To help you in determining what’s most important to you, here are the Top 5 most important features to look for in Naples, Florida condos for sale.

Location

First and foremost, when purchasing a Florida property, the single-most important item is the location. Once you narrow down your ideal location, the rest will follow.

When it comes to Florida locations, the Naples area is unmatched. The city is known as the Golf Capital of the World and is ideally located along the Gulf of Mexico. The area is a perfect home for vacationers, golfers and beachgoers alike.

Community

Similar to choosing a location, it is important that you select a condominium that is in a community of your liking. This is a major decision of the utmost importance as you will be paying HOA fees, not to mention that  you will most likely become an active member of the community you now call home.

Many luxurious communities offer residents’ packages that will present buyers the opportunity to join private clubs and play on elegant golf courses around the area. Depending on the community that your condominium package offers, choose the best option for your family’s likings, hobbies and desires.

Building

Another top feature to look for when looking at Naples, Florida condos for sale is the building itself. Not only should you ask your real estate agent about the structural integrity of the building, but you should be familiar with the developer and builder behind the project.

After becoming familiar with the developer, you can then move on to achieving a better understanding of the building’s operational components, amenity packages, security and reputation. This is especially important when purchasing

pre-construction condominiums.

Residences / Floorplans

Whether you’re buying a large single-family home or a condominium, you most likely will choose a floorplan and layout that matches your family structure and your personal lifestyle.
