Is condo living right for you?
While this might seem like a simple question to answer, it’s helpful to have the important factors laid out in front of you.
Typically condos are smaller in both living and storage space, which means that there’s less to clean and maintain, but it can also be limiting to certain lifestyles. (Bonus: It keeps you from saving things that aren’t worth saving!)
Depending on the style of condo you buy, your neighbors will either be next to you, above you, below you, or all of the above! So if you’re someone who has a tough time getting along with others, lives a noisy lifestyle, or is looking for a great deal of privacy, then condo living may not be for you. On the other hand, you could make some great friends and there is alway someone else around to look out for anything going amiss.
Much like living space, the majority of condos don’t offer much in the way of a yard. This is a nice plus from a low-maintenance / zero yard work perspective.
The above points are great to get you thinking about the condo lifestyle. Also, we recommend you take the time to jot down what is important to you in your day to day living. This will go along way to helping you make the decision that’s right for you.
