Briarwood Condos Are an Opportunity for Ownership

At Briarwood Realty, we are never surprised when we see renters turn into buyers in our neighborhood. That’s where Briarwood condos enter the picture. If you are thinking about buying in Briarwood, it’s time to see what condos bring to the table.

Is It a Condo or an Apartment?

Sometimes it’s hard to tell if you are looking at a condo or an apartment. Here are some key differences between the two:

  • Condos equal ownership. If you purchase a condo, you’ll own a piece of coveted real estate in Briarwood. If you rent, you’ll get the pleasure of living here without the permanence.
  • Condos equal commitment. If you are looking at Briarwood condos, chances are you plan to stick around for a while. Condos are a great option if you are considering putting down roots in Briarwood.
  • You can personalize a condo. While some condos come with restrictions, you generally have more freedom to complete renovations on your interior space compared to an apartment.

Amenities From A To Z

It’s no secret that certain amenities are precious to city dwellers. Briarwood condos tend to offer more amenities than their apartment counterparts. Here are a few special features that you might see during your condo search:
Fitness facilities.

  • Parking.
  • Private terraces.
  • A doorman.
  • Common green spaces.
  • Playgrounds.
  • Environmentally-friendly appliances, water fixtures and lighting.

What About Maintenance?

Most Briarwood condos include building and common area maintenance. Of course, all residents in the building pay for this service. There’s no opting out of your monthly maintenance fee, so you might as well make it a permanent line item in your budget. For many condo owners, this fee is a small price to pay to take maintenance tasks off of their hands.

Since you own your unit, you will probably be responsible for maintenance and repairs to the interior. If you are interested in a particular condo, check the association’s bylaws for the specifics.
