When you heard about luxury apartment living, what is your idea of it?
For most of us, luxury apartment living means a beautiful apartment with new appliances, updated floors or carpet, and definitely a high maintenance cost - monthly.
What most people don’t know is that living in a luxury apartment is not that costly as it may seem and CAN actually SAVE you money. Below you will find the benefits of living in luxury apartments, and the different ways it will save you money in the long run!
1. Fitness Centers
Although most apartment communities have onsite fitness centres, they may not have the equipment needed for a full-body workout. Luxury apartments are nice because they’ve spent the money to make their fitness centres bigger, and more equipped to provide residents with more workout machines and weights for a better workout.
In addition to having nicer equipment and more room to exercise, many luxury apartments have now added group fitness classes like Zumba, Yoga, and Kickboxing. Luxury apartment living offers a fitness centre with a well-equipped gym AND group fitness classes, eliminating the need for a gym membership. Depending on where your current gym membership is, you could be saving $20 to $50 per month by utilizing your luxury apartment community’s fitness centre and classes.
2. Location and Proximity
Luxury apartment living has many benefits to offer residents. One of the benefits of living in luxury apartments could be that you are within close vicinity to common necessities like popular shopping centres, restaurants, and entertainment. Living close to the places you go to often not only saves you gas money, but it saves you time and alleviates stress. Not having to travel 20 to 30 minutes out of your way (or longer with traffic) to buy groceries or see a movie could make your life happier and your bank account fuller.
Many luxury apartments have gated, secure communities that often have surveillance cameras. Although it may not fully protect you or your vehicle from theft, it certainly is a deterrent. For those living in not so safe cities, you can breathe a little easier knowing you and your vehicle are safe. And let’s be honest, you can’t put a price on safety. You may not be saving tons of money by living in a gated community, but you definitely won’t be losing any money either!
4. Spas and Wellness Centers
Many luxury apartments have realized that Spas and Wellness Centers are places people frequent often! Relaxation is an essential part of life, and part of many people’s monthly, or even weekly routine! A growing trend in luxury apartment living is to have an onsite wellness centre or spa that offers services like massage and facial treatments. Imagine coming home from a long, stressful day at work, and realize you are just minutes away from a blissful massage. And the best part is, you don’t even have to drive there or back! Even if your apartment community doesn’t have an onsite spa, it may have a jacuzzi and sauna. Both are relaxing and can be great for the skin.
Onsite Wellness Center
In addition to having spa-like amenities, many luxury apartments have beautiful courtyards or garden areas to relax and unwind. Nothing says relaxation like gorgeous scenery and a good book. People who live in luxury apartment communities can enjoy the serene and beautiful landscaping without having to leave their apartment and travel to a park.
5. Business Perks & Free Events
Luxury apartment living allows those who live a fast-paced and busy life an easier way to get things done. Residents can use the entertainment rooms for events that are often hard to plan. They’re elegant and affordable and if the party gets too wild, you won’t have to worry about calling an Uber to get home. You’ll already be there!
Many free events happen in the common areas. Luxury apartment living means free wine tasting nights, movie nights, and sometimes you might even get free breakfast on your way to work. Leasing agents work hard to put events together for their residents, if you take advantage of them, you can have some great experiences and save money at the same time!
Many of the business centres in luxury apartment communities offer free printing, and you can bet they have a free coffee bar for those late-night work sessions.
6. NO Yard to MOW!
Maintaining a yard has proven to be a lot of work especially to those who got big lands. This has been a constant complaint amongst homeowners who need to weekly trim and mow grasses and bushes. In a luxury apartment, there’s spaces and areas that have all the greens where it will not require you to be hands-on in keeping neat and beautiful. You can indulge in beautifully landscaped outdoor areas and lounges without the dirty work!
When land is scarce and with an on-going pandemic crisis, would you rather live in a place where you got all your needs covered in one place? Without compromising the quality of lifestyle you deserve?
