Buying an Ottawa condo? - What are the benefits?

Are you considering buying a condominium in the Ottawa area? Condo ownership offers a different lifestyle from that of a freehold residential home buyer. Here are just a few of the many benefits of owning an Ottawa area condo:

  • Enhanced security
  • Many condos offer a security guard or security system
  • Outdoor maintenance
  • From lawn care and gardening in the spring, summer, and fall to snow removal in the winter, your common expense fees (condo fees) are used in part to pay for this service
  • Building amenities
  • Depending on the building, you may enjoy the use of a pool, sauna, whirlpool, rooftop terrace, party room, exercise room, children’s area, or convenience store
  • Storage and parking units
  • Depending on the building, your ownership may include the exclusive use or ownership of a storage locker and parking unit(s)
  • Location
  • If you prefer a particular area of the city, you can choose to buy a condo within walking distance to the Rideau Canal, shopping area, schools, public transit, recreational facilities, parks, etc.

If you like the idea of living in a beautiful condo with a view of the cityscape or Rideau Canal, having a full-time gardener and snow removal staff, community living, and having the use of exercise and pool facilities every day, then condo living would be perfect for you.
