Condos for sale Fairfield CT
A “condo,” short for condominium, is a type of property ownership, one where you own your particular unit while sharing ownership of the common areas with other owners.
Most people often think of a condo as a residence in a multi-unit building, but there is also such a thing as a detached condominium. Also called plan unit developments (PUDs), these are free-standing structures with a roof line that is no less than three feet from the adjoining homes. Like attached condos, these residential units can be gated and have condo association fees.
All condos come with shared common areas, such as garages, yards, gardens, recreation areas, and so on. The association, through the elected condo board, takes care of maintaining these areas, which means there’s little to no upkeep that needs to be done on the condo owners’ end. Condo owners only need to pay their dues to the condo board.
The majority of condos for sale in Connecticut have two to three bedrooms. In Fairfield County, you will find condos in or near downtown areas as well as right by the water.
Why buy a condo?
- Maintenance –The condo board functions as a HOA that takes care of the upkeep of common areas and home exteriors. Moreover, condos are generally smaller than single-family homes – their size and the absence of a yard makes them easier to maintain.
- Amenities – Condo buildings/complexes can give residents access to amenities like swimming pools, gyms, tennis courts, and more.
- Community – Many condo buildings and complexes foster a strong sense of community through organized social events and share amenities and the neighborly interactions they foster.
