5 Advantages to Apartment Living

Thinking of downsizing or getting a foot on the property ladder? An apartment might be for you.

Location:

If the eclectic and busy life of the city is something you enjoy, then buying an apartment most definitely suits you. Apartments are usually close to transport hubs, parks, & fantastic entertainment opportunities.

 

Lifestyle:

Apartment buildings can come complete with terraces, gyms, & swimming pools. Sometimes these can affect the cost of an apartment though. These shared amenities can provide a nice source of apartment community & activities.

 

Security & Maintenance:

If you travel a lot for work, or leave to go visit family for a while, knowing all of your valuables are safely stowed away in a secure building can provide peace of mind. In the same vein, no more lawns to mow or houses to paint! Sure, body corp fees are a turn off, but house maintenance is not light on the wallet either.

 

Affordable:

Yes, technically you do pay more per square metre of housing, but apartments and houses differ entirely by location and land. A standalone house of 100 sq. metres in an inner city suburb  on 500sq. metres of land is going to be much more expensive than a 100 sq. metre apartment downtown.

 

Parking:

The bane of every city is the parking. In an ideal world, our public transport systems would be able to take you from a to b in an efficient manner all around a city and its fringes. Our cities don’t have this luxury, so most apartments come with carparks. A bonus of these is that they are in a secure, locked facility only accessible by card-key entry. By contrast, houses typically have vast more options for parking, but are less secure than an apartment block.
