Buyers Were Asking: Complex Concerns - Empty Nester

For the empty nester, the prospect of moving into a town home complex is often met with anxiety...
  • What if I hate living in such close quarters?  
  • Condo fees are a waste of money.  
  • I'll never fit all my stuff in!  
RELAX...  Too many people get all worked up at even the prospect of selling the family home and then a year later, after the condo move, will tell us they should have done it years sooner.  You really owe it to yourself to at least take a look first and then make the decision that best suits you.  By investigating all your options, you'll at least increase your choices rather than just deciding that this is not at all an option.  

It's really about quality of life, isn't it?  Take a drive through complexes you think might be to your liking.  Drive through at 9 AM, 12:00 PM, 3:30 PM and 10 PM.  You'll see first hand what is happening in the neighbourhood...
  • Are there lots of little children playing in the playgrounds?  
  • Are the grounds in good repair?  
  • Is the complex in a neighbourhood you are familiar with?  
  • Is there enough parking?  
If you're having trouble settling on a complex to start looking into, view units in different complexes.  That way, you're broadening your options.  Once you've settled on a specific complex, ask your sales rep to show you all of the available homes within the complex.  You can then start narrowing down the floor plan which best suits your needs.  Maybe you want a finished basement for your new found hobbies.  Maybe you prefer to finish it yourself so that you can ensure it is to your specific tastes and needs.  
If you decide, nope, you really would prefer a smaller home, then, that's ok too.  At least you've investigated your options!
