Are you planning on buying property in Bangkok? Are you not sure whether to go for a condo or a house? There are many good reasons to choose a condo over a house, especially if you are thinking of staying in the capital. Buyers choose to purchase condos for many different reasons, here are some advantages condos have over houses.
No Exterior Maintenance or Repairs – You do not have to worry about maintaining or repairing the exterior portion of the property. Homeowners have a lot to do to maintain their property, the list is long and exhausting. If you buy a house, you must think of all the additional work you will have to do throughout the month – clean the gutters, prune trees, mow the lawn, etc. Condo owners do not need to worry about these chores, they are too busy hanging out at the pool or exercising in the gym.
Location – If you decide to go for property in The River Condo project, you will have outstanding views of the nearby river and the city. Where would you find a reasonably priced house that can offer these features in Bangkok? Because condos are a little more compact, they are generally located in the best areas in town. They are usually built close to local transport and all the best shopping and entertainment zones. Most condo owners typically have shorter commutes as most homes are located in the suburbs.
Amenities – There is no comparison when it comes to buying a house or purchasing a condo. A condo has all sorts of useful facilities on-site that are free to use for owners. Most high-quality condominiums are packed with shared amenities that include pools, fitness centres, tennis courts and jogging trails. Normally, you don’t get these extras with a house.
Social Connections – If you are living alone or you enjoy mixing with other people, a condo is a great way to make connections. There will be plenty of people living in your condo which gives you the chance to make friends with your neighbours.
You will find that most condos, especially higher end projects are located in convenient locations. A condo houses many different people and with shared amenities it is easy to make friends. If you are single or married without kids, a condo is a better choice than a house. Although a condo has many benefits over a house, it really comes down to your own preference.
