When you're a young executive at a prestigious firm, with a six
figure salary and a promising future, buying a condo isn't quite
as appealing as buying a mansion. To most people, it might seem silly to prefer
having a box in a city tower rather than having your own home, land, and space,
but to the young professional on the go, that's simply a slice of heaven.
There's no more aggravating way to start your day than the morning commute.
Having to maneuver through traffic and wait with the million other cars on the
road can be stressful, annoying, and downright infuriating. So why do it? If
you could live just blocks away from your workplace, wouldn't that be
great? That's why condominiums are so appealing to the young urban professional.
With most businesses located in the downtown core of major cities, a condo in
the heart of it all can make going to work in the morning an enjoyable experience.
Wouldn't you rather take a walk in the cool morning air with a coffee
in your hand than inch your way along in traffic that's backed up for
When it comes to shopping, there's no place like downtown. Again, for
the young professional, these things are right at their doorstep when they live
in a downtown condo. Rather than having to order clothes from a men's or women's
online clothing store to save time, trusting that what they order will fit,
these young ladies and gentlemen can simply go down to the real store, try on
whatever they like, and take it home the same day, without the extra costs of
shipping. Restaurants, shopping malls, theatres, and sporting events are all
just outside your door with a downtown condo, so it's easy to see why
the young professional would prefer the luxuries of a condominium.
Another feature that lends itself well to a young professional on the go is
the amenities provided in condos. Most condos offer the basics like laundry,
parking, and storage, but there are also those with gyms, recreational rooms,
theatres, and/or pools. Another attractive feature of condos when compared
to houses is the lack of maintenance. With no yard work to do and no external
home repairs to worry about, condos allow the hard-working young professional
more time during the workday and greater relaxation during the days off.
The condo life isn't for everyone, obviously. There are many people who
still prefer to take out a mortgage and enjoy the peace and quiet of their own home. For those young guns on the go, however,
that love the city nightlife and enjoy all the luxuries and pleasures of the
urban lifestyle, there's nothing quite like calling a condo home. Someday
they too may desire the space and freedom that owning your own home provides,
but when they move on, another up-and-coming young professional will take their place.
