Single Family Home Vs. Condominium: What’s Better?

Posted in Property, Real Estate on 08.08.09

Single Family HomeNothing in the world is as important as your first home – owning your own place is something to be proud of and I know that when I first got my home, it was so exciting!  Now the question on every first time home buyer’s mind seems to be whether they should get a single family home or a condo.  Condos – while fantastic, have some disadvantages and homes have some advantages – it is all about what you need.

One of the first things that you need to do is make sure that you take a look at the costs.  One thing that a condo has over a home is that it is usually a lot cheaper than purchasing a house – simply because you are in a building just like an apartment.  However – if you do not want to be stacked up like you are in an apartment, a home might be a better idea.

Another thing that you need to consider is going to be location and convenience – a home is very convenient most of the time as you can do anything you want to is, while a condo, you do not ever truly own it.
