What Is A Condo?

Condominiums, frequently called condos, are sometimes conflated with apartments. On the spectrum of real estate property types, condos fall somewhere between houses and apartments. Condos are individual units owned outright by their residents rather than rented like an apartment. They’re generally adjacent to other units with shared walls, and other residents may be situated in upstairs or downstairs units. There may be shared amenities and common spaces just like an apartment. Outdoor maintenance is also typically handled by a maintenance service.

Benefits Of Buying A Condo

Buying a condo can be a great option with many benefits for buyers who don’t want to waste time on all the responsibilities associated with home ownership.

Affordability

As with any type of real estate, the cost of buying a condo can vary greatly depending on size, location, amenities, and other factors. Luxury condos can easily cost more than modest single-family homes, but condos are generally considerably cheaper than houses. When the market causes rent prices to increase, buying a condo can be even more affordable than renting an apartment or townhouse.

Sense Of Community

If building connections with neighbors and community members is a priority for you, condo living can be a great option. Close proximity to neighbors makes it easier to meet new people and form relationships. Some condos have committees that plan community events where you can socialize and mingle with other residents. 

Access To Amenities

When considering condo complexes, pay attention to common areas and shared amenities available for residents to enjoy, as these are different for all condo complexes. Compared to the cost to an individual homeowner to buy, install, and maintain amenities like in-ground pools or hot tubs, the minimal fees charged to condo owners to use shared amenities can be a big money saver. Look for amenities such as the following:

  • Pools
  • Hot tubs
  • Spas
  • Fitness Centers
  • Tennis Courts
  • Rooftop Terraces

Maintenance Services

A big attraction for many condo owners is the lower level of maintenance required compared to a single-family home. Condo owners are responsible for cleaning and maintaining the interiors of their condos, but the condo association handles exterior maintenance. Things like roof replacement and repairs, lawn maintenance and landscaping, and maintenance of shared amenities (like pools and fitness centers) are all done for you.

Security

Many condos have extra security measures, such as secured entrances, security cameras, and even security guards. Some condos have controlled access similar to what homeowners in gated communities enjoy. These features can help put your mind at ease, especially if you live alone.

Ability To Make Improvements

Since you’ll own your condo outright, there are few limits to what you can do with the interior of your condo. Condo owners have the freedom and flexibility to improve and upgrade their spaces. If you want to paint the walls, use nails to hang pictures, or upgrade to luxury appliances, you can go to town!

Considerations When Buying A Riverview Condo

While condo ownership has many benefits, there are a few potential downsides to consider before jumping into a condo purchase.

Association And Maintenance Fees

Along with the convenience of having building and grounds maintenance taken care of and having access to extra amenities, there are additional costs. Condo association fees are similar to homeowners association fees, and they help cover the costs of things you would otherwise have to pay for on your own if you lived in a single-family home, so it’s important to weigh the things you’ll gain against the costs of any fees.

Condo Association Rules And Regulations

Condos often have a list of rules and regulations for residents, typically strictly enforced. There may be restrictions on pets or additional pet fees and noise restrictions or regulations regarding guests and visitors. Be sure to read up on the rules and regulations of any condo complex you’re considering, and make sure you’re okay with following them.

Lack Of Privacy

For some people, the close proximity to neighbors in a condo complex is a positive feature. But if you’re looking for a high level of privacy, you may not get that from a condo. You’re more likely to bump into neighbors in shared spaces, and shared walls mean that you might sometimes hear your neighbors - and they may be able to hear you.

Limited Storage Space

The space available to you in a condo is similar to the space you would have in an apartment. Storage space for large items you don’t want in your living space is usually fairly limited. Some condos include a garage to keep your car and potentially some larger items. You probably will not be allowed to store other large items outside your condo in shared spaces.

Buying A Condo Vs. Single Family Home

Deciding where to live is a big decision. A condo's benefits over a home generally come down to lower cost, less maintenance, and access to amenities and conveniences. A single-family home may offer more space, freedom, and privacy, but these will cost you more time and money. A realtor can help you weigh the pros and cons of condos and single-family homes and decide the best choice for you and your family.
