Should I Buy a Condo or a Single Family Home?
Looking for a place to call your own but without some of the traditional hassles of homeownership – like yard work? Then you may want to consider purchasing a condominium.
Condos are popular for a number of reasons including size, location, shared amenities and limited maintenance responsibilities. They’re the perfect transition between hassle-free renting and a single-family home with a yard.
How do you know if the condo lifestyle is right for you? Here are a few questions to ask yourself:
- Do you want to own a home, but prefer to skip the snow removal, leaf blowing and other yard work?
- Do you want access to extra amenities, like a fitness center, swimming pool and clubhouse?
- Are you comfortable paying a homeowner’s association fee (which can typically cost $100-$400 per month) for someone else to manage the property?
- Are you willing to submit to the rules and regulations for your community, like no swimming after 10:00 p.m.?
