05 Steps for Selecting Your Dream Apartment – Finding the Perfect Home

Dreaming of finding the ideal apartment which you can make a home for you and your partner or to start a family? Don't put off your search because you never know what golden opportunities you may miss! When it comes to selecting the right apartment, here are some key things to consider.


Consider the Location

Even before checking out what the living space has to offer, look to see where the property is located. The great thing about apartments in the city is that they can be found in prime locales offering easy access to offices, schools, hospitals, banks, supermarkets and transport services. Check to see if the apartment is in a central location and consider other factors too; this includes proximity to malls and retails hubs, parks for recreation and relaxation, cinemas, restaurants, bars, theatres and other such venues for leisure and entertainment.


Go Through the Layout

Remember to also check the layout and size of the apartment and see if it matches what you have in mind; this can not only include the living spaces but also aspects such as natural lighting and the views. Some properties that are being built newly will have show apartments or let you take a virtual tour of what it has to offer. See if one, two or three-bedroom apartments are available and if they can accommodate all your needs be it for work, rest or play.


See What Makes It Stand Out

Those moving into new apartments, in particular, should see what distinguishing features it has that will make it stand out above the rest. For example, in addition to a central location and ideal layout, up and coming modern apartments including those found at properties like TRI-ZEN are equipped with smart technology. Such living spaces offer a whole lot more convenience, safety and will help you stay connected too; this is vital in a day and age where the home has become a place to work and learn at as well.


Check for Onsite Facilities

The benefit of living in an apartment complex is that you will most often have access to added facilities and amenities. Apart from finding the right living space, check what kind of facilities you can make use of. For example, some apartments in Colombo will offer a rooftop outdoor deck where you can unwind or get active; key features to look for include a swimming pool, track for jogging, well-equipped gym and areas for yoga and meditation. If it also has a play area for kids, a games room and spots for sports like badminton, all the better!


Go Through the Contract

Once the apartment has ticked all the boxes of your dream home requirements, you can proceed to the actual purchasing or renting of it! When doing so, take time to go through the contract carefully and see what is included and not included. Choosing an apartment from a reputed company is a good idea in this regard in terms of trusting them with your investment too. When buying an apartment, things to consider include the inclusion of freehold and foreign ownership, rental income repatriation and car parking access.
