Those days are long gone when looking for a house to invest in was only about the type, size, location and value of the house. These days, when you buy a residential property in a gated society or integrated community, you don’t only look for the house but also for the amenities that come along with it. All the amenities such as advanced security system, gym, spa, swimming pool, tennis/basketball court (both, indoor and outdoor sports) nearby school, park, mall etc. need to be taken care of before finalizing a property.
Since most (if not all) of these amenities will be used by you and if those are not within your community, then you would need to look for them at a closer distance from your home. So, instead of putting yourself in that situation, looking for a property with all these amenities nearby make sense.
Your budget plays the most important part while looking for amenities when selecting a residential property. Because all these amenities in a township come with a certain price attached to them. And you will be paying for the use and maintenance of these amenities. Your budget will determine whether these amenities are essential or can be avoided. Don’t ever forget that you have to pay an EMI every month. So, don’t go overboard and make a wise decision while buying a new house.
Essential amenities to look for:
- Car Parking
- Security System (Service)
- Water Supply
- Power Backup
- Nearby Hospital
Amenities with higher home budget:
- Club House
- Play Area
- Swimming Pool
- Yoga Studio
- Rooftop Garden
- Concierge services
- Temples (or other religious institutions)
- Private lift
Experts in the real estate sector suggest opting for amenities that are within your budget. Never go overboard because of the excitement you have, you see all these things in a place. Be aware of your wants and needs and keep a checklist of things ready that you really need.
