Apartment living – The things you need to think twice about before renting

Whether you’re looking for a new home or downgrading from a large house or even just considering renting here are the things you need to think about if you’re looking for apartments for sale in Colombo.

The Location

Print a map of the region and mark a dot over the location that is most essential to you before you begin apartment hunting. It may be your workplace, the gym, or a favourite relative’s home. Determine how far you’re willing to go to get to your favourite spot. Draw a circle that contains the towns and neighbourhoods within a 10km radius if you want to reside no more than 10km away. The circle will assist you in identifying excellent locations and avoiding spending time viewing flats that will not suit your needs.

Cost-effectiveness

When looking for a new house, it’s crucial to think about all of your monthly expenses, not just the rent. Add up all your costs from your security deposit to renter’s insurance and divide by 12 to get the true cost of an apartment. Before you fall in love with a certain apartment, the figure you see will help you make sure you have enough room in your budget.

Convenience

When it comes to apartments, convenience is a feature that is sometimes disregarded. Your new property may be lovely and big, but if it takes 20 minutes to go to the local grocery shop or 40 minutes to get to the train station, it will quickly lose its allure. When looking for an apartment, don’t forget to factor in your commute. Time how long it takes you to go to and from work by visiting the complex during morning and evening rush hours.

Parking space

Parking a long distance from your apartment has several advantages. As you haul your goods from the farthest reaches of the parking lot, you’ll get some exercise and some fresh air. If a long walk from your car to your house doesn’t appeal to you, see if the neighbourhood has allocated parking places. If it doesn’t, stopping over in the evening before signing a lease to see how many unoccupied spaces are available for both residents and visitors is a smart idea. There are many apartment complexes such as ones offered by Prime Residencies that have all the basic amenities and needs perfectly sorted out for you.
