Many buyers are looking for stylish Edmonton condominiums for their next real estate deal. There are a number of
important features that buyers should look for when shopping for stylish urban condos to make sure that they are
getting a great deal and that their purchase will retain its resale value.

Eco-Friendly Features

One of the most important things to look for when shopping for Edmonton condos is how environmentally-responsible
the builder has been. Look for condos that use eco-friendly building supplies and that have energy-saving features built
into each unit. Shop for condos that make use of the natural light available with large windows in the living spaces. In
the kitchen and laundry room, look for Energy Star appliances to help reduce their impact on the planet. In the
bathrooms, look for dual flush toilets and low-flow shower heads.

Urban Modern Finishes

It is also important to look for Edmonton condominiums that have urban modern finishes used throughout the unit.
These details can really make a house feel more like a home, and help to ensure that the unit will maintain its value
throughout the years. Look for finishes such as hardwood or laminate flooring, natural countertop options such as
quartz or granite and stainless steel appliances to give it the modern, high-end feeling that many homeowners are
looking for.

Heated Underground Parking

Any Canadian will easily understand why heated underground parking is so important when shopping for Edmonton
condos. The winters in Edmonton can be extremely cold, making it very uncomfortable to go back and forth from a
vehicle. Vehicles themselves can also freeze up in the extreme temperatures, meaning that heated parking facilities are
an absolute necessity for homeowners.

Open Air Balconies

Another must-have item for any Edmonton condo owner is an open air balcony. Condo owners have obviously chosen to
live in a home without a yard, but it is still very important to have some private outdoor space. Yards can be extremely
time-consuming with the maintenance and landscaping issues that come with them, but open air balconies are simply a
place to kick back and relax. Many condo owners also like having the area to be able to grill outdoors in the warm
summer months.

Noncombustible Construction
Safety should be first on the list of anyone shopping for Edmonton condominiums. Look for a complex that is made up of
noncombustible materials such as steel. Fires can spread extremely quickly from unit to unit when they are made of
flammable materials such as wood. Ask the builder what sorts of fire safety precautions were put into place during the
construction process to safeguard your investment, your belongings and your life.

Shopping for a home can be an extremely exciting and overwhelming time in a person’s life. Make sure that the house
you buy becomes a home that you love year after year by keeping your mind on the bigger picture. Look for these
features to ensure that your home’s resale value is retained for years to come.
