  • Organized Recreational and Social Activities-There are numerous adult lifestyle condominium complexes in Oakville and Burlington that offer residents a wide choice of orgainzed activities and classes.

  • Less Maintenance Required-Condominium complexes usually have outdoor maintenance and yardwork taken care of as part of the monthly fees.

  • Lower Insurance Costs-As a condominium owner (freehold condominium exception) you will be responsible for insuring your personal belongings, the interior of your unit and personal liability. The condominium corporation is responsible for the common ownership areas and exterior of the units.

  • Investment Value-Condominium values continue to rise in the Oakville and Burlington areas, making a conominium purchase a wise choice for investors.

  • Decreased Energy Costs-The majority of condominiums share outside walls in common with their neighbouring units and this serves to greatly decrease the amount of energy required to heat and cool each unit. In addition, many condominium complexes supply hot water to the individual units from a common source. This can greatly reduce your monthly electricity costs.

  • Lower Property Taxes-Municipal taxes for a condominium unit are comparably lower than taxes for a detached home.

Buying a condominium is a wise decision and having a real estate sales representative who understands and is knowledgeable about the condominium buying process and what to watch out for, can bring a smooth and enjoyable buying experience that you will remember with pleasure.
