There are largely two types of condos in downtown San Diego. There are type A which offers you a nice place to live and maybe a doorman, then there is type B, which offers you a lifestyle. A lot of people make the distinction between Type A and Type B based on costs but they are sorely amiss to base their living decisions solely on a dollar sign. Many buyers do not look past the budget to see what it is exactly that they get for the money that they invest. Once you do the math you can see how buying a lifestyle even at a bit higher cost is far more valuable than buying a Type A that basically offers you a living space and not much more.
Balancing the Choices
Most buyers are faced with some tough decisions when it comes to buying a condo. There are three key features that you should consider that goes way above and beyond budget:
- Where do you want to live (location)? Do you want to live on the water and take advantage of a water front lifestyle? Do you want to live blocks and blocks away from the waterfront action with all the great restaurants, shops and nightlife?
- What amenities are important to you? A pool with poolside cabanas and open access to an indoor lounge area? How about shared boat access? Full luxury concierge services?
- Work, live and play all within steps of your private residence!
Budget is key but budget should never be confused with overall value. You can choose a complete lifestyle where your private residence is enhanced by some of the finest amenities in the city at Pacific Gate. It is the building that was built for the luxury lifestyle you crave.
