There are so many reasons for considering buying a condominium, and, right now, in the Oakland area, there are an amazing number of condos and lofts available in every possible price range. Many are located in or near the downtown area among colorful artist studios, wonderful and imaginative restaurants, and handy work and transportation sources.

This would be an excellent time to put this purchase of a loft or condo into your real estate plans.  Here are some benefits of owning either:

1. Lofts or Condos tend to be an excellent first step to getting into the real estate market.  Their initial price is reasonable, and even with homeowner association fees, the monthly cost can beat a single family home for those just entering the housing market.  Additionally, they are well suited for those who want to step down from a large home to smaller, cozier quarters.

2. Ownership associations see to it that your property values are protected by making sure that all the necessary maintenance in and around the building is carried out-i.e. lawn and plant care, pool cleaning, etc..

3. Many condos have amenities that an individual homeowner could not afford on his own without a giant increase in monthly living expenses.  Many buildings include a pool, a gym, a doorman, and meeting rooms.

4. Because many condos and lofts have been renovated from former uses, they are open, light and airy, with newer kitchens and bathrooms. You will have lots of choices to consider.

I have created a list for you to refer to to get you started.  Please go to my webpage and look around:

open floor plan, and amazing views of the New York City skyline. Even with a door man, a pool, and a parking garage, the condos were relatively affordable. Nevertheless, it felt like an apartment. When I’m ready to find a place to spend the bulk of the remainder of my life, I still believe I’d prefer a house with a yard, a garage, a basement, and a quiet street. - See more at: http://www.consumerismcommentary.com/condo-owning-benefits/#sthash.abhwHg8J.dpuf
