From luxury hotels to condos, the Sunny Isles real estate scene is alive and bursting with the best of views and comfort. Many people wishing to buy or rent have contacted realtors for an opportunity to own prime properties in the Sunny Isles area. A condominium is a good option as they have more amenities to offer than townhouses. Condos may have gardens, pools and even off-street parking.
A condominium is a building that consists of several apartments, each with individual ownership. The individual owners contribute toward the upkeep of common areas, exterior structure and other amenities. They are different from townhouses in that while townhouses may be multi or single-story and linked by walls that are common, the owner holds the land title. Condo owners don’t hold the land title.
So what should you check for when buying Sunny Isles condos?
Size. Always ensure that you look at and are comfortable with its size. Will it be enough for your family?
Plumbing. Confirm that all the plumbing works, from toilets, sinks, showers, and vents. Make certain that the gas and electricity works as well.
Proper maintenance. The Sunny Isles condo should be well maintained and the amenities offered should be right for you. Of course, looking at the amenities and ensuring that they are what you need and want is key. Look to see that the painting is maintained and the common areas well kept.
Right neighborhood and neighbors. You should look at where the building is situated and assess if it’s the right setting for you, particularly if you have a family. Are fellow condo owners people you will get along with?
Cost comparison. It is best to window shop before making a final decision. You may get a better deal by looking at other condos on sale in the same Sunny Isles location.
The certificate of insurance of the building may help you understand other issues such as development costs, which may be covered.
Community association. This is both an advantage and a disadvantage of buying condos. If the community association’s fees are too high for your liking, then it may be wise to reconsider, as they are costs you cannot avoid. Getting the minutes of their meetings and looking into any outstanding issues on expensive maintenance and repairs is something you should do. Remember that once you buy the property you will also shoulder that cost in addition to your mortgage.
Number of condos that are for sale. If the building has many units for sale then it may be an indication that many previous owners have been highly dissatisfied with living conditions and the building. As long as the building is not new and has many vacant apartments ask yourself why this is the case. You can learn more about the luxurious condominiums for sale at Sunny Isles.
