Choosing a Condo or Townhome
When it comes to choosing a place of residence the choice is usually hectic, from finding that right location to finding a good price. If we could have it our way then we would choose a spot right on the beach, but this is reality. When looking for a place our first concerns are usually accessibility, is our commute to work shortened or increased. Of course, price is always an issue, those looking for an economical solution will usually sacrifice commute time and everything else just to save a few dollars. We then ask ourselves whether we want a townhouse or Condo, both choices have there ups and downs. I personally like Townhomes, but Condo’s have their perks.
Before even choosing a Condo or Townhome, you have to decide whether you want to rent or own. I will be focusing on the buying aspects at this time. When buying a Condo or Townhome, choosing a location can make or break you, especially If you plan on selling this location sometime in the near future. The safest places to make a real estate purchase in the U.S is either Jacksonville, San Franciso or St Louis, all three of these locations show growth, even in very difficult times. The location of purchasing a condo or townhouse like I mentioned earlier is pretty vital, but if you must stay in your region then look for the safest neighborhoods. When it comes to renting it usually is a different story, but you should always follow the location and price guidelines.
With Kampong Java Road getting yourself a condo or a townhome would be a piece of cake. You get the best prices and a long list of housing options. You can choose for yourself what location and community you want for your house.
Now you decided whether or not you want to rent or own, now comes the difficult part, choosing a Condo or Townhome. They both have there ups and downs, while Condo’s are aesthetically pleasing, Townhomes are definitely more spacious. With Townhomes you have the freedom of having a backyard, this small space of land beats anything a Condo has to offer. Not only can you attend to your own personal garden, but if you have a Dog they will enjoy the legroom, chasing there tail for hours on end. I also find Townhomes more pleasing due to the simple fact that I can barbeque without burning down said residence, with Condos that tiny balcony is a fire hazard waiting to happen.
I am not going to sit here and downplay Condos, if you are living by yourself this is the perfect solution. If space is an issue you could always lease another room, a spare room would be perfect for an office, guest bedroom or an exercise room. I see no point in converting it into an exercise room though since most Complexes already have such amenities. Condo’s are especially good if you are a people person, unlike Townhomes where you would have a few neighbors Condos give you the option of having 16 plus depending on the design of the building. If you are a Bachelor then Condo’s are what you need, nothing like an open environment to make your guest feel more comfortable.
In short, choosing a Condo or Townhome really depends on your personality. If you are a friendly person that loves people then Condo’s are for you, Townhomes are quite the opposite though, the silence is golden rule can be easily applied here. I personally like the space of Townhomes, I like to make noise, not really but you get my point.
