with facilities such as swimming pools, sauna rooms, gymnasiums, badminton courts and other amenities which could save you traveling time and membership fees required to join the clubhouse or fitness center a half an hour’s drive away. The facilities usually available in a condominium will make you feel as if you are living in a miniature resort which is just an elevator away.

  10. Just like all homes, condominiums are built with a variety of designs. Even in a single development, there will normally be several layout options to choose from. You can therefore take your time to choose the layout that suits you best and customize the unit to fit your exact needs.

There are definite pros and cons in any and every purchase, but there is certainly much to cheer about living in a condo, considering that it can not only be comfortable and suited to your needs, but also works out to be a sensible long term investment.
