Condominium living has become increasingly popular. Condominiums live like single-family homes but require much less maintenance; it’s no wonder so many individuals are opting for them over standalone properties. Before purchasing a luxury condominium, here are five important things to look for before making a final decision:
Location, location, location
You’ve heard it before, and we’ll say it again, it’s all about location, location, location. Before putting a down payment on a condo, be sure that it’s in the right location in regard to your hobbies and interests. If you like the beach, don’t pick a condo in the middle of a city. If you like to fish, definitely don’t pick a condo 50-miles inland. Not to mention, down the road you may decide to sell this condo. Consider condominiums that are in an area that’s seen as up-and-coming. It may prove to be profitable for you in the future, should you decide to sell.
Genova is ideally located in the heart of Estero, Florida. In this 25-square-mile city, you’re intimately close to the famed Gulf of Mexico beaches, shopping at Coconut Point or Miromar Outlets, sporting arenas like Hertz Arena or Hammond Stadium, Estero Community Park and you’re near art and cultural venues like Barbara B. Mann or Artis-Naples. However you enjoy spending your spare time, Genova’s convenient location in Estero has something for everyone.
When you’re looking at potential luxury condominiums, take a close look at its amenities. If a community is marketing itself as luxury, its amenities should be as well. Is there a resort-style pool and fitness center? What additional offerings does the clubhouse have? What can you do in your spare time in your community? Are there recreation courts for play? Depending how close the condo is to local shops, restaurants and centers for the arts, you’ll want to be sure to consider the location as an amenity.
Genova offers just about all the amenities you’d ever want and then some, which are all included with the purchase of your new home. The clubhouse, with its full-time general manager and maintenance staff, offers social gathering rooms including an expansive community room with large-screen television and lounge seating, games tables and hospitality prep kitchen. The resort-style pool overlooks the glistening waters of the lake while the sundeck has fabulous views of Genova’s water features and Southwest Florida’s famed sunsets. Additional amenities include a covered 25-meter lap pool, state-of-the-art fitness center with aerobic studio, bocce courts, community events and residents’ clubs, off-site events and close proximity to Estero Community Park.
One thing you should not have to fight for in a luxury condominium community is parking. When looking at a condominium, confirm that there is private, under-cover parking before purchasing. If there isn’t private parking, then it isn’t luxury!
Each residence at Genova is allotted a private two-car garage. There is additional undercover parking and guest parking available throughout the community.
Your furry friend deserves to live a luxurious life too. If life wouldn’t be complete without them, then a luxury condominium that does not allow pets should be a deal breaker, especially if you’re purchasing and not renting the space. Genova is within walking distance of Estero Community Park. Here you’ll find the K-9 Corral Dog Park which features two off-lead play areas for small/shy and large dogs. There’s also water and shower stations for our furry friends to use while or after they exercise and socialize. After visiting the dog park, you and your pet can cool down with a long walk around any one of the park’s large lakes.
Unfortunately, many luxury communities include hidden fees. While the price may initially seem very attractive, the community may charge additional feels such as equity fees, club fees and/or CDD taxes. Ask about potential hidden fees and HOA fees before making any final decisions on your luxury condo. At Genova, you’ll never have to worry about being blindsided by hidden fees. Here, there are no equity fees, club fees or CDD tax. Ever.
