The apartment is an alternative residential community in urban areas. The increasingly limited availability of land and increasingly congested road conditions make this vertical residential a choice of place to live.
Nevertheless, buying an apartment is different from buying a house. A number of things need to be considered by end-users and novice investors:
Choose apartments near work locations or other routine activities. Access must also be considered, such as close to public transportation lines and other public facilities, such as shopping centers, hospitals, places of worship, schools, and others.
The price of an apartment unit varies, depending on location, floor location, view unit, and facilities. Usually developers sell apartments in the size of a semi-gross area – which has a difference of 8% – 15% greater than the original size of the apartment unit (net area).
Buying apartment units in hard cash are actually more profitable because you can get a big discount (around 15% – 20%).
If finance is insufficient, the method of gradual cash payment (installment) can be chosen. But usually the tenor given by the developer is only a maximum of five years, so the nominal that must be disbursed per month is still quite large.
