First Time Homebuyers Turning to Condo Living

You may have noticed that more and more condominium communities have been sprouting around you. Is it just the decreasing availability of land that has caused this or could there be more to it?

Perhaps a condominium home is what the modern homebuyer is looking for these days. There are pros and cons to buying a landed property and the same goes for condominiums. Let us first take a look at how we can benefit from this surge of condo living.


Own A Home Now Rather Than Later


The most obvious reason is because owning a home becomes possible a lot sooner when prices are lower for a condominium unit compared to a landed property.


Less Mess, Less Stress


The upkeep of the community grounds is no longer a burden of yours. There are no yards for you to mow, leaves to rake or broken features to fix. You can sit back knowing your environment will be all taken care of by the condominium management. Not to mention, a smaller space means a smaller cleaning checklist.

VIP Treatment


Unless you are a Very Important Person (VIP), chances are you do not have a concierge front office or security at your service at home. With condo-living comes the luxury of having at-home staff to report issues to and collect packages, along with other attendant services.


Safety First, Kids


How often do you see children playing in the streets of a landed neighbourhood as they did way back when a child not wearing a helmet while riding a bike was not frowned upon? That’s not to say we should no longer take safety precautions but it is a fact that a closed-off community with on-hand security available is much safer than the unguarded open grounds of a house. You can sleep peacefully at night knowing no one is going to simply walk into your home grounds.

Amenities Galore


With all the amenities that most condominiums offer these days, residents may save on gym and clubhouse memberships. Instead of battling the will to drive to a park for a walk, a condo lifestyle often offers the option to simply walk out of your unit and go for a jog or a swim. You can host birthday parties by the pool, basketball games with your colleagues and festive bbq parties with your friends and loved ones without leaving your home.


At the end of the day, you will make a decision based on what works best for you and where you are in life but if the opportunity to own a home presents itself at the right time, can you really go wrong whether it be a house or condominium?
