Garden Unit Condos in ChicagoIf you’re in the market for a new condo you may want to consider a garden unit. That’s because there are plenty of pros when it comes to buying a garden unit condo.

To begin with, a garden unit is located on the ground floor or slightly below street level, with easy access to a backyard garden or patio. They sometimes also offer a small front porch.

The accessibility also means you won’t have to contend with stairs. Whether stocking up on weekly groceries or more easily moving in furniture, a garden unit is the way to go.

This is ideal, too, if you have a pet that needs to go for daily walks. If you work untraditional hours, you won’t have to worry about disturbing others when you leave and return home. 

Another good reason to buy a garden unit condo has to do with staying on a budget. Garden units are sometimes less expensive, plus they’re more energy efficient. Heat rises, so a ground level condo typically stays cooler in the summer.
