Houston is home to a stable and diverse real estate market. Whether you’re looking for a single-family home, mid-rise or high-rise condo, townhouse or apartment, we’ve got them in spades. For today's post, we’re focusing on one of Nan and Company Properties’ many specialties: luxury condos in Houston. With people living busier lives, condos are becoming an increasingly attractive choice due to their convenience and low-maintenance lifestyle. If you’re looking to buy your first home but are stuck trying to decide which home type is best for you, consider these advantages for condos!
If you’re a first-time home buyer looking for a cozy and highly manageable space or an empty nester looking to downsize, buying a condo is a great choice. In general, the size of a condo is more limited than that of a house, meaning less area to clean and less space to accumulate clutter. However, don’t let the idea of smaller space dissuade you. Condo living does not always equal smaller. There are often plenty of one-bedroom condos with more square footage than a two-bedroom home. Basically, no matter what size you’re looking for, there’s a condo floor plan for you.
2. Minimal Maintenance
One of the biggest perks of condo ownership is that the individual owners are not directly responsible for performing maintenance on the building, common areas or grounds. For many people, this is desirable because it creates more free time. For others, it is a well-earned break following many years of home maintenance. If the roof needs repairs, if the lawn needs to be mowed, or if the pool needs cleaning, someone else will take care of it!
Another one of the many advantages is the amenities that come with luxury condos, including Olympic sized pools, state-of-the-art fitness centers, saunas, sports courts, private movie theaters, expansive terraces, and more. Owners may also have access to a club room, or even other features that some of the larger upscale developments offer, such as housekeeping, dog walking, dry cleaning, car maintenance, personal trainers and in-home chefs.
If you live alone, or security is a concern for you, this can be a major perk. In some of Houston’s luxury condos, like the Belfiore, units include their own garages and private entrances serviced by security personnel to ensure maximum safety for residents. Many condos also include doormen, gated locked entries, surveillance cameras and 24 hour on-site security. You’d also be living in close proximity with your neighbors. In an emergency, you’ll have plenty of people to turn to for help!
5. Location, Location, Location
There is often a high concentration of condos in locations where land is at a premium. If you want to live in the heart of the city, buying a luxury condo may be a great choice for you! You can easily enjoy a prime location with closer proximity to work, shops, restaurants, and other major areas of entertainment! Luxury condos in Houston are situated in some of the city’s most vibrant areas, such as Uptown, Downtown, Texas Medical Center, Upper Kirby and River Oaks.
