Condominiums, alternatively known as condo units, are a great option for people who are interested in owning an economic but at the same time a convenient dwelling place that offers all the benefits of staying in a conventional home.


One of the prime differences between a condo and an ordinary home is that a condo unit does not include individual ownership of a piece of land. In other words, a condo is part of a larger complex, and a condo owner has complete ownership over their individual unit, while other areas of the complex as well as the land on which it is situated is owned in common by all homeowners. Additionally, facilities available within the condominium complex such as elevators, pools, hallways, club houses, and fitness facilities have shared ownership.


A condo owner is also required to follow the rules and regulations put forward by the condominium association.


Depending upon the tastes and budget of people, different types of condominium units are now available. Luxury condo complexes are a popular type of development in the area of Asheville, NC. Apart from comfortable as well as well-appointed individual units coupled with balconies or sun decks, luxury complexes mostly come with a complete array of facilities such as valet parking, round the clock security services, on-site pools, excellent spa and fitness facilities, meeting and banquet rooms, and conference centers.


Another popular type of condo complex is the low-rise condominium, which are akin to traditional edifices and contain only two to five floors. Al though built in traditional style this type of condominium is usually complete with all facilities that a modern condominium complex offers.


Different types of condo complexes also include townhouses, alternatively known as town homes, which is more or less like a single detached home and with features such as enclosed patios, fireplaces, and roof decks.


Other popular types of condominium complexes are loft condo units with large windows and high ceilings, and co-op, which is quite different from other types of condo units.


No matter the type, living in a condo provides a host of benefits. A prime benefit of a condo unit is that it is economically smart when compared to other typical housing options. Another key benefit of living in a condo is that owners need to only clean their individual units. Common areas like garden, lobby, and hallways are maintained by a management company.


Other obvious benefits of living in a condominium complex include low maintenance, safety and the opportunity to live within a unique community. For instance, there are condominium complexes that are especially designed to cater to the requirements of retirement communities.


Above all, buying a condo unit serves as an excellent long-term investment. It's even better to invest in a new condo complex, as it will be built using the most sophisticated technologies, thereby ensuring durability and low maintenance.

The River Condos of Asheville are located on the French Broad River and represent the best in Asheville real estate. Their Asheville condos are built using green building concepts and recycled materials.
