Buy a Condo - Cressy & Everett Real Estate

If you're tired of paying rent but would like to pay a bit less than a typical single-family home costs, buying a condo in Saint Joseph, MI can offer the best of both worlds for some buyers. You'll own your unit and will build equity, but outside maintenance will be taken care of. In addition, prices for condos tend to be less than those for single-family homes.

Our real estate agents suggest the following five things to look for if you're thinking about buying a condo:

  1. What amenities are available?
    One advantage of condo living is that you may be able to enjoy amenities that many homeowners don't have. St. Joseph has some high-end condos with water views, so you may be able to have some impressive extras that might not have fit into your budget otherwise. You may also have access to other amenities such as a pool, tennis court, greenspace or fitness center. And if you like to socialize, look for a community that hosts events for its residents at the property's clubhouse.
