Thinking of purchasing a new residence? You might have heard of strata properties and the numerous benefits of having a strata residence. If you are still on the fence about whether this is the right choice for you, read below about the advantages of strata living.
Some homeowners prefer strata living because it is convenient in the sense that someone (strata manager) is looking over common and shared facilities such as lobbies, gardens, lounges, swimming pools, roofs, etc. They don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn on the sprinkler for the plants or for maintaining the cleanliness of the pool. The facilities are always ready and clean for their use.
Strata properties are also more affordable compared to buying a stand-alone house. You must remember to have strata insurance as the shared properties are also covered in the policy.
Most strata properties are located in really nice location to appeal to more buyers. Usually, strata properties are in city centres or near beach fronts because this is what homeowners wanting to purchase residential properties are looking for. Strata properties are in appealing and convenient locations which makes them a perfect place to live in.
You would not need to be tired from the commute or driving because you would be near to where you work and your kids would also be near to their schools. You could also just bring the whole family to a nearby mall for dinner if you don’t have the time to cook
One of the perks of strata living is the added amenities. Not all could afford to have a swimming pool in their backyard or a sprawling garden in their front yard. Strata living also includes added amenities such as a BBQ area, playgrounds, gymnasium, sauna, library, etc. It’s like having your own community and a place for rest and relaxation without needing to leave the comforts of your own home.
If you are paying for a monthly gym membership or swimming is your form of exercise or you love to entertain and host parties, strata living is for you. You would be able to save money on gym memberships or entrance fees to resorts and treating your family and friends to restaurants because you could all do these without the added costs since your home already has these amenities.
Lower Maintenance Costs
When you purchase a house and lot, all of the maintenance costs would be shouldered by you. But if you purchase a strata residence, the maintenance costs particularly of the shared facilities would be shouldered by all the residents. You would not need to worry about not having the money for repairs because the costs would be levied by all the owners.
These are just some of the benefits of strata living, not to mention having a sense of community lifestyle since you would have numerous opportunities and chances to see and mingle with your neighbours especially those who have the same schedule as you with using and enjoying the shared facilities.
