The New Condo We Call Home

When my wife and I decided to move back to where we used to live, we knew that we wanted to look at St Lawrence Market condos. We had lived in a house there before, but we just did not have the time or energy to take care of it properly. I am not talking about the interior, because we handle that just fine. However, owning a house requires a lot of maintenance on the property itself, and we just did not want that this time around. We knew that a condo was in our best interest, and we were quite pleased with the condos that are available in the area we were looking at.

Though it is just the two of us, we still wanted at least a four bedroom condo. We have three children, and we often have get togethers at least a few times a year. We wanted them to each feel comfortable with their own rooms. If they had to stay at a hotel, it would kind of defeat the purpose of having these get togethers in the first place They each have children of their own, but we knew they would enjoy having campouts in the living or dining rooms.

We looked at several different condos, and it was the fifth one that really spoke to us. It has six bedrooms and seven baths, which might seem excessive to some since the kids are not always here. We can afford it though, and it would mean that the times they are here would be spent in comfort, and that is really all that matters. We also like that it has a library, and even plenty of on street parking. We made an offer on it, which was accepted almost immediately, and now we call it home!
