First Floor Master
Homes with the master suite on the first floor have been gaining in popularity as people realize just how convenient it is. It provides greater privacy for you when your children are on the 2nd floor. And when the kids are gone, a home with a first floor master suite allows you to remain in your home without having to go up the stairs should it become more difficult to navigate steps. When you have guests, they have more privacy when they’re on their own floor. If you did decide to move, homes with first floor master suites are the most sought-after floor plan in a 2 story home, because they’re perfect for those with mobility issues, or empty nesters who no longer need to be on the same floor as their small children. A home with a first floor master suite will ultimately increase the resale value of your home.

Condos come with many benefits but, they aren't for everyone. Whether you should buy a condo comes down to where you are in life and your preferences. One of the primary advantages of living in a condo is that there are no exterior maintenance responsibilities. While homeowners are busy mowing their lawns, trimming hedges, and cleaning gutters condo owners are busy hanging out at the pool, taking trips, or just relaxing! Another benefit for those who are social butterflies is condos are much closer in proximity to one another than single family homes. There are also more units in a given area. This creates a level of closeness that doesn’t exist in large subdivisions. Since condos tend to attract people of similar backgrounds and interests, there’s a greater likelihood of co-mingling.
