condoFactors to Consider When Buying a New Condo
Seattle has so much to offer for singles and couples, families and retirees. It’s a place where condos are the properties of choice — the most affordable properties in the metropolis that still offer plenty of space. If you want to become a Seattle condos owner and stop throwing your money away on rent, consider a few key factors when making your decision.

There are incredible Seattle condos for buyers with virtually any budget. Size, location, and condition of the property all play a role in the price — and you’re usually not stuck with the asking price if you have the right agent unless there’s a lot of competition for the property.
While the best condos do sell quickly, working with the Stroupe Group experts will help ensure you go in with a competitive bid, one that’s most fair to you and most likely to win you the chance to purchase the property.

Size and Storage
How many rooms do you need? You probably think you can manage with as many bedrooms as you have family members or even one fewer if you’re moving as a couple. That may be the case. However, it’s especially important you consider space if you’re downsizing from a larger home. You won’t be able to fit a fraction of your belongings in a smaller space. It’ll be helpful to have an extra room you can use for storage, an office or a guest room. At the very least, you could look for loft space or a condo with an extra garage space or storage unit.


What does the condo association offer its residents? Some condos have on-site pools, gyms, community centers, and other amenities for residents. They may offer to take care of all of the things that need fixing in your place or mow any grass you have for you. These are things to consider in addition to the size and price of the condo.
