apartment living

When it comes to finding the right home for you, bigger does not always mean better. For many Melbournians, high-rise living can tick all the boxes, and apartments are fast becoming the first choice for many new home buyers.

From facilitating a low maintenance lifestyle to granting access to a variety of enviable amenities, apartment buildings can provide a range of features that a home in the suburbs simply can’t match. Here are just some of the many benefits that apartment living can offer.

Premium location
For most apartments, location truly is key, and as a resident, you are likely to find yourself with access to everything you could possibly need within only a short distance.

Excellent lifestyle
Being so close to all that the city has to offer, apartment dwellers tend to enjoy vibrant lifestyle options with numerous restaurants, cafes, bars, and social facilities only a stone's throw away.

Lower cost
In most cases, apartment living costs significantly less in terms of mortgage or rent payments than other homes in the same area, and due to the smaller size of the space, utility bills tend to be lower too.

Shared expenses
As well as this, those who live in apartments can also take advantage of a number shared maintenance expenses such as gardening, amenities and shared spaces.

Less responsibility
While sharing the cost of maintaining exteriors and shared spaces may save you cash, having less responsibility around the general upkeep also saves you a great deal of time and stress.

Easy to clean
Due to the smaller size of apartments, cleaning tends to become a considerably less daunting task and take up far less of your time.

Added security
Most apartment buildings invest in strong security systems, and with neighbours only a short distance away, apartments are among some of the most secure living options available.

Impressive amenities
From pools and gyms to rooftop gardens, many apartments offer an impressive range of amenities for residents to enjoy as they please.

Improved sustainability
With less storage space than larger homes, those living in apartments are likely to be more conscious about what they bring in and cut down on unnecessary clutter. As well as this heating and cooling require far less gas and electricity expenditure, which is great news for the environment and your hip pocket.

Friendly community
Living in close proximity and sharing the same common areas, those who live in apartments are also more likely to form strong bonds and build new friendships with neighbours.
