If you are looking to relocate to Clearwater, you’re probably thinking about what kind of properties are available that fit your life. Are you downsizing? Upsizing? Looking for a change or some of the same in a different location?
Condominiums are one type of home you may consider. If you own a condo you own your own unit, but the common areas belong to the condo association. You will be responsible to pay fees to the association to help with upkeep, and if any improvements need to be made to the common areas, all owners are responsible to help pay for it. While a condo can be as small as a few units, most people think of larger apartment like buildings with amenities like pools, gyms, tennis courts and more.
Multi-Unit Properties are another type of property. This could be something like a 2 unit or multiple unit property where the owner lives in one unit and rents out the others. It is a great way to live in a property or an area that may be higher than you could afford on your own, because you pay your mortgage with the rental payments. It’s also a great way to have a vacation home for yourself, but pay for it with the rental from the other units.
Townhouses are another common form of home to start out in or downsize to. A townhome is different from a condo because the townhome owner owns the home and the property in front of and behind it. Townhomes are usually a few units and may have common areas supported by a homeowners association.
Single-Family Residences may be what you are moving from. And it may be what you are looking to move to. They come in all sizes, so whether up or downsizing, a single family home could fit the bill. Single family homes are stand-alone single dwellings where the owner owns the building and all the surrounding land. Clearwater has some beautiful waterfront single family homes.
Clearwater has all these kinds of homes, so if you are thinking of relocating, call a Realtor to discuss what you may want in a home. Come down and visit to tour all or some of these types of homes. Who knows, you may find you want something you never thought you would!
