Once you finally move out, regardless of whether it is from your parent’s home or from your hostel, you need to make smart decisions because you don’t have someone else’s support. So, when you are looking up potential spots and have decided to live in the city, you have the option to either opt for a condo or an apartment since they are the only accommodation available in the city district.
A lot of people use the terms condos and apartments interchangeably which is understandable but the two are different things. The defining factor between the two is property ownership. Once you have met all your payments, you are the owner of a property aka the condo. With apartments, you cannot own them and you only have your apartment for as long as your lease lasts or till you are the able to make the monthly rent, you are not a permanent owner.
Condos are also relatively upscale when compared with apartments and there are fewer units in a condominium than an apartment. Another difference is that condos are more expensive than apartments and they offer amenities like a swimming pool, a parking area, shared gym etc. These amenities differ depending on which condominium you choose. You can book a tour to visit E Condos in case you are currently looking for available condos.
Condo users have to pay for maintenance in the form of homeowner association fees and this only covers outside maintenance. If anything goes wrong within the condo, the owner has to pay for that out of their own pocket as well. On the other hand maintenance of all kinds comes under the responsibility of the landowner in the case of apartments. They both have their own advantages and setbacks and ultimately you decide which option is more convenient for you.
