Units often represent a more affordable option for first home buyers to get a foot onto the property
ladder in their desired neighbourhood. Equally units are also an attractive proposition for those looking to downsize as they head into retirement offering the owner a single storey property which is easy to maintain.
When buying a unit some of the important things to consider include;
- Space – does the unit for sale provide enough storage and space to house your belongings?
- Neighbours – as units for sale are usually situated in blocks of 4 – 6, spend some time observing the property to learn more about how the neighbours behave. It is also useful to find out if the other units in the block are rented or occupied by owners.
- Body corporate – how is the body corporate run and what are the fees?
To find the ideal unit, don’t rush into buying; take your time to look at the many units for sale before making your final purchase decision.
