via MyFirstCondo – Your marriage is a contract like no other and starting your life together has its challenges. If you’re searching the market for your first home, condo living is an option you should consider. It takes out many of the headaches and conflicts that a single home ownership might introduce into the relationship. Take it from Hollywood actor and director Clint Eastwood who remarked, “They say all marriages are made in heaven, but so are thunder and lightning.”
Living in a condominium is a growing trend among young professionals, newlyweds and small families. Let’s explore seven compelling reasons why living in condo is ideal for you and your brand-new spouse.
1. Condo living is cost-efficient
If you compare getting a two-bedroom house versus buying a condo unit, the latter is the more practical option. You can opt to rent a unit although the monthly rent is usually about the same as the monthly mortgage in a condo unit. Why rent when you can own?
Living in a condo also means that you’re free from outdoor work such as tending the garden, repainting the fences, etc. The condo personnel can take care of these chores for you. A small space requires minimal maintenance, a few pieces of furniture, and only the essential appliances. Since you’re starting your life together, every effort to stretch the dollar is needed.
