Condo or House, Which is Right For You?


Buying a Home is one of the most important decisions in someone’s lifetime and should be treated as such. Whether it’s your first house or you’re looking for a new place to call home, you’ll have to ask yourself some questions in order to find a house that meets your needs.

One of the first questions you’ll want to ask yourself is what type of home will work best for you and talk to your Orlando Realtor about it.

You basically have two options to choose from, either a single-family house or a condo. There are pros and cons for each type of home and only you can determine which will which one will be right for you.

Condos for instance, are ideal for people wanting to live near the city or right in the heart of Downtown Orlando. Popular among younger couples with no children, Downtown Orlando offers the perfect setting for people who enjoy going to restaurants, theater as well as outdoor public events.

Another major reason people are attracted to condo living is they don’t have to maintain the property. Your monthly condo association fee covers the outside maintenance of your home as well as the roof and even the central AC depending on the association rules.

Living in a single-family home is a more popular choice among families with children. There’s nothing quite like relaxing in the privacy of your own of your home. It provides the perfect setting for raising kids and you can’t hear your neighbors through the walls. Also, having a backyard is priceless for people who enjoy gardening or landscaping.

The following considerations may help you determine the best choice for you

  • The Location– What area do you want to live in? Find out if you have the option of choosing a condo or a single-family home.
  • Do You Like Your Privacy?– Or do you like having a few neighbors around?
  • Maintenance– Do you like getting your hands dirty or would you rather have someone else do everything for you?
