Condominiums are in high demand, and there are 2 styles to choose from.
Condominiums have been steadily gaining in popularity in the past few years in Winnipeg. At least part of this is due to the fact that while buyers have a tough time finding a nice house under $150,000, condominiums are still available in this price range.
Whether you're a first-time home buyer, or an 'empty-nester', you will find Best condos which will fulfill your requirements. Here's an overview of available options as well as the differences between these:
1. Apartment-style: These are generally 3 stories tall or longer, and are characterized by having one overall entryway leading to a lobby or halls, from where the individual suites division away. Taller condominiums are ordinarily constructed with concrete flooring, which assists in the noise-reduction.
Ideally, you'd want a balcony so that you can sit out and have some clean air. Many have window a/c components, but the more bulky, more expensive ones have central air. Another thing to remember is that perhaps not all of these possess in-suite laundry that will be a wonderful choice to have.
They generally include a parking place, with underground places commanding a higher cost. These kinds of condos may occasionally still be found around the $100,000 mark for a 1-bedroom, and $125,000 and up to get a two BR, based on the choices.
2. Townhouse-style: These are often one and two-story buildings, with each unit with its own entry. The majority of them are wooden-frame structure, the drawback being that you can hear your neighbor's stereo (or romantic escapades).
