My name is Nesbitt Realty. I'm a local Realtor and I work hard everyday in and around condominiums in Alexandria. 205 Yoakum Pkwy #518 is appears to be a smart purchase for many reasons. But I'm not recommending you buy this property, or any particular condo in The City of Alexandria. At least, not until I know your goals. It's more important to me that we find the right condo for you.
My goal as a Realtor is to help you figure your concerns, so that you can find the best condo for you. Of the top of your head, what's most important to you?
There are a lot of things to consider. For example:
- What type of heating system do you prefer? Electric? Maybe you like natural gas or the warmth of an oil furnace? The most typical heating system in this area is forced air.
- Do you like masonry condos? Do you prefer brick or siding? What type of siding?
- Do you want upgraded features? Do you like SS appliances, granite counters, dual pane windows? Do you want a “green” home? Do you prefer a handyman special?
- Do you need a garage? Almost one quarter of the condominiums in this condominium community have a garage.
Most condominiums have amenities you won’t find on a similarly priced single family residence. A typical condo has a pool, a work-out room, and party room. Typically all or some of the exterior maintenance and lawn care is provided by the condo association. Many condos have utilities included in the price of the condo fee. These and many other luxuries are standard in a condominium community but are beyond the reach of those who reside in single family homes. In short, condo owners choose condo life because they love life and they don’t want to be bogged down with maintaining a lawn or cleaning gutters. They want to walk out the back door and enjoy a dip in the pool while the other guy is spending time writing checks to pay his utilities.
