What to look for in a Yorkville Condo

When looking for a Yorkville condo to buy or let it there are a lot of things to consider, some of which are less obvious and you may forget to check or ask about at first.

For a start apart from the <a href=”http://www.searchlocalcondos.com/”>condo</a> itself what else do you get use of such as hallways, elevators and maybe even laundry facilities, will you have to pay a ground rent or other costs towards communal facilities? These may also include heating, which can be better value than having your own heating system.

How thick are the walls and floors or ceilings: the extent to which sound travels between apartments varies between blocks based on their age and construction. Try tapping on walls and ideally visit potential properties on weekends or evenings when there will be people about to give you an idea how noisy they may be.

Rooms often look smaller once they have furniture in so be careful if viewing an empty property and compare floor sizes to what you currently have to give you a better idea and to make sure that you will be able to fit everything in. Think about wall space as well as floor space as some layouts, including open plan as well as condos with lots of windows, may have less wall space: which may mean that you have nothing to put some furniture against.
