Choosing where to live is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in your life. If you are drawn to the idea of condo living as opposed to staying in your single-family home, consider a few reasons why making a move to a condo will may make your life easier.
Downsize is the Right Size
You’ve read about Marie Kondo’s views on the magic of tidying up your life and now believe that your home is too big to bring you joy. Downsizing from a house to a condo can be your next step in fulfilling this need to simplify. There are a variety of condo floor plans available to help you find the right size and layout. Or be involved from the start in choosing finishes and features when selecting a new-build condo option. If you’re ready for less is more, a condo could be the perfect fit.
Chores No More
Condominium living provides a lifestyle free of outdoor chores. The association will organize crews to rake leaves and mow the grass, weed and mulch your colorful landscape or shovel the heavy snow on your driveway and walkways. This gives you more time to do more of your favorite things. Any repairs that need to be attended to, like prepping your furnace for winter or fixing a leaky faucet in the kitchen, will also be taken care of by the association.
Neighbors and Friends
Living in a condominium complex means close proximity to your neighbors, allowing extra opportunities to develop friendships. The association typically holds monthly meetings which provide a chance to become familiar with neighbors and where they live in your community. This formal setting makes for easy introductions for those either new to condo living or interested in expanding their friendship circle. While you still may choose a more private lifestyle, you’ll have more chances to get to know more people living closely to your neighbors.
