Townhouse London Ontario, Town Home London Ontario

Townhouse condo , town home condo, freehold condo, aren’t they all the same? There seems to be some confusion about the differences between the three and to make the confusion more befuddled, if you google all three,  you will see what I mean.

Information Condos in Lonon Ontario

So, in London Ontario and area, Realtors, builders and lawyers generally define them as the following:

  • Townhouse Condo: Can be attached or detached, single floor or a two or three storey
  • Town Home Condo : Usually detached, more upscale and freehold or a general condominium corporation
  • Free Hold Condo: Detached, you own the land and are responsible for your roof, windows, doors and you pay a nominal fee to the condo corporation for road maintenance and common grounds.

Now, before anyone wants to nit pick me on the above descriptions , I have helped hundreds of buyers and sellers of condos in London and these 3 definitions worked for them. As well, at the end of the day, your lawyer and the status certificate of the condo corporation and the property you are buying or selling is defined quite clearly in all documents and ownership is defined.

A professional Realtor will have already verified that for you , but then, what do we know, we are out seeing condos every day!

                                           Where To Start?

Most start off by going to MLS and picking up all the real estate magazines they can get their hands on & going to open houses or model homes

Thats a good way to get a feel for price and style. But then what? What about certain condo rules, fees and financial stability of the condo corporation, amenities and other questions that should be very important for you to know?

With the so called information age being a window for knowledge, buyers and sellers of real estate should be aware of the misinformation age, be it embellished numbers, unbridled enthusiasm or false perceptions.

Always ask: “Is it true?”

One of the principles I have enforced in my career as a professional Realtor is that facts and the brutal truth about a value of a house, the market and the activity are in the best interests of our clients.

So, looking for a condo in London Ontario that is right for you should not be guess work or by luck. I know condos, where they are, the best locations, the better built ones,  the better managed ones, the best values, the safest ones, and buildings or complexes to stay away from.

Because of the volume of business I do, I also from time to time have listings that are not on MLS, it could be because they are doing last minute touch ups or my client knows I have many active buyers ready to buy if the right condo becomes available.
