Just as there are many factors that make up the market price of a house, there are many things that factor into the price of a condo. Building amenities, floor height, views, and interior finishes all factor into the price of a condo. You have heard the saying in real estate “location, location, location”, and condominiums are no different. The locations of the buildings within downtown, and the location of the unit within the building, are also factors that will ultimately affect the list price.
Remember: Buyers are not just purchasing a unit in a hi-rise, they are buying convenience. Is Near Town Lake? the Warehouse District? the office? Convenience is defined by the Buyer.
Location, location, location is true! And, when considering the price of a condo, make sure to take into consideration the HOA fees and what they include. If they include electricity and hot water, for example, you may not have much of a utility bill. Consider both the HOA fees and reduced bills for what you’ll owe each month!
