  • It comes with a range of amenities: If you like having handy amenities, such as a common lounge area, fitness center, outdoor barbecue area, and many more, within easy reach, condos are the thing for you. This is also why more and more young parents choose to live in condos.

Generally speaking, purchasing is a better course of action if you see yourself staying in your new home for at least 10 years. Although you may already be able to afford your condo, taking out a small loan is worth considering as it will give you a greater financial leeway further down the line.
