Choose An Appleby Gardens Condo For Your First Home

Buying your first home can be an incredibly exciting time, but can become overwhelming. One major decision is the type of home to purchase. There are a number of options available, and determining which one is right for your lifestyle can be tricky. For many first time buyers, opting to buy a condo over a house can be the best way to go, as it offers many of the same perks as owning a house, with fewer drawbacks and financial risks.   Condos Often Have Better Value When looking at your first home, you may not be overly interested in the size of the surrounding property itself, preferring to focus on the number of rooms and size of the living space. In many cases, condos will offer you more for less, when compared to a house, in terms of the number of rooms and the size of the living space. In addition, condos often offer amenities that would be out of reach for the average first time home buyer in terms of cost. Access to special features like a pool, tennis court, and exercise room are often all included in your condo fees, helping to make your investment into your first home stretch even further.   Lower Maintenance Condo owners don’t need to worry about cutting the lawn, weeding the garden, or taking care of the exterior of the property. For many first time buyers this is an incredibly big perk of condo ownership. This frees up more of your time to focus on things that are important in your life, or just to relax after a hard day’s work, without the need to worry about landscaping or raking up the leaves in the fall. For a person with a busy life and packed schedule, condo ownership can offer the perks of owning a home without any of the time-sucking drawbacks.   Convenient Locations Condos are often located in areas that are prime locations; areas where purchasing a home could be significantly more expensive or less practical. Appleby Gardens Condominium, for example, offer easy access to shopping and culture without the need to hop in the car and drive...

Why Condo Living is Great for Families

We have previously addressed some of the benefits of living in a condo, and the list keeps growing! Another big benefit to condo living is its family-friendly nature. Through all stages of family life, a condo offers a comforting home environment while being optimally placed in an urban center. Rather than migrate to the suburbs with your family, consider purchasing a luxury condo in Appleby Gardens and making it your home! Below are some of the reasons why condos are great family homes: Amenities Living in an Appleby Gardens luxury condominium with your family means you have easy access to all the amenities your family could need. In-building amenities such as a party room, you can enjoy hosting a big birthday party conveniently located steps away from your door. Also with a fitness center in the building, a workout is a short walk from your condo saving you valuable time when you are busy raising a family.

You have access to all the supplies you need without the hassle of having to load the family into the car! Community When you live in a condominium, it’s easy to become friends with other families within the same building.

The camaraderie of families living in condos means a friendly neighborhood environment with mutual benefits like shared babysitting duties.

Adding a Splash of Colour

One of the first projects in your new Appleby Gardens Luxury Residences by LJM Developments may be to do a little interior decorating. If your new condo is a first-time home you may be looking to purchase new furniture, while if you are down-sizing you may bringing something old, borrowed or blue. However, it’s the walls that this article will truly focus on. Let’s face it, standard builder white, off-white or eggshell paint, will just not do. Of course this leaves you with a great base from which to add a spice of colour and accent to your new home. It’s a Matter of Palate Excuse the pun, but your palette may be wide, open and accepting, or it may be more diminutive, conservative and understated. In either case the palette you choose for the colours of your new home is entirely up to your own tastes. Simply take a look at the Internet and you will find a cornucopia of tastes that all hinge on the tastes of the particular designer behind the writings. You can find those that absolutely say white, grey and light shades in a smaller space will open it up and make it appear light and breezy. Of course, there are those experts in design that eschew anything that comes in stark white. These decorators prefer the panache of flair. So who’s to say, which of the experts is right? Technically you are. In your own home, it will be your choice on how, when and what colours you want to add to your walls. Rules to Play By Of course, any good interior designer will admonish you to follow some sort of theme; both with your furnishings and your colours. Often you decorate to match your personality; this is the only true rule to live by. Are you dark and brooding? Deep colours of blues and greys with a dash of black may provide exactly the feel in your living room, you want to live by. On the other hand, if you have a raucous cacophony of colourful furniture and accents, maybe that white background will be the perfect canvas. Maybe you want...
