Why Condo Living Is Great For Newlyweds

If you’re newlyweds and looking for your first home, condo living could take away a lot of the hassle of finding somewhere safe, comfortable, and cost-efficient to live. With all the benefits that come with living in a condominium, it’s no surprise that this choice is rising in popularity with both young couples and retirees. Could this be the right choice for your new family?

1. Spend More Time Together

Instead of spending your precious time doing yard work, spend that time with your new spouse. Living in a condominium means that condo personnel take care of your chores for you. No more yard work or house repairs to eat up your time.  No need to worry about buying a fixer-upper because condominiums are made to be modern and well kept.

2. Stay Fit and Healthy

The Marina Grande’s 24 hour waterfront gym is state of the art. Now you and your partner can team up and encourage each other be stronger and healthier. Most condos also have pools and other sports amenities to help get your blood pumping. Practice yoga before work, or go for a run within the safety of your gated community.

3. Unwinding is Easy

After you and your partner hit the gym, what better way to cool off and unwind then to go swimming? Marina Grande has two luxurious swimming pools and a Jacuzzi spa to help you relax. Or you could lay around on the sundecks together with a good book. If you prefer to watch movies together, you could try Marina Grande’s 18 seat THX movie theater to watch your favorite box office hit in 7.1 surround sound. No matter how you like to relax, condo living makes it easier. If you don’t want to stay in, most condominiums are built next to thriving towns and cities so finding somewhere to hangout or go out to eat should be a piece of cake.

4. Make New Friends

Since the concept of condo-living is becoming a popular choice for young couples, making friends in your new neighborhood is easy. The Marina Grande is a tight knit community with events and gatherings created by it’s very own social committee. You could hang out at the gardens, pools, and fitness centers and get to know your new neighbors.

5. Feel Safe and Secure

Peace of mind is practically guaranteed with 24/7 security everywhere from the main gates and into the common areas.  Safety and security should never be taken for granted, so feel more at ease with your home with one less thing to worry about.

Tips For First Time Condo Buyers

If you’re looking for a new residence, a condo can be a great investment. If you’ve been living in a home, it’s important to know that condo living is going to have its differences. We will lay out these differences as well as some other factors to consider, as you continue reading. These tips for first time condo buyers will help you know what to expect as you go through the process.

Tips For First Time Condo Buyers

Moving from a home to a condo will require you to consider a few things you may not have had to worry about in a home. When living in a condo, you will have neighbors who are separated from you by just a wall. You may have neighbors above, below and beside you, so you’ll have to take them into consideration. You’ll need to be cautious of making too much noise, for the sake of your neighbors. Unfortunately, you may not always be rewarded with the same consideration. Another difference between a home and a condo is the lack of a yard. If you’re a gardener or like to do activities in the yard, you won’t have that option with a condo.

You will want to inquire about two things which can be a challenge for condo owners: storage and parking. Storage is limited in a condo, as you won’t have as much space as you would in a home. Many condos will come with additional storage but others will not. Parking is another important factor to consider. Does your condo come with a parking or garage space? Will the parking space leave your car exposed to the elements?

Owning a condo has many benefits and as long as you consider all of the details, you will love living in one. We hope these tips for first time condo buyers will help make your decision easier.
