My hubby and I are looking to buy our first home/condo. We have found a great condo that we both really like in Whalers cove in Babylon Village. Any feedback on that complex??
My family thinks this is a bad investment because a house appreciates much more than a condo. Is this true?
How hard to sell a condo in Babylon village than a house? If we bought a house he would have to work a second job and the house would need work.
Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks!
I have a friend who lives in that development. I love his place and he loves it there as well. So as far as I know, no complaints.
There are advantages and disadvantages to both houses and condos. A house would probably appreciate more than a condo, yeah, but a condo would not depreciate...generally only cars do that. Definitely check it out...I love Whalers Cove and you should too! I would also wager property taxes on condos are a lot less than houses. It's really about what you prefer.
It's also a really close walk to Babylon Village which is a great place for some dinner & drinkeroos.
