If you plan on buying a home, then you should know that there are plenty of options available. Variety is one aspect the is definitely not lacking in.  One of the options you have is . This is a great alternative if you want your own place, but can’t quite afford or simply aren’t interested in .

So, what exactly is a condo?

A condominium is usually defined as a large property complex divided and sold in individual units. What this mean is that you’ll own some parts privately (your residence), but also share ownership with all of the condo’s residents when it comes to certain common areas

Now that we got that out of the way, let’s take a look at some of  the top reasons for buying a condo

1Price

There are plenty of reason why buying a condo might be a better fit compared to buying an apartment or a house, and money is definitely one of them.

Condo prices tend to appreciate at a slower rate than single-family accommodations. This means a condo is a great, affordable alternative on markets where prices are constantly going up.

2Amenities

Owning a condo means you’ll have access to certain desirable amenities that you couldn’t afford otherwise. I’m talking about swimming pools, fitness facilities and even golf courses. That doesn’t sound too bad, does it?

3Great location at a price you can afford

How would you like to own a lakefront condo and wake up every morning to an amazing view?  Well, it’s definitely a dream that can come true for you. And the most important part is that you don’t have to empty your savings account to achieve it.

4Community

If you’re a sociable, open-minded person always looking to make new friends, then buying a condo could be the best choice for you.

By sharing certain living spaces and amenities with other residents, you’ll be more likely to build strong, lasting friendships with your neighbors.

5Security

Living in a condo tends to provide extra security. Besides the usual security features most have such as locked front entrances, your neighbors will turn out to be the most efficient alert system. So if anybody suspicious is sniffing around, you can be sure that someone will notice.

6Shared Maintenance Costs

One of the perks of shared ownership is the fact that you’ll be splitting  the maintenance bill with the other owners.

Also, you’ll be happy to know you won’t be directly responsible for performing maintenance in the building, common areas or grounds. This gives you more free time to enjoy that amazing lake view I mentioned before.

Condos are great…for the right person. If you’re a busy professional, or love to travel and dont want to do yardwork, a condo could be the right home for you.

I think that this article makes it clear as to the difference of living in a house and a condo. I am from the UK so I have no idea how the real estate market works and this give me clear direction as to how the whole thing works.

My husband will retire in a few years so for us, the house that we are in now will be too big. The kids would have left the nest by that time. Getting a condo, flat, apartment or anything smaller is definitely an option for us. No stairs to think of, smaller area to clean and maintain are just a few of the advantages.
