What does your perfect Boston condo for sale look like?

What does your perfect Boston condo for sale look like? Is it a condo overlooking the city or a Boston Seaport condo with water views?

If you ask 10 people about their idea of a perfect Boston downtown condo, you will likely get a decidedly different answer from each person. This is because what you desire and need is likely far different from what your friends or neighbor desires or needs.

If you want to convey your thoughts of your perfect Boston condo for sale tell your local Realtor so that he or she can find the home that’s right for you, consider the following:

• Boston condo for sale location –

Don’t just think in terms of geographical location, like the city or town. Instead, think beyond that. In other words, consider the location of the home. Do you want to live in the Seaport District or historic Beacon Hill?Do you want a private parking, or is outdoor living not that important to you? Is a family neighborhood important to you, or would you like a home that will afford you more privacy?

• The number of bedrooms and bathrooms –

In order to convey your needs and wants to your Realtor when searching for a new home, you should have a number in mind when it comes to bedrooms and bathrooms. For example, you may want to view Boston condos for sale that have at least two full bathrooms and at least three bedrooms. Understanding your family’s needs and conveying this information to your Realtor will likely save you a considerable amount of time looking at homes that simply don’t meet your needs.

• The home’s amenities –

Although amenities are generally thought of as “bonuses” as far as Boston condos go, there may be a number of amenities that you must have to satisfy your quest for the perfect home. For example, you may want to only view high rise condos with swimming pools, eat-in kitchens or master bathroom suites. You may want to make two lists for your realtor: one with a list of must-have amenities, and one that has your amenity wish list.
