Where Do I Park at a Condo? Daytona Beach area Condo Parking Options

With so many condos along the river and beaches of our Central Florida coast, a question that is often asked is, “Where do I park my car at a condo?” As condominiums can house hundreds of households, with each potentially having one or more automobiles, the conundrum of condo parking is an important one to consider prior to a purchase. There are four general options for parking at condos in the Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach and New Smyrna Beach area. Below we will explore these parking arrangements to help with your condo search.

Underground Garage

This is an open parking garage that is built beneath the condominium where residents can drive into an assigned, or sometimes deeded , parking space. These garages generally are gated and feature secure access for owners. In most cases for the larger condo buildings, these garages are only large enough to accommodate one parking space per unit. For those with second vehicles, or for guest and overflow parking, there is typically some ground level, uncovered parking spaces that are open on a first-come, first-served basis.

Drive to Your Floor

There are just a couple of condos in Daytona Beach Shores and Ponce Inlet that have this unique, spiral garage that allows you to drive up to your floor and park on the same level as your condo unit. This type of garage is convenient for unloading groceries and other items from your vehicle, and in general, may shorten your walk from the car to the front door of your condo.

Traditional Garage

In some cases these garages are in a strip, and are open to the other garages, whereas others have full, walled privacy. Another thing to note is that these private garages can be in high demand, and often add a premium to the property value if included with the condo. Some condo buildings require an additional monthly fee for those who own these private garages as well.

Ask about condo buildings like Bellair or Curran Shores that feature the opportunity to own a condo with a private, traditional garage.

Lot or Street Parking

In smaller condo buildings, or as overflow for larger condo communities, lot or street parking may be the only parking option. With the effect on vehicles by beachside elements - salt, sand, and sun - this is typically the least preferred option for parking by condo owners.

Condo parking options can vary greatly, so if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We look forward to assisting you with your condo purchase or sale.
