What is a condo?
When we say the word “condo” or “condominium,” most people think of tall buildings spotted with balconies in an urban area. It is true that some condominium complexes are like that, but not all. The official definition of condominium is “individual ownership of a unit in a multi-unit structure.” This means that condominiums are multiple units owned by different parties with common ownership of land. There are no other requirements!
Now that we have shared the definition of a condominium, we want to explain the benefits of a condominium lifestyle.
Designer Features and World-Class Amenities
One of the best things about a condominium lifestyle is that it provides homeowners with amazing designer features and access to world-class amenities. For example, our Greenwich Walk at FoxCreek community in Moseley offers four distinct home plans with 2-4 bedrooms, 2-3 bathrooms, and 2-car garages. Each home offers spacious patios for outdoor enjoyment and first-floor owner’s suites with incredible attached bathrooms. Homeowners will also have access to Greenwich Walk amenities including a heated outdoor pool and tennis courts.
Even though Greenwich Walk at FoxCreek homes are defined as condominiums, these homes do not share any walls. Each is completely separate from the other, but they do share a common space driveway and some public areas.
Low Maintenance Lifestyle
Condominiums also provide homeowners with the low-maintenance lifestyle that they are looking for. Forget the long hours of mowing the lawn or cleaning gutters – it’s all taken care of! Our Sandler Station community (pictured above) in North Chesterfield offers first-floor living homes with 2-car garages and spacious living areas. Minutes from Midlothian shopping and dining, VA-76 and VA-288, Sandler Station will feature community amenities including a clubhouse.
While homes in Sandler Station do share some walls, each home has three separate entrances including a garage.
Great Social Activities
When purchasing a new home, one of the first things buyers consider is whether or not they will get along with their neighbors. Condo living provides homeowners with tons of opportunities to get together and socialize. In fact, homeowners at Greenwich Walk have set up numerous weekly get-togethers and communicate regularly on their Facebook page. Homeowners in Sandler Station are doing the same. These two communities offer a fun and exciting social scene for homeowners.
At HHHunt, we believe it’s how you live those matters, and as you start your homebuying journey, we hope that you will give condominiums a look. They aren’t what they used to be! Want to learn more? Check out our related blog on the differences of townhomes and condos here!
