Parking does matter in addition in to price, location and condition. Most buyers when they come home from a day’s work or out doing errands that there is a nearby parking spot waiting from them, if their unit does not have a garage. In most cases, parking is pretty close by. Having parking far away can be a pain for you, but then is good exercise. I have seen some properties in the area where there is a large slope up or down the unit.
Guest parking is important to most buyers looking for a condo in the Danbury area. Having a space where visitors to park safely, without danger of being towed,can weigh into buyers decisions whether they decide they want to purchase your place or not.
Granted, you might not care about parking , but the next buyer might see issues with you. As a condo owner, there is generally nothing that you can do to change the parking situation.With properties that have a large slope, your condo may miss a good portion of the buyers (couples or singles with young children & seniors). When it is time to sell your property, the buyer for your home is most likely going to be someone like you who wants to live the neighborhood who finds the home just perfect for them.Also price can be a factor to, in terms of purchase price and monthly homeowner association dues .For properties that are parking challenged, you may be able to purchase the property for a less than other units in the area, but you do make it up on the back end when its time to sell.
Look over your rules. Typically parking rules include things like you can only use your assigned space, can’t park on the street, guest space use and you’re not used to be working on your car . Often, additional regulations restrict unregistered or cars and inoperable vehicles, the use of spaces for cars only and parking of recreational vehicles .
