Many homebuyers dream of owning a beautiful, modern, luxury condo that is decked out with all of the amenities. For those fortunate folks who are actually poised to purchase such a home, however, careful consideration is essential. That’s why I’ve laid out the following tips to help you find a luxury condo that meets your needs as well as your desires.
Beginning your search
Sellers of luxury homes often prefer to maintain a low profile. As a result, their homes may go unlisted, making it difficult for you to find out when luxury condos become available for sale. Hiring an experienced realtor – who has the requisite connections – can give you a huge advantage when trying to track down luxury condos on the market.
Looking from above
While seeing photos of a luxury condo can give you a good idea of that home’s architectural style and key features, you’ll want to do a bit more research before you decide to attend an open house or book a showing. A good idea is to type the address of the home into Google Maps Street View as well as Google Earth. These tools will help you get a better picture of the condo’s potential view in regards to nearby buildings. Blocked views can overwhelmingly undermine the value of a luxury condo no matter how nice the interior may be. Photos you see in a listing may be misleading.
Considering the price tag, it should be a given that the luxury condo you’re looking for will have modern flooring, fixtures, and other features, as well as the most up-to-date appliances. However, to stay on the absolute cutting edge of home technology, you should choose a luxury condo that also comes equipped with an automated control system. Such a system will allow you to adjust blinds, turn lights on and off, adjust the temperature, and more, all from your smartphone.
A truly luxurious condo will have a beautiful, high-tech bathroom. Popular options include high-end jet tubs that can shoot sound waves through the water, as well as showers that can mimic falling rain. Electronic control panels on such tubs and showers make adjusting temperatures and other settings a breeze.
