Reasons to Choose a Condo Over a House

Real Estate

A large number of people are choosing to live in a condo rather than living in a traditional family home. If you hate the upkeep a traditional house needs like mowing the yard, garden chores, and all the everyday maintenance, a West Village condo just might be what you are looking for. There are also people who, because of their career paths, do not have the time necessary to maintain a house and a lot.

What Some Other Reasons and Benefits?

  • Buying a condo in the West Village at The Shephard is an extremely sound investment. If you want to avoid the maintenance of a home, you could always rent an apartment, but why waste money on a place you do not own. Purchasing a condo means that you own where you live with all the convenience of apartment living.
  • Living in a condo also means that you receive all the amenities that the building offers. At The Shephard, residents have use of the building garden, which is right off the lobby which is guarded around the clock. You can relax with a book in the library. At the spa, you can take a steam in gender-specific rooms. The gym also includes a climbing wall and half-court basketball court. There is even a rec room for residents of all ages with vintage arcade games.
  • Compared to a home which has 3,000 square feet, whose cost can be prohibitive, a condo with the same square footage can be well within reach.
  • When you purchase a condo, you can open your social circle by moving into a tightknit community. You may find new friends with similar tastes and outlooks. Many people who live at The Shephard live the same lifestyle that you do.

The Shephard is an elegant graceful building that offers views of the Statue of Liberty on its upper floors and views of the tree-lined streets of the West Village on the lower.
