Finding the perfect condo home can be challenging given the numerous properties found all over the metro. Aside from considering the location, amenities, and the type of units available, you must also keep in mind the other services offered such as security. Be guided by the list below:

Is there 24-hour security?

Safety is one of the number one priorities for your home. Be sure that your prospective condo provides 24-hour security. Ask your condo administration if the condo’s main areas are equipped with security cameras and ask the administration about the locks in the units.

Is there ample parking space?

It’s essential to ask the building manager about the parking rules for residents or guests. If there are a few slots for sale, ask for other options that you can consider.

Are pets allowed?

Make sure you ask about the policies on pets. Some low-rise and medium-rise developments with big outdoor areas allow dogs and cats, while other condos will only allow you to bring in a fish bowl.

What are the available amenities?

Living in a condo allows you to have access to the gym, pool, sauna, or playground. Do your research and see if your prospective condo offers the amenities that you are looking for.

What housing loan options are being offered by the developer?

If you feel that the fee is too high, ask for more options from your real estate broker. It’s good to assess what type of loan works for your lifestyle and budget.
