Whether you are a young professional just starting out in life or a retiree, San Diego Condos may be an ideal place for you to live. Unlike San Diego apartments, your monthly payments go to build equity in your home and you’ll still have a great beachfront property location!
Many young professionals use their downtown San Diego condos as a starter home. For others, their luxury downtown condo is their dream home. Many exclusive high-rise condominiums offer large homes along with many amenities that would not be found in a single family home. These homes may have attended parking, theater rooms, large pools and exercise rooms. The home is close to the office so that they do not have to worry about all the hours spent in Southern California traffic. The condo is close enough to work that they are able to walk, bike or take a bus. Once they start a family and income increases, they may move out of the condominium into a house in the suburbs. For now, however, the condominium is the perfect home. When it is time to move, they may sell the condo to raise the down payment for the next home or retain it for use as a rental.
On the other end of the spectrum are the retirees that love San Diego condominiums for living. Many are able to sell the large family home and downsize into a beachfront condo. The money received from the sale of the larger home allows them to pay cash for the condominium and invest for a more luxurious retirement in sunny San Diego.
One of the best features of condominiums is that owners find maintenance free living. The homeowners association (HOA) cares for the exterior of the building and the lawn. You are not going to spend every Saturday taking care of the lawn. When it is time for the building to be painted, you will not have to contract a painter. The HOA takes care of all this exterior maintenance, even the pool. Condo living offers all the advantages of living in an apartment with one major advantage, building equity in the unit.
You will find San Diego condos for sale in most beachfront realty listings. The realtor can lead you to the right condo for your lifestyle. Some condo communities are filled with young professionals while others seem to attract more seniors. Still other communities are mixed, with professionals, young families and seniors. Be sure that you discuss with your realtor your preferred lifestyle.
Life in San Diego is grand. There are cultural as well as education events every evening of the week. The weekend are a great time to visit Balboa Park or the world famous San Diego Zoo. Homes in San Diego are all just a short distance from the beaches of the Pacific Ocean. Just across the border is Juarez, Mexico, a great place for shopping and partying. Whether you choose to live in downtown or out a bit from the hustle and bustle of the city, there is likely a condo that is perfect for your lifestyle.
