If you are in the market for something to live in, you may want to consider purchasing a condo. This article will discuss 3 reasons why you should purchase a condo.
It Is A Great First Home
If you and your spouse, or just you on your own, are looking for a place to live, a condo is an excellent option. The condo is smaller in size and generally doesn't have a large yard to take care of. This is great from a person or young couple who are busy working and/or going to school and don't have the time or money to care for a yard. You can also find several condos in the city, which is convenient for most single people or young couples because this is where the majority of their life takes place. The size and location generally make it a great first home.
Perfect For Renting Out
Once you are done living in the condo, it is perfect for renting out. This is especially true if you are staying in the area, but simply purchasing something that is bigger or in a different area of town. Since you are close, you likely won't have any issues being the landlord to the property and meeting the needs of your renters. You can also closely monitor your condo to ensure that it is well taken care of. This is a very profitable venture for you, especially if your condo is already paid off and all of the money that you are making from the renters is profit for you. However, even if you are still paying on the condo, you can charge the renters more than your mortgage and still make a profit.
Easy To Resale
Lastly, if you decide that you would like to sell your condo at some point in time, you will most likely have no issues doing so. As long as the market is normal, you should be able to find a buyer rather quickly that will purchase your condo from you for a good price. This will allow you to build equity in the condo for as long as you own it, and then sell it for a profit. If you do some updates and repairs in the condo yourself, you may even make a larger profit because you can sell the condo for quite a bit more than your purchased it for, depending on what type of work you did.Share
