Three Features You Need To Make A Condo Private

Jeffery Wright

Whether you live in a huge city and are looking for a quiet escape or are just a person who is big on privacy, you will want to make sure the condo you purchase is as private as possible. Condominiums typically mean that you have attached walls, or you have a lot of neighbors who live in very close proximity. This, however, does not mean that you can't make sure that your home is private as possible. 

Find a condo with a private entrance

One of the places where it is often difficult to find privacy is the entrance. Condominium entrances that lead to stairs and elevators will often have other residents around in and around the entrance area. This means that everyone can see when you and your guests enter your building. In order to avoid this issue, look for a condo that affords some level of privacy. A condo that has many elevators and several entrance doors will allow you to run into fewer people on your way to your home. If you can find a condo for sale that has a garage attached to the actual unit, you will be able to enter and exit through your own closed garage door. 

A long hallway

Running into your neighbors in the hall will become a common event. Depending on how many people are on your floor and your schedules, you may find yourself coming home and leaving home at the same time as your other people. If you want to make sure that no one can see inside of your apartment, look for a corner unit and make sure that the home has a long hallway. A long, narrow hallway will give you space to have a coat closet and a place to sit shoes without having to bring them into the apartment. They will also obscure the living areas of your home from neighbors, doormen, delivery persons, and any others who may be in the hallway. 

Privacy wall for your balcony

One of the best features of any condo is often the balcony. Balconies, whether in the middle of a large city or located in a rural area, offer beautiful sights. To be sure that your condo is completely private, install a privacy wall on the balcony. Privacy walls can often be made of glass that is not see through to provide you with plenty of sunlight but to block out any prying eyes. This will provide you with a backyard-type space to hang out and start or end your day in quiet harmony. 

Keep these tips in mind when looking at condos for sale.

buying a home from a distance

Searching for a home a hundred miles away from where I was previously living was hard. There was no way for us to take a trip up to see every single house that we found online to see first-hand the condition that it was in and how big it truly was. I had to find a real estate agent that I could trust to help us find several houses to make a trip up to see in a single day. I created this blog after going through the buying process and making the move. It is my hope that if you are buying a new home far from your current one, that the tips here will help to make it an easy transaction for you.
