Why Consider a Condo!

Why you should consider a condo?

In Winnipeg’s continuing hot real estate market why wouldn’t you consider all your options when you are wanting to purchase a property.  Why not investigate the advantages of buying a condominium?



Less Bidding Wars

Houses are typically recipients of a large number of offers and sometimes require giving up an inspection of the property.  Not only may you not know about the history or  foundation of the property but you may also have to leave your ideal location.   You can purchase a great condo at a great price without giving in on item on your “wish list”.




If you like to travel, or simply spend a lot of time away from the home, a condominium makes a great choice.  You have the security of the "turn key" lifestyle.

Condominium Security

Many condos offer security features not found in houses. Whether it be a security door system, cameras, a doorman or underground secure parking, you also have the security of your neighbors.


Especially in 55+ condos,  residents typically are of similar age and have similar interests and life-goals.  If you’re looking to belong to ‘community’, a condominium might be a great option

Operating Costs

Most often, the exterior maintenance of the condo is covered in your condo fees. It’s a gradual savings as opposed to being hit with a big bill when you find out something is wrong. In a house, when you find out your roof/shingles need to be replaced, the company will require your full payment when the job is done.  This shared expense within the condo is usually foreseen a head of time and  a lot easier to pay when its shared.

No Yard work and yet still a balcony to enjoy the outdoors

Tired of using your weekend to cut grass, or shoveling the snow every day in winter and all the stuff in between? Condominiums are pretty much “maintenance free” living and allows you to use your days off to do other things.  New builds have "caught on" to the need of a large outdoor space and have balconies with room for a table, chairs and a BBQ.


Feel free to give me a call as I would love to sit down with you and review all the benefits to a condo lifestyle.  There are a number of fantastic condos for sale and some that may just cover each one of you "must haves" on your wish list.
