Condos for Sale in the San Antonio Area
What if you LOVE the idea of owning your own space, but don’t feel the draw of a classic single-family home? If you find yourself in this situation, condo ownership may be for you. In fact, many Alamo City residents, from young professionals to retirees and everything in between, have started snatching up San Antonio condos due to all the benefits they offer.
A viable option for many, condos offer a hybrid between apartment living and home ownership and are popular among many homebuyers for several reasons:
- The average condo costs less than the average single-family home. According to the San Antonio Board of Realtors, in January 2016, the average sale price of a condo in San Antonio was $181,131 compared to $224,527 for a single-family home.
- Condominiums require less maintenance than a single-family home. The common property of a condo building is usually maintained by the condo association, which means you don’t own the responsibility of taking care of landscaping, pools, stairs, roofing, etc.
- Many condo complexes offer amenities like gyms and pools that are attractive to their owners.
So, what is the difference between an apartment and a condo? While a condo complex has units that can be purchased and owned individually, an apartment complex is owned by one entity, either a person or a company, who maintains the residency of the all the rental units, generally through charging rent.
Often, condos resemble apartments in building style, however, this is not always the case! Some condos offer the best of both worlds...villa-style or multi-style living with condominium-level ownership. From La Cantera to Alamo Heights, San Antonio condos can be found throughout the city and run the gamut in both style and price.
