Barrie Condominiums: Find the Right Condo For You!

You want to own a condominium in Barrie—you’ve decided that much. But you’ve still have a lot of decisions and factors to consider before you’re done shopping. Handing your wish-list over to a Barrie Condo Realtor is the fastest way to get exactly what you’re looking for.

Your first, and maybe, biggest consideration is location. Locking down exactly where you want to be is a quick way to shortlist your options.

“Maybe you just like the look and feel of some neighborhoods,” said Stephanie Adams of the Barrie Condo Team.

“Or maybe you want to be on, or close to, the waterfront. Or maybe you’re a commuter who needs to be close to Highway 400.  These are all big factors.”

Now let’s take a look at floor plans. Everyone has different architectural and functional needs, which is why most waterfront condos in Barrie have on average 6-8 different unit types, and the previous owners may have chosen different upgrade options.  This provides a lot of choice.

If you’ve found the building and the suite you like, don’t forget to ask your Realtor if the unit’s view of the lake and/or city is a factor in the price. Panoramic views are big selling features for most condos, but if it’s not a deal-breaker for you, perhaps you can get a better price on a more modest view.

Don’t forget to factor in parking. If you have more than one vehicle, make sure your building can accommodate your needs.  But bare in mind, a lot of people choose a condo in a central location so they can walk to more amenities and cut down to one car.

Also take a close look at the community that each condo offers. You may prefer a building with regular social events or parties.
