Perhaps you’re a young person or couple who has been renting for years, but you want to start building equity. However, you’re priced out of the single-family home market. Plus, owning a house just seems too overwhelming with all the upkeep. Or maybe you’re an empty-nester wandering around a large house and you’re ready to right-size your life. And the idea of a vacation home now tops your bucket list.
No matter your life-stage, if you want a low-maintenance home where you can build equity while enjoying luxury features like resort pools and onsite fitness centers, a condo is for you.
If you’re a first-time homebuyer, you don’t have the advantage of using the sale of a previous property to put toward the purchase of a new home. Plus, rising rents have probably eaten into your ability to save for a down payment. As a result, opting for a condo, often with a lower required down payment, can make homeownership more affordable.
The cost to maintain a condo is almost always lower than the cost to maintain a large single-family home. After all, in a condo you’re not paying for those high-ticket items like a new roof, or weekly yard maintenance. While these costs do come out of the HOA fees, you are sharing that cost with a number of condo-homeowners. Best of all, you’re not responsible for mowing the lawn or exterior upkeep, leaving more free time to enjoy your life.
One reason condos appeal to a diverse group of homebuyers is that the cost is typically lower than that of a single-family home. Of course, prices do vary, especially according to location and the level of luxury, but generally, condos are more affordable than single-family homes.
While condos make it easy for residents to lock and leave without worry, amenities can make day-to-day life feel like a vacation. Condo ownership can come with perks that could cost a small fortune to include in a single-family home. A perfect example of an amenity-rich environment is Juhl in downtown Las Vegas.
