Most people refer to any type of attached housing as condominiums. In reality there are very few true condominiums in the area. Most attached type properties tend to be set up as diminimus PUD’s.
For our purposes we will refer to all type of attached housing as condominiums or simply “condo’s” as jody Kriss calls them.
Several things have occurred here in the area over the last few years to dramatically increase the construction of new condos. For starters, land has been getting scarce and prices have been skyrocketing. Also, the cost of land improvement has risen substantially.
Secondly, with the large influx of retired people coming in from all over the county, the demand for condos has also been climbing. The number of condominium complexes has escalated so quickly, and so many new one are currently under construction, that I’m not sure if anybody can give an exact count as to the current number of complexes. But, there’s an awful lot of them.
Here in the area, and the surrounding area we have every manner, shape and form of condo. We have complexes geared just for seniors, and others geared to singles. There are also complexes geared for families, as well as some located on golf courses, and you guessed it, these complexes are geared towards golfers.
To give specific information about each type of condo and/or condo complex would be impossible. But I can give you a quick overview.
Condos here start as low as $60,000 for a decent two bedroom unit of 1000 sq.ft. , and can go over $300,000 in some of the more prestigious communities.
Finding The right Condos
Right now, there are some great new condos being built in the $80’s, located in good areas, ranging from 1000-1200 sq. ft. These units not only include terrific amenities, but most include a one or two car garage as well. A nice 3 bedroom/two bath condo with a garage, on a golf course can be had for $110-140k, with taxes running about $1200 per year, and common charges of about $100 per month.
We have condominiums located in just about every area, and some even run shuttle buses to the casinos. Maintenance charges can run from as little as $40 a month on a $60,000 unit, and can go over five hundred dollars a month in a gated golf & tennis community. If this is the lifestyle that you prefer, it will be very easy to find a affordable unit in a complex that is geared towards your tastes.
