With these properties, the upkeep of the shared amenities such as the pool, gym, and tennis courts is taken care of, along with the building’s exterior maintenance and the landscaping of the grounds. This means you’ll spend less time looking after your property, and more time enjoying it.

Prices start around $250,000 and can go into the mid $400,000's for varying sizes of condos.
