Condos & Their Resale Value: 4 Factors to Consider

April 15th, 2021

Condos were once thought to be homes that singles or young couples bought as their first investments. Nowadays, the market has broadened to include homeowners, entrepreneurs, families, seniors, and investors who recognize the benefits and value condo living has to offer. do-condos-have-resale-value-scaled

Condos provide great flexibility when you decide that the condominium lifestyle is the right choice for you. You can easily renovate the condo to your taste and present a low-maintenance everyday routine that saves you time and energy. With all the added amenities that go along with it, such as the swimming pool, playground, and gym, it’s easy to see why luxury condos in San Diego are a popular choice for modern-day living.

Do condos have resale value?

When buyers opt for a condo purchase, scarcely do they think of it as an investment, one that could potentially pay off. Rarely do they do the research, believing single-family homes outsell condos on the real estate market and are therefore a bad investment. In fact, according to studies, condos regularly outperform stand-alone houses. There are four attributes that bring about a condo’s high resale value.

1. Always in demand

A contemporary way of living brings all types of buyers with it. From young professionals and entrepreneurs who value undemanding and straightforward living conditions to families looking to downsize in search of a more central-based home, there is always a high demand for the perks condos bring to the table.

2. Convenient and low-maintenance lifestyle

Fast-paced life leaves little room for hobbies, family, and relaxation. Buyers today realize that when they purchase a condo, they are securing all the qualities of condominium living and saying goodbye to such things as landscaping, exterior maintenance, and other similar responsibilities. They are getting their free time, something that today is a valuable commodity.

3. Prime locations and high quality

One of the most important aspects of living in a condo is that they’re always situated in great locations. With entertainment, shops, and parks, condos offer a vibrant take on modern lifestyle, with something for all generations of buyers.

The way condos are built today has come a long way. Premium quality materials, alongside contemporary design and high-tech security, create extra appeal in terms of the condo’s market resale value.

4. Condo Amenities

One of the primary reasons buyers opt for condos is the allure of the amenities on offer. Want to go for a quick swim before going to work or hit the gym for an anti-stress session? Leave the kids in the community playground while you take your clothes to the condo laundry room. There are many options that provide you with a free-flowing, accessible, and convenient approach to everyday life.

The primary way to increase your condo’s resale value is to improve the existing condo’s interior. Keep in mind that some renovations may be subject to approval from your community HOA. This may limit your remodeling ideas to a degree but is still manageable. With upgrades to the kitchen and bathroom, some new appliances, with the addition of hardwood floors, can all significantly enhance the value of your condo.

Your condo location will also play a significant role in your resale value. When purchasing a condo, take time for due diligence of the real estate market and choose an area with a projected market value growth.
