Some Of The Pros And Cons Of Condo Living

Daytona Beach Condos

You might see a luxurious condo building right on the beach and think about giving up your present home, but is it the right move for you? Before you make the commitment, think about the pros and cons of condo living.

The Pros of Condo Living

  • Maintenance is Included: The main reason most people buy a condo is the carefree lifestyle with maintenance included. When you own a condo, the maintenance workers keep up with the landscaping, exterior painting and repairs, and they are on hand for other maintenance and repair work. There is often a property manager onsite. That makes condo ownership ideal for people who love to travel, seniors and those who are not into household chores.
  • Onsite Amenities: If you want amenities like a pool and a place to work out but you can’t seem to justify spending the money, a condo typically provides those benefits amenities. Often there is a resident’s lounge, or a clubroom designed for community activities and parties as well. Condos can provide designated onsite parking that is covered and secured.
  • Lower Prices: Condos can offer more affordable options than other types of housing. That’s why people buying a first home choose a condo as a stepping stone to a larger home. Lower prices are also appealing to people who no longer want a large investment in real estate, like retirees.
  • Less to Care For:  While some high-end condo apartments on the market provide as much space as a single-family home, many units are more compact. That makes condo living appealing to empty nesters who are downsizing, young people just starting out and retirees. Real estate investors and people looking for a second vacation home also appreciate carefree condos.
  • Security: Most condo buildings offer security features like gated entries, locked building access and secured parking. Some higher end condo complexes have a concierge or doorman onsite for added security.

Consider the Cons Of Condo Living

Before you jump into condo ownership, consider the cons that may make a difference in your decision.

  • HOA Fees: When you calculate how much condo ownership will cost you monthly, figure in Homeowners Association fees (HOA) fees. The perks listed above, like the pool, security and maintenance, are a shared cost to the community paid through the HOA.
  • Living by the Rules: For people who come from a private single-family house or townhome, living by condo rules can be an adjustment. Before you hang something on your door, install a solar panel or rent out your condo, check the condo rules.
  • A Lot of Togetherness: Some people love being near others for security and friendship, and others are more private. Remember that with condo living you will see your neighbors.
