Townhouse Condos London Ontario Information


 Townhouse condo, townhome condo, freehold condo, condominium residence aren't they all the same? There seems to be some confusion about the differences between them and to make the complexity more befuddled if you google all,  you will see what I mean.

    Information Condos in Lonon Ontario

  So, in London Ontario and area, Realtors, builders and lawyers generally define them as the following:

  • Townhouse Condo: Can be attached or detached, single floor or a two or three storey

 

  • Town Home Condo: Usually detached, more upscale and freehold or a general condominium corporation

 

  • Free Hold Condo: Detached, you own the land and are responsible for your roof, windows, doors, and you pay a nominal fee to the condo corporation for road maintenance and common grounds.

 

  • Condominiums:  Can be apartment residences as well as a townhouse and a townhome. Below are all three that are listed for sale in London Ontario and area.

  Now, before anyone wants to nitpick me on the above descriptions, I have helped hundreds of buyers and sellers of condos in London, and these definitions worked for them. Take note that your lawyer and the status certificate of the condo corporation and the property you are buying or selling is defined quite clearly in all documents and ownership is defined.

 A professional Realtor will have already verified that for you, but then, what do we know, we are out seeing condos every day!

                                             Where To Start?

   Most start by going to MLS and picking up all the real estate magazines they can get their hands on & going to open houses or model homes.

 

  That's an excellent way to get a feel for price and style. But then what? What about specific condo rules, fees and financial stability of the condo corporation, amenities and other questions that should be very important for you to know?

Going to Western & Buying a Property in London Ontario?


 I have worked with hundreds of buyers who wish to purchase a condo or a house while attending Western and in most cases, don't know where to start.

Where to Start if buying a home in London Ontario

Two of the biggest concerns  I hear are:

  1. Is the area safe and how close to Western?
  2. Will my investment be a prudent one and when I or my son or daughter graduates, will the property appreciate?

 

These are all valid concerns & rightfully so.

Usually, I hear: 'I'm arriving in London next weekend and want to see some properties." 

So far so good.

I ask: " Why, when, where, how much, why & how long do you plan to hold it for?" Having a 30 to 40-minute discussion before seeing any properties helps a buyer clarify and understand the reality of the London market and helps us, as professionals, to select and guide a potential buyer to the features that fit their criteria and needs.

Having a London Ontario market education of properties allow accurate decisions with less fear and challenges.

Important Steps When Buying a London Condominium


  Buying a condominium in London Ontario is far different than buying a single family home, though similar, you now have condominium regulations, by-laws, a board of directors and what do the condo fees include? 

Your lawyer has to be more thorough and do more work, your mortgage lender has more preparation, and your Realtor should have an in-depth knowledge of condominiums, it's fees, by-laws, rules and regulations and what the long-term financial responsibilities you may have to be responsible for, anytime there is a purchase or sale of a condominium.

   the best is yet to come

  For many buyers, it can be an expensive process than it need be if they make some of the many common mistakes which trap them into either paying too much, losing their dream condo to another buyer, or worse, buying the wrong one!
