When most people think of raising a large family, they imagine it happening in a sizable single-family home where space is not an issue. But, you may want to buy a condo where you do not have to worry about things such as maintaining the exterior part of the property or the landscape. If you also intend on having a large family, you will want to get creative when buying a large condo to make sure that you are able to raise a big family successfully.
1. Unit Location
To make it easy to raise a large family in a condo, you will want to think about the unit location as it can play a major role. For instance, buying a unit in a high-rise building on an upper floor will make it time-consuming for everyone in your family to enter and leave the condo. If you intend on owning pets such as dogs, taking them out for a walk or potty break will also take a long time.
Prioritizing a unit on the first or second floor is ideal because you will not have to worry about spending a long time just to get outside. Also, you will likely find it more enticing to use the community's amenities, such as a pool, hot tub, basketball court, dog park, and hiking trails.
With a large family, you may know that a condo will be somewhat limited in its ability to provide your family with exercise and entertainment over the years. A single-family home comes with a front yard and backyard in which kids and dogs can play around in comfortably. This makes it ideal to find a condo community with amenities such as a gym, basketball court, and pool.
With a community that you feel is safe and secure, you may feel confident letting your teenagers go out and play on their own knowing that they are safe to do so.
Finding a condo with enough bedrooms to provide all your kids with their own bedroom may be a challenge. However, you can get creative with this part of a condo by finding large enough bedrooms that you can easily split into two separate spaces that your children can share. This is one of the best alternatives to providing each child that you have with a room of their own.
