After much consideration, you’ve decided Phoenix is the perfect place for a winter home. We couldn’t agree more. With plenty of sunny days, stunning scenery, and a variety of options to keep you and your family entertained, you’ve chosen well.

But what kind of property should you purchase? Though you may live in a single-family home the rest of the year, purchasing a condo may be your wisest choice when buying a second property. With cost savings, increased security, premium amenities, and no need for ongoing maintenance, condominiums offer something that standalone homes cannot.

Here are just a few reasons why purchasing a condo is your best bet.

1. Amenities Included

A vacation home serves a different purpose than your main place of residence, and therefore comes with its own set of priorities. One of the things that sets a second home apart is a focus on recreation. Though having a pool, home gym, and party room may not be a top priority in your primary home, access to these amenities makes for a wonderful addition to a getaway property.

In condos, the costs of these expensive add-ons are split between all of the residents, making otherwise unaffordable luxuries suddenly accessible. Condo amenities may be especially valuable for families, as having an on-site pool and entertainment facilities means fun for the kids as well as the adults!  

2. Savings Abound!

Because condos are often cheaper than standalone homes, you can pass the savings along to more important priorities, like family adventures and experiences. Factor in the money you’ll save on maintenance costs and upkeep with a condo, and you’ve got yourself savings that can help you make the most of the time you spend in your second home.

3. Safe and Sound

Since you will not always be there to keep an eye on your second home, security is a natural concern. Aderra offers gated entryways, keeping your property safe during the months that you are away, as well as providing you with a sense of security when you are here.

In addition to this, condos can offer a built-in sense of community, as you live in close proximity to your neighbors. This makes purchasing a condo an especially smart decision for the elderly, as there are always others nearby in case of an emergency.

4. No Maintenance

One of the most beloved perks of condo ownership is the lack of maintenance required. As you will not be living at your vacation home constantly, choosing a condo means not having to do the extra work of hiring an on-site handyman or a property manager for when you are away. You likely already work hard to maintain your primary residence, so condo ownership can offer the perk of letting someone else take care of the dirty work for you.

At the end of the day, you’re the one who will determine what is best for you and your family. The most important thing to begin with is a clear understanding of the goals you have for your winter home. If recreation, ease, security, and savings are all priorities, then condo living is the right option for you.
