The Vancouver condo market is the right choice for you!  With so much development in the condo market over the past few years, there has never been a better time to find that ideal condo home for you.  The neighbourhoods in and around UBC hold great promise and opportunity for not only professionals but also young families.  As an expert in UBC homes and the overall UBC real estate market, here are some great reasons as to why now is a great time to find your UBC condo.

It’s All about Location

Perhaps the strongest selling point of any condo is its location.  Condo living offers exciting opportunities from downtown living, living on or near major public transit lines, and—in this case—living in or around the premier place of higher learning in all of British Columbia.  These locations provide great opportunities for not only young couples or professionals, but also families.  

Neighbourhood Living

Every new condo complex that is developed brings a built-in neighbourhood.  This instant population boom also brings in a multitude of services.  What a great opportunity to step out of your condo door and walk to your nearest grocery store or favourite new restaurant.  This neighbourhood feel also allows you the possibility to meet new friends or people who share similar ideas, interests and hobbies.  Regardless of whether you meet your next best friend, one thing is guaranteed: you will get to know many new and exciting people who also call your condo complex home. 

Safety First

One of the major selling points for any condo is the fact that each building or complex has a buzz in system which keeps out unwanted visitors and guests.  This extra security feature will allow you to rest easier knowing that you will never encounter any unwelcome guests in your complex.  The tight knit community feel also serves as a type of neighbourhood watch.  Over time as you get to know different people in your complex, you will start to recognize familiar faces and perhaps question those who you do not recognize.  These added security features are ideal if you travel a lot or keep a different set of hours perhaps because of work.  

The Benefits of Strata

Perhaps one of the most overlooked positives of owning a condo are the benefits of strata.  The strata are the group who is in charge of making decisions for your condo complex.  Every month you will contribute to the strata through the collection of strata fees.  These fees are then used for the upkeep of the complex and its grounds. 

The nice part about paying strata fees is that when big jobs such as the roof or elevators need replacing, you will share these costs with all other residents in your complex.  Remember, condo living means you will never be on the hook to fully pay for any replacements or upgrades again!
