For on-the-go professionals, sometimes a lot of house isn't the right answer to an individual's needs. Many people are finding that condominiums offer the best of both the apartment and the homeowner worlds. 
The Edmonton Journal reports that condos are becoming the new popular option for first-time homebuyers. As a result, a number of duplexes and condos are beginning to offer high-quality finishes to attract potential buyers. ReidBuilt Homes and Sterling Homes are two companies in Edmonton, Canada, that are offering homebuyers exceptional luxury features in their condos.
Granite countertops, high-end, stainless steel appliances and hardwood floors are just a few of the characteristics that many people are including in their wish list. However, potential buyers are not just being attracted by the cosmetic finishes included in these properties. Many people are also interested in the various sustainability measures the companies have also included to help homeowners keep energy use down. 
Radiant floor heating has been included in properties developed by both companies. The Edmonton Journal reports that the eco-friendly solution is often highly sought after by homeowners or a unexpected perk that they quickly express joy over once discovering. In the cold Canadian winter weather, a radiant floor heating system is often a comfort to many homeowners. 
The energy-efficient option uses less resources to provide warmth and comfort to a homeowner and his or her guests. The heat radiates throughout the condo through the floorboards by a process called convection. This allows the rooms included within the home to all receive an equal amount of warmth, so that no hot or cold spots are created to disrupt an individual's ability to relax.
