The Globe and Mail has released a new report showing that more women are buying condos than ever before. In some cities the statistics are up as much as 1/3 and developers are taking note. New units are being tailored for both the male and the female population of condo dwellers.
Developers are now focusing more of their attention on the following features that are the most important to the average woman.
Safe location - They like the thought of having a concierge that is overlooking a building that is situated in a safe part of town.
Fitness center - A lot of women are looking for a condo building that includes a gym as an amenity.
Enough storage space - Walk-in closets are a big feature for many women that don't want to have to store their clothes and other personal items in a cramped closet space.
Single young women are taking up more and more of the condo buying population these days. According to the report, safety is even more important than the square footage of the condo itself.
