Why Condos Make the Perfect First Home
After years of renting or living with your parents, you’re finally ready to buy your own home. Perhaps it’s your own wedding gift to you and your new spouse or maybe you and a partner are moving in together for the first time. Whatever has led you into home ownership, consider buying a condo, especially if you’re in the Seattle area. Condos make for the most ideal first home for singles and couples and even small families.
The Seattle condos you’ll find for sale are available in a variety of price ranges and are sure to meet virtually any budget. Condos are more affordable than houses, especially in a metropolitan area like Seattle.
There isn’t a lot of room to build homes in crowded cities like Seattle. The only way to live a convenient commute — or even walk — from everything the city has to offer is to buy a condo. Just let your Stroupe Group agent know about your favorite Seattle area sites to visit and how far you want to be from your job and they’ll find you the best neighborhood to suit your needs.
Condos are available in a variety of sizes, from studio to one-bedroom to two-bedroom and even more. There are some units with underground or garage parking and others with multiple levels and loft spaces. If this is your first home, you probably don’t have more belongings than can comfortably fit in a condo space, so you won’t have to worry about downsizing. In fact, if you’re coming from renting or living in a room at your parents’ house, you’ll have considerably more space to work with.
