Apartment living is on the rise in Perth, with more and more West Aussies choosing to embrace inner-city life and the benefits that come with it. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ 2016 Census, the ratio of occupied apartments to houses has been increasing steadily, from one to seven in 1991 to one to five in 2016.
The reasons to consider apartment living include affordability and convenience, but they don’t end there. We spoke to Perth PRD Real Estate Managing Director Angus Murray about why first home buyers should consider swapping a backyard for a rooftop swimming pool.
“Location is the key benefit of apartment living,” Mr Murray said.
“A brand-new apartment located in the heart of the city provides a premium postcode, convenience, and savings in terms of cost and time, which means more time for the things you enjoy!”
And with Perth’s ever-growing bucket list of restaurants, bars, cafes, shopping hotspots and rooftop venues on your doorstep, the city will become your playground. You’re in the epicentre of it all – theatre & entertainment, sporting facilities, public transport options, Elizabeth Quay, the Swan River, world famous Kings Park, Northbridge entertainment precinct, and so much more.
The low maintenance required with apartment living compared to a house in the suburbs will free up your leisure time. There’s less cleaning and no garden to maintain.
“Most young people want to spend their spare time doing things other than gardening and cleaning, making an apartment a wise choice,” Mr Murray said.
Why spend Saturday mowing the lawn when you could be having rooftop cocktails by the pool?
ACCESS TO RESORT STYLE FACILITIES
Imagine having an infinity rooftop pool and an outdoor cinema at home? That’s the reality of apartment living.
You can have a sauna whenever you like, enjoy the outdoor barbecue lounge area, and hit the gym at your own convenience – for free. Amazing, resort-style amenities like these will have you feeling like you’re on holiday any day of the week.
Apartment living allows you to live more sustainably, with new apartments all about good design both in and out to help future-proof the environment. New builds focus on energy efficiency such as maximising natural light and ventilation, minimising the consumption of non-renewable resources and other efficiency features such as low emissivity glass.
When choosing to walk, catch public transport or cycle for short trips from your apartment, it also helps to reduce your carbon footprint and reduce traffic congestion.
