If you are someone thinking about purchasing a new condo, below is a list of the best condo buying tips to follow during your search of your dream condo.

1. Location, location, location. If a condo it is located far away from your work or from a transit station then you will need to be prepared to add a commuter coast to your budget. Make sure your condo is near shopping malls, churches, schools and business centers for your convenience.

2. Safe neighborhood. Check out the neighborhood and decide if it is safe to live in. Some condo communities even offer added security like a gated community and security guards. Also check out the traffic in the area, if noise levels are higher you may want to consider a different location.

3. Style. Decide before hand if you prefer a high rise, mid size or low. Swanky high rises cost more as they are mostly located within a city.
