Are you looking for a mortgage broker to help you buy your first home in the Baldivis area? At Smartline Rockingham, we have helped numerous clients purchase their first homes.
Recently, we were doing research for our blog and came upon an article called “The 10 Commandments of Apartment Living.” We liked the piece but realised that five of those reasons are great reasons for buying your own home immediately. So, ignoring the financial factors, here are five great reasons to get started on buying that first home.
Sharing Laundry Facilities
The communal laundry and clothesline can be a fierce battleground if you’re not careful. Most of the “good times” for doing laundry are when everyone else is home and wants to do theirs, too.
Most of the spaces outside your unit are communal. This includes: corridors, gardens, terraces and lifts. You can’t really leave anything “out” for fear that it gets in someone’s way.
There’s nothing like getting ready for a relaxing weekend, only to find out your next-door neighbour has rented their apartment for the weekend to tourists who are there to party.
Parking is usually in short supply in an apartment. If you have visitors often, this can be a problem. Your neighbours might not like you having a chronic “extra vehicle” on the premises.
Noise and Parties
Whether you are someone who makes noise or someone who hates it, noise can often be a problem. When you live in an apartment, you are going to be expected to adhere to community standards and regulations. You won’t be able to have your TV on as loud as you want. Practising drums in your apartment is not a very good way to make friends.
If you like to “party” and entertain guests, your apartment probably isn’t going to be the best place most of the week.
