Luxury House Vs. Condo: Which Is the Right Choice for You? January 29, 2018

Moss Bay, Seattle East
Luxury House Vs. Condo: Which Is the Right Choice for You?, Seattle East, Washington

Having a larger budget while searching for a new home will enable you to find a place that suits all your wants and needs. Amongst the many listings of luxury homes for sale, there’s also a wide array of top-tier condos. If you’re not sure of what type of home to choose, Eddie Chang at Sotheby’s International Realty in Kirkland, WA, will assist you. Below, he compares upscale condos and luxury homes for sale, so you can make the right decision. 

Luxury Homes for Sale

Luxury Homes for SaleWhen most people think of spending a significant amount of money on a piece of real estate, they think of luxury houses. There are many benefits to buying a lavish property, including increased square footage. This is especially attractive to buyers with large families or a love for entertaining friends.

Buyers who have pets should also look for houses rather than condos, because of the availability of back and front yards. Raising a large dog is especially difficult in a condo, since they need ample space to run around. In some cases, large pets are not allowed in condominiums.

Upmarket Condos for Sale

Although condos offer less square footage and outdoor yard space, you might consider buying one if you lead an on-the-go lifestyle. Most luxury condos offer wonderful amenities such as swimming pools, exercise facilities, and game rooms. They may even host weekly events so residents can get to know other people in the community. If you choose to live in a upscale condo, you will be physically and socially active.

While leading an active lifestyle is an excellent way to make friends, everyone needs time alone. Keep in mind that a luxury condo is less private than a house. You will have to share communal areas and amenities and interact with neighbors on a daily basis. If you enjoy complete privacy, a condo is probably not for you. 

Making the right decision about where to live can be complicated, but with the assistance of the real estate agents at Sotheby’s International Realty, the process is far less stressful.
