What to Expect From Condo Living: All You Need to Know

March 12th, 2021

Not too long ago, condos were considered to be just “starter” homes. People would rent or buy condominiums and leave as soon as they accumulated enough money to buy a home in a suburban area. Nowadays, modern lifestyle and fast-pace living have made condos a trendy option, suitable for couples, as well as for families and retirees.

More and more homeowners are downsizing and moving their families to a more central location. What’s more, even entrepreneurs and freelancers are looking for condos up for sale in the Marina District or anywhere else across San Diego that offers a modern approach to living and working. So, if you’ve been thinking about buying a condo yourself, learn more about what to expect.

What to know about living in a condo?

There are many things to consider when deciding whether condo living is the most viable option for you. Keep in mind these benefits of living in a condo setting as opposed to the traditional suburban home.

1. A great investment

You may be in the market for a new property but on the fence about your best option. Buying a condo as an investment offers good value for your money. If you’ve got a mortgage to pay off, renting it out to a lessee is always a great idea. Not only are condos fairly easy to rent out, but the rent itself can also pay off your condo mortgage. Most importantly, condos are properties that tend to keep their value and even double it over time.

2. An urban setting

Condos are usually designed on premium locations, with a developed and vibrant city life built around them. The main feature of a condo is that it provides something for everyone. It’s quiet and private but lively at the same time.
Whatever your preference, if you’re the type leaning towards a modern and entertainment-filled lifestyle – bars, shopping malls, and theatres are usually around the corner. And as for families, condominiums offer a variety of family-oriented activities.

3. Countless amenities

Most condo buildings come with a set of useful amenities for modern-day living. Want to take a dip in the pool during a hot summer day or hit the gym to blow off steam after a hard day’s work? You can find it all in your own “backyard”. For families with young children, condo developers strategically design outdoor family play areas and parks where the kids can play and interact in a safe environment.

4. Maintenance & security

One of the many perks of being a condo owner is that most general maintenance is taken care of and covered by condo fees. In some cases, this applies even to different repairs in your condo but generally excludes condo renovations you wish to undertake. 

The other significant advantage to take into account is the security that condo living offers. You’ll forget all about alarms and expensive security systems. Condos have security guards that are on duty 24/7, with secured entry and exit points.
