Why Condo Living Might Be Right For You

There are several factors to consider when you’re thinking of buying a house. The list of pros and cons can seem unending, as you weigh price, location, upkeep, and more. Considering a condo as your future home can help make that list feel much shorter and more hopeful.



A tight-knit neighborhood is one thing, but nothing compares to the type of community condo owners experience. With shared spaces like courtyards, gyms, pools, and special events hosted by management; condo owners get to experience more of each others’ lives than homeowners might in typical neighborhoods. It’s the ideal situation for any people-person. 



Just like the opportunity to better connect with neighbors, condo owners often live closer to the city’s hotspots. Whether it’s convenience to a nice park, great shopping, the office, or the downtown night scene, condo owners often live within walking distance to the most lovable parts of their city. This saves time, money, and it adds a fun perk to everyday living.





Speaking of perks; top-notch gyms, swimming pools, and common areas are often included as part of a condo owner’s association fees. Rather than spending additional money on gym memberships or driving to a coffee shop to sit and work or mingle, condo owners are able to make the most of their downtime by utilizing the perks of a condo community. 


Low maintenance

Gone are the days of tending to a yard or managing major home malfunctions. Lawn care, pool maintenance, structural repairs, and general exterior upkeep are typically covered by the HOA. Condo dwellers are free to enjoy the luxury of their property’s amenities without worrying about the time, money, and effort the upkeep requires. This perk alone keeps condo owners raving about their living experience.


From typically lower prices to high caliber amenities to proximity to the heart of cities, it’s no surprise the condo market is so hot. Consider these pros for condo living as you make your way through the home buying process.

To know Alice Maxwell, Top Agent in Tuscaloosa AL, is quite frankly to love her. Vibrant and charming, she’s one of the region’s most successful REALTORS®. When asked about her sales, she sheepishly says, “Honestly, I’m not sure. I just take care of people. That’s what I love doing.” – Top Agent Magazine A Tuscaloosa Native, it’s this passion for people and knowledge of her hometown that has made Alice Maxwell a top REALTOR® in the Tuscaloosa area since 1993. She is quick to say, “I eat, sleep and breathe real estate. I love taking care of people!” It’s no surprise that clients quickly become lifelong friends, making her business one that is built on personal relationships, personal referrals and corporate relocations. By employing the latest technologies and marketing strategies, Alice does everything possible to ensure her clients’ properties are positioned and marketed for success. She and her team are committed to aggressively marketing their client’s listings, as well as finding the perfect home or condo for their buyers. To further assist her buyer’s need, she has a trusted network of professionals from inspectors, contractors, handymen to loan officers. Devoted to giving back to her community, Alice can often be found hammering at a new Habitat for Humanity house or feeding a group of students from Collegiate Recovery Community. She has served on the United Way Board, the Chamber of Commerce Board, and the Board of Directors for Capstone Bank, and as an Elder at First Presbyterian Church. She also serves her alma mater, The University of Alabama, as a member of the President’s Cabinet, Women of the Capstone, and Human Environmental Sciences Leadership Board.

When not busy with real estate, Alice and Johnny are often found spending quality time with their five grandchildren, their dogs, close friends or Alice’s 89-year-old mother, Dee. It’s a full and busy life! Alice probably sums it up best saying, “If you had told me years ago that I would be where I am today, I wouldn’t have believed it. I just know that I work hard and I believe that people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”
