Many people are discovering living in a condo has several benefits compared to living in a traditional single-family home. Many people dream of owning their own home, while other people do not want the responsibilities that go with traditional home ownership. Yet others find they no longer need their traditional home since their children have long moved out and want to downsize into something more comfortable. Condos also make great starter homes for first-time buyers and starting a family with your first child.
One of the main benefits gained is the shared community amenities everyone gets to enjoy. These could include an onsite fitness centre, swimming pool, outdoor BBQ cookout area, walking trails, onsite security, landscaping services, exterior building maintenance and repair services, and more. Keep in mind the amenities offered at each community can and do vary.
Another benefit people enjoy is being able to remodel the interiors of their home as they see fit with help from Toronto condo renovation company, Turn-Key Projects. You are free to upgrade and remodel your bathrooms, kitchen, living room, and bedrooms in a wide array of colour palettes and designs. Best of all, we have taken the guesswork out of selecting the right colours and provide you with a template to get started. Convenience to nearby shopping, dining, entertainment, parks, and public transport is another reason people enjoy owning a condo over a traditional home. If they want to go out for a meal, catch a movie, see a concert or sporting event, oftentimes these are all located close to their home, within a short walking or biking distance or a quick public transport ride.
While condos do have their advantages, condo living is not for everyone. It is important to remember there are specific rules and regulations you must follow to live within a condo community. In addition, depending on where the community is located, your home could be in a sky rise building in downtown Toronto or in a smaller building with six to eight units. As such, you might have neighbours above or below your home, as well as on one or both sides of your home.
If you are currently shopping for a condo, take the time to ask questions and find out what rules and regulations the community has, what amenities it offers, and other details before you sign the purchase agreement. Even though you are free to renovate the interior of your home to your liking, there can be certain restrictions on the extent of work you can do.
As such, it is highly recommended to always review your condo owner association rules and regulations, and when in doubt check with your condo board.
