A Dallas Condominium Might Be The Perfect Choice For Your New Home

Townhomes

Condos may be the perfect choice when weighing the pro's and con's of owning and maintaining a house with a yard versus a more maintenance free lifestyle. For many Condo living is a preferred choice with fewer responsibilities, but there are more rules to adhere to.  Expenses vary, and part of the financial consideration to review is the monthly condo fees.  These are the expenses of maintaining the property that are shared by all of the owners in the community, and can run from as little as $100 per month to over $1,000 (or more).  It is important to review all of the HOA documents for the fees, maintenance and reserves required for a unit within a community to be sure that you budget your overall monthly costs correctly on owning this type of home.

Good afternoon Lisa - you expressed this well.  Downsizing is not automatically cheaper per month although it can be.

Hi Lisa... I never lived in a single family home in my entire life until I was 50 years old and we moved to Charlotte in 1989. I could easily go back to condo/coop style living.

I might buy a condo if I were in the area but everything looks really good all in all.

I agree George Souto calling the HOA for maintenance would be nice!
