• Is A Condo Right For You?
The prices of condos are going up in some areas of San Jose, but one thing is for sure, condos are here to stay! Condo living looks like the way of the future and there are several reasons for their popularity. One is obviously a reflection on our society - many of us just feel safer living in a close community that offers protection of some sort. There is also the fact that most condo owners live up higher than ground level and it is known that more burglaries happen in first floor condos. A higher proportion of condos are also being built as gated communities these days, so condos offer much more security than a single family dwelling. Many condos also offer 24 hour security patrols or underground parking.
Security is a big factor especially for older people who may feel frail. With the baby boomers reaching retirement age, the largest population of pensioners will be looking for secure housing. People prefer condos because often they want to do fewer chores and have more peace. Another reason why a condo is so appealing is most condo maintenance is looked after by the management. Being able to walk though lawns that are fed, watered and cut by someone else has its appeal, as does swimming in a pool that is always at the perfect Ph balance!
Condos always have 'house rules'. They are there to protect rather than to hinder, but they are all individually designed. Rules can be vastly different from one condo unit to another. It would be extremely important to check the rules before you make your decision to buy. Real gardening buffs can search out a condo block that has large balconies and grow vegetables in pots! Make sure that you are able to grow vegetation on your balconies, this 'permission' thing may be an unfamiliar idea for those who are moving from single family dwellings. If you find a condo with the type of rules that would fit into normal lifestyle, there will be no conflict if you are planning a change!
