Affordable lifestyle – why should you consider buying an apartment now

Affordable lifestyle living is only an investment away. Buying property is, by default, a daunting and expensive process. Understanding where and why to buy is key in making the right choice for you, your family, and your wallet! Buying an apartment comes with many benefits. At the top of the list is affordability. Apartments are generally more affordable regarding the initial investment, the monthly costs, and the lifestyle that comes with apartment living. Here at The Manhattan @ Amberfield City, we designed an affordable estate without skimping on quality!

Apartments – an affordable lifestyle entry point into the property investment market

When comparing the purchase price of an apartment to that of a freestanding house, most apartments will rise to the top when it comes to affordability. The Manhattan @ Amberfield City has gone to great lengths to create a secure lifestyle estate with modern, upmarket apartments – starting from R975 000 for a two-bedroom apartment. With little to no competition regarding price and additional amenities, Central Developments has made it easy to enter the property investment market. Your initial expenses are kept at a minimum, with transfer costs included in your purchase price. All units at The Manhattan are fibre-ready and DSTV plug-and-play ready for your convenience. The units’ finishes are modern and comply with our high-quality standards. You won’t have to worry about renovating anytime soon!

Apart from lower purchasing prices and initial expenses, an apartment also has lower monthly fees. Apartments generally have lower levies, rates, and taxes. This can be seen at The Manhattan @ Amberfield City where the estimated levies for a single-story, freestanding house is R2 528 per month. An apartment on the third floor has an estimated levy of R975 per month. This is due to the levies being calculated at a rate per square metre (R/m²) on the size of your unit.

With an apartment, you won’t find yourself searching for lost coins to cover maintenance. Simply put, an apartment is smaller than a house. This means less furniture, less electricity, and overall, less expense. You can also have peace of mind when it comes to the exterior maintenance of the apartment block since the estate manager takes care of the exterior maintenance as well as all the recreational areas within the estate.

Another benefit of having an apartment is the fact that you’ll save on insurance. The state-of-the-art security at The Manhattan will ensure a lower monthly premium for both your house and car.

Affordable lifestyle with apartment living

The challenge is to buy somewhere that’s affordable without having to sacrifice valuable amenities for yourself or your family. Buying an apartment can allow you to live in a desirable area, good family neighbourhoods, and city centres. The Manhattan is situated a mere 200 m away from Amberfield College, allowing your children to easily and safely walk to and from school.

Owning an apartment in an estate allows you to benefit from lifestyle facilities while staying within your budget.
