Benefits of Condo Living

Benefits Of Condo Living

Although many people foresee buying a single-family house when considering their next home purchase, a condominium could make more sense depending on your situation. With people living busier lives, condos are an attractive choice because of their convenience and low-maintenance lifestyle. The following is a few of the overlooked benefits to condo living:

Maintenance

With a condo, maintenance is minimal because someone else handles the outside work. One of the biggest draws of condo ownership is freedom from the maintenance that you might not have the time, desire or ability to tackle — like shoveling snow, mowing the lawn or repairs to the outside of the building. Your monthly condo fees cover these services. Home maintenance is just easier in a condo.

Location

Pacific Landing’s village community has planned retail space for a coffee shop, pub, grocery store and much more, so all necessities will be within walking distance. Another benefit to Pacific Landing’s location is the natural amenities that come with the property. You can enjoy a lovely walk through the forest leading to Royal Roads University, go bird watching in the Esquimalt Lagoon Migratory Bird Sanctuary, or kayaking from the community waterfront.

Safety / Security

Condos provide the safety and security of community. It is much easier to have the neighbors in your building look out for any strangers who may be trying to access your unit than if you live in a house.  Secure entry doors to the building and parkade add an extra layer of security. This also helps you leave your worries behind if you want to “lock and leave” to travel. No need to ask family members to come and collect your mail or turn the lights on in your home to make it look like someone is there guarding the premises.

Strengthening Social Connections

Many condo residents love having the opportunity to have regular, unplanned social interactions with their neighbors. Living in a condominium development prevents the isolation that sometimes occurs while living in a single-family dwelling and can even provide a strong sense of community among residents. There are also opportunities to socialize by joining the community garden or getting together on the rooftop patio for some sunshine and relaxation.

The biggest advantage of condo ownership is convenience. Whether you are looking for less maintenance and upkeep or want to be a part of a strong community with accessible activities and services, condo living might be the right lifestyle choice for you. Register with us today to learn more about our unique waterfront development and how you can be the newest member of our community.
