Tips for Condo Safety

With urban living constantly attracting more people, many find themselves asking ‘are condos safe?”, 

This housing choice enables families to embrace the convenience and adventure of city living. 

Condos come with less maintenance and costs than traditional single-family homes and open the door to tight-knit communities, incredible amenities, and easy access to anything your family may need.

General Safety Information for Condos

Safety is naturally one of the utmost concerns when it comes to choosing where to raise a family.

When it comes to condo safety, there are many measures condo developers set in place to provide residents security and peace of mind.

Regardless of the condo you’re considering you can expect basic safety features, including controlled access to all exterior doors and common areas, adequate lighting and landscape maintenance, a well-thought-out disaster plan, and appropriate door and window locks in all units.

Many luxury condo buildings also boast increased security offerings for residents. It is not uncommon for buildings to invest in trained security guards or an on-site building manager to track security issues and ensure timely repair to building issues.

You can also find many condo buildings complete with pre-wired burglar alarms to monitor common areas and individual units at all times.

Knowing Your Neighbors

The tight-knit community that condos create draws many families to this style of home. 

Living close to your neighbors makes it easier to get to know one another and look out for each other’s children and families. 

Sharing amenities and common space, such as parks and pools, provides even more opportunities to connect with other families living around you.
