You have to read endless lists of amenities when you’re looking for a condo. Then you need to decide which ones you want, which ones you need, and which ones you don’t. (Is that roof helipad really necessary?) You can read more. It’s great to imagine all the things you would like (coffee delivered to your bedroom every morning would be a wonderful one), but when it comes to buying a condo, what features and benefits will people actually want?
It’s easy to see which features and amenities are most appealing to buyers by looking at reports and recent experiences. These are the top features that condo buyers consider the most important and the best.
Rooftop recreation: The high life
High-rise condo buyers prefer buildings with many floors to low-rise units — this was one of the top 3 desirable features in 2014 for condo sales. Condo units in high-rise buildings offer spectacular views of the surrounding area, which is hard to ignore.
Condo buyers who have children or are planning to have them in the near future will look for amenities that can accommodate them. Condo buildings can offer a family-friendly appeal with daycare and play areas for children, as well as community activities.
A lot of condo buildings are successful in hosting events for children. Parents will love the proximity of good schools.
As trends for desirable amenities fall over the years, location remains at the top of the list for condo features. It won’t be losing its position anytime soon.
