Condos are an excellent alternative for First Time Buyers!
In a market where homes can sell for upwards of $300 per sq ft, first time buyers can find excellent value in condos, Bo Kauffmann of Remax Performance Realty reports.
"I had noticed this trend a couple of years ago, when prices for detached homes were going thru the roof. After that, there was a time when condos became a more popular choice, and prices jumped accordingly. We are NOW, in my opinion, entering another time when condos provide excellent value once again."
Consider this: Bo recently listed a 700 sq ft bi-level home in the south end of the city. Although this home had a few upgrades, it did not have a garage, nor where appliances included. This home received 11 offers and sold for over $215,000.
As an alternative, Bo points to several townhome condos available in the south end of the city. At 1100 sq ft in size, these units offer plenty of space, and great features such as insuite laundry, central air-condition, central furnace, upgrades to bathrooms, parking spots and low condo fees.
Bo points out that there are a number of great reasons why condos are a wise option, with Value just being one of those reasons. For a look at the full list, go to Bo's blog at
