05 Things to Consider When Buying an Apartment – Finding the Right Home

More and more people are discovering that apartments make for ideal homes especially in cosmopolitan cities where space for houses is not easy to find. Of course, while there are many apartments to choose from, not all will be worth your while; here is a list to help you find the right one!


Layout & Design

The layout and design of the apartment are very important aspects to consider; after all, this is going to be the place where you need to be at ease and can call "home". If possible, visit beforehand for a walkthrough so you get a feel for the place and can look into things like cross ventilation, natural light, available views, intelligent layouts, smart interiors, etc. Even if the complex is being developed, most times you will have the opportunity to visit a "show apartment" which will give you an idea of what the living space will be like when completed.


Central Location

This is a key aspect to consider and will go a long way to offer added convenience to your life be it for work or play. Ideally look to find an apartment that is centrally located in the city which will provide easy access to your workplace, commercial areas, schools, hospitals and transport hubs. It is important that you can also easily get to shopping malls, dining and entertainment venues as well as spaces for recreation like parks or beaches. Apartments in Colombo, Sri Lanka located in the Union Place area are an ideal example of this.


Smart Technology

In today's day and age, smart technology is very much a part of our lives and now is a part of apartment living too! Choosing apartments that come with smart tech like those offered at the up and coming TRI-ZEN residential development project, will provide greater convenience along with added security too. Such living spaces are equipped with Internet of Things (IoT) and feature home automation where everything from security, locks, household appliances, lighting and entertainment can be controlled by a smartphone or through voice activation.


Modern Facilities

When selecting an apartment, also look into what added facilities and amenities are on offer at the complex; this is also one of the many advantages of selecting an apartment over a house. Depending on the property, you can look forward to access to an onsite swimming pool, jogging track or state of the art gym, all ideal spots to begin or end your day. You may also get access to sports facilities like a badminton court and space for yoga and meditation too.


A Sense of Community

Having a sense of community is something that those residing in an apartment complex can enjoy and which also adds to a sense of security. Living at such a property will help you forge long-lasting friendships and will help one feel more secure as well. Even if you are planning to move into a new apartment complex you can get an idea of how community life will be encouraged; check to see if the property will have communal areas for relaxation and recreation, poolside lounges and games rooms.
