Reasons to Buy a Condo in Philadelphia Instead of a House

Thinking of buying a luxury condo in Philadelphia? Here are a few reasons why a condo may be a better fit than investing in a row home.


In general, a condo is less expensive than investing in a home. It is a great option for for first-time owners or those looking to downsize. However, at The Residences at Dockside, owners certainly dont need to sacrifice space. Those considering our Philadelphia luxury condos will be impressed by the design and amenities that abound in their future home at Dockside. Plus, condos connect residents to a wider community of owners, allowing for social connections and fun events.


Enjoy the city and river views, as well as gated access, state-of-the-art security, a 24/7 concierge, and ample on-site gated parking, with reserved spaces, 3 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, and free visitor parking. Don’t forget about the heated indoor pool and hot tub, a state-of-the-art fitness center with cardio and resistance equipment, and a spacious clubroom for entertaining, which features a full catering kitchen, piano, large-screen TV and adjacent 4,100-square foot terrace overlooking the river.

Traditional homeowners can end up spending considerable time and money on maintenance and repairs—a significant consideration that draws many people to instead consider luxury condos. In a condo, the resident is only responsible for the interior of the home, while the association handles the outside. That means owners dont have to deal with seasonal chores like raking leaves and shoveling snow or cleaning out the gutters. Residents can enjoy their property without all the worries about its upkeep.


Finding an affordable home in a big city like Philadelphia can be a challenge. Condos are more plentiful and accessible because of their unique, space-saving format. Those considering buying a Philadelphia luxury condo will want to explore all that the local area has to offer.
