When searching for a condominium to call home there often are many perks that many people do not initially think of. Condominiums are built with plenty of
amenities so that its residents have the ability to fully utilize not just their individual units but also many areas of the condominium building itself. Having
the ability to use these amenities acts as an extension of the resident’s living space. Amenities vary depending on each individual building and some are quite unique.
Mostly all condominium buildings will have an exercise room located within the building. The exercise room itself will definitely vary depending on the
condominium building. Some exercise rooms will be fully equipped with multiple exercise machines, yoga studios and a wide variation of other gym equipment. Some fitness centers may only contain the basics. Having an exercise room located within the condo itself does add a great deal of convenience for residents looking to exercise on their free time without having to leave the comfort of their own home.
Many condos will also provide exercise amenities that go above and beyond when it comes to fitness. Many condominiums will provide swimming pools and often times even a hot tub. Pools in condominium buildings can range from basic lap pools to Olympic sized swimming pools. Many condo buildings even have outdoor pools available in the summer and the majority of condominium buildings have outdoor rooftop terraces with BBQ areas. When determining what condo is best for you its great to do some research beforehand. Condo builders are trying to make condo residents feel like they have everything that a home would have.
There are many condominium buildings that have very unique amenities. Some buildings, although more rare to find, have squash and tennis courts. Some buildings in and around the GTA even have basketball courts and either virtual golf options or even putting greens! Although these amenities are not common, if you are an avid golfer, it might be worthwhile letting your real estate agent know because there definitely is a condo building out there for everyone.
Condo buildings also provide residents with party rooms. These party rooms can act as an extension of living space for residents who wish to cater to larger groups. The party room can be rented for large events and most have kitchens within them if residents wish to simply entertain and cook dinner for their friends and family. Condo developers understand that space is something that residents take into consideration, and with the addition of various amenities in buildings they hope to be able to make up for any loss space.
Overall it is important to understand condos and their amenities before making a purchase. If you feel that a building has everything you are looking for hobby wise then you may have found something that is right for you. It is important to consider that the more amenities a condo building has the higher ones maintenance fee will be. So if you feel you may only use the basketball court once a year it might be better to find a building that is better suited for your needs.
