Thinking about purchasing a home or an investment property? You have a lot of choices and decisions:
What town do you want to live in? What kind of ambiance feels “like home” to you or is important for other reasons?
How do you envision your surroundings? Do you want convenience? Privacy? Picturesque setting? Close neighbors? Everything has its advantages and it just depends on what feels “right” to you.
Do you want the enjoyment of a pool, and maybe not the upkeep? You may want to consider a neighborhood association OR condominium association that features a community pool.
Houses come in a wide variety of styles, as you are aware. There are some regional variations and differences in what is common or popular in different parts of the country. Some of these are based on climate: how easy of difficult is a home to cool (important in the South) or heat (…obviously important in the North). Light is important in a home, and you’ll want to findÂ the right balance of windows, skylights, sliders or other glass doors.
Condo or Single Family – How to Decide? Why choose a condo vs a single family home, or vice versa?
Convenience is often the first thing buyers think of when choosing a condo. Perhaps you have an active life and are away from home for extended periods. Having an association that takes care of the exterior maintenance of your property can be helpful in this scenario. Or you may feel intimidated at the idea of keeping up with home maintenance. A condo minimizes the need for this knowledge, though it does not completely eliminate it. If you enjoy a community of close neighbors, condominium living is a nice fit.
