Condominium life is finally being recognized as a viable choice for all types of lifestyle arrangements, including raising children. Condo buildings and townhouses help create communities that can spawn more face-to-face opportunities, such as interaction among schoolmates, like-minded young parents or retired seniors. For some, an efficiently spaced condo can actually create closer family ties than a sprawling detached home, where individuals frequently retreat to isolated spaces.
In fact, condos allow families to age together in close proximity. In addition, condos require minimal maintenance freeing valuable time to spend with family. Of course, choosing a family condo requires the same due diligence as any home purchase, especially when seeking proximity to schools, community centres, parkland, etc., or amenities such as a swimming pool and other facilities.
