Luxury apartments offerings
Widespread experience building, filling and managing luxury apartments has helped some of the real estate leaders to really know what people want in a home. The layout of luxury apartments lends an open feel to the apartments.
Common amenities that are in luxury apartments include spacious rooms, walk in closets and en suites, some which are as large as bedrooms in starter houses. Kitchens may lead to a private laundry room or to a den or outdoor space that can be used as a garden room.
Porches at luxury apartments are similar in size as back porches found at traditional houses. Key to getting the most out of luxury apartment porches is to choose an apartment with a porch that overlooks lush gardens, a mountain view or a distant beach or lake.
Pay attention while renting luxury apartments
Depending on where you live, you could also find a luxury apartment with a porch that overlooks a natural reserve or a densely wooded area. Expect to spot an assortment of birds and other small animals if you rent a luxury apartment near a wooded area. You might wake to the sound of birds singing every morning.
What you may not get with luxury apartments are large kitchens. You'll know early if this is important to you. Once you discover how important it is to you to have access to a large kitchen, add "large kitchen" to your first house list of"must haves". The same applies to whether you prefer single or multi-level living spaces.
Learn what you love in a home while living in luxury apartments
A good way to introduce yourself to luxury living without buying a house that's well into the six figure price range is to rent a luxury apartment. Just be prepared to pay rents that may top what you'd pay on a mortgage, perhaps hundreds more a month than what you would pay for a house depending on where the luxury apartments are located.
But, don't just live in luxury apartments. Pay attention to housing features that you appreciate most, the types of amenities that make you feel like you are truly home as soon as you walk through the front door. Exquisite granite kitchen counters, long marble bathroom counters, hardwood floors and massive master bedrooms and en suites are common amenities in luxury apartments.
Look for similar amenities in your first house. One option might be to buy land and build a house that fits the luxury living you got used to while you were renting an apartment. Another option is to buy a starter house then make upgrades that put the starter house in the same ballpark as luxury apartments.
