SHOULD I CHOOSE A CONDO OR A HOUSE?

Condos and houses each have their own unique benefits and drawbacks. Which to choose depends on your preferences, lifestyle, and future plans. Here is a look at what to consider.

CONDOS

Condos are typically less expensive than houses, and all exterior repairs and maintenance are provided. They are smaller and more densely packed than houses, which often means they can be found in downtowns and other highly desirable areas. Condo neighborhoods tend to be filled with shared amenities, from swimming pools to golf courses, and neighbors tend to congregate at these facilities, making it easier to make friends.

HOUSES

Owning a house also means owning the land it is on. In exchange for maintaining your own property, you can build a fence, install a pool, design a garden, and enjoy outdoor privacy. Depending on your homeowner’s association rules, you can also customize the exterior of the house through painting and decorations. You can also expand your living space by adding onto the house, building a guest house, or simply installing a deck. It is up to you who you allow to live in your house, and whether you want to run a business out of it (depending on zoning restrictions). Houses also tend to sell more easily than condos.
