Buyers from many walks of life are discovering the advantages of condo and townhome living.
Whether you’re a first-time buyer looking for an affordable way to own a home, a busy professional with little time to devote to home maintenance, or an empty-nester who’s “right-sizing,” a condo or townhome may be a good choice for you.
A condo or townhome is very low maintenance; landscaping and maintenance of the exterior structure are typically handled by the homeowners’ association (HOA). This is attractive if you’re not “handy” or if you have a busy lifestyle that doesn’t leave much time for home maintenance.
Many communities offer amenities such as pools, tennis courts, clubhouses, and walking trails, which may not be available with many detached homes.
Newer construction offers greatly improved sound barriers and fire walls.
The proximity of neighbors may give owners a greater sense of security.
HOA dues increase your monthly outgoings and can rise in the future as maintenance and repair costs go up. Increases or decreases in HOA fees usually must be approved by the HOA, but check the community bylaws before making an offer to purchase a condo or townhome.
HOA covenants and by-laws may restrict the way you can use or improve your property. Again, be sure to read them carefully before making an offer.
Available parking for guests may be limited.
Typically, there is less storage space than in a detached home.
Before purchasing any home, consider the potential for resale. To determine if the property you’re considering is a good investment, ask about the condo/townhome market in your area.

"I have worked with several realtors but none with the passion and drive that Adriana Klink has. Adriana made me feel comfortable and excited about my listing. She thought out of the box and came up with refreshing ideas other relators had not thought of to get my house more exposure. Adriana went above and beyond to become my home's advocate. She did not stop when meeting opposition from the HOA, it only made her more persistent.
Adriana eagerly looked for opportunities to introduce my home to potential clients whenever she could. Rather than sending an email and hoping it would lead to something, Adriana traveled to communities near and far to create relationships with other agencies.
Adriana kept me well informed throughout the time as my agent. Copies of documents I signed were also sent for my records and she followed up on any leads or visit to receive feedback.
I would recommend Adriana to anyone looking for a Realtor that will go above and beyond! She will not only represent your home, she will make you feel informed, comfortable and confident!
