With the ever-increasing population in India, builders are increasingly constructing high-rise projects as residential properties for the home buyers. High-rise towers occupy a lesser area of land and can accommodate as many numbers of families. In recent times, such high-rise projects are built in both luxury and affordable categories. With so many types of floors offered in a tower, a buyer tends to get confused and may end up making a choice which may not necessarily match with his/her expectations.
The below points give special attention to the ground floor and the pros and cons of making it your new home:
5. If you are buying a ground floor apartment with a rental purpose, especially in cities with hot climatic conditions in India, you are likely to receive better rental incomes.
1. The ground floor gives a limited view of the city and at times, not at all. If the ground floor property you bought is located in a crowded area, you will have to compromise with your privacy. Dealing with all kinds of outdoor noise is another setback.
2. Ground floors are the zones with least security as they are easy targets for robbery. However, it also depends on the security level of the complex you are living in.
3. Ground floors are structured to receive comparatively less natural light and ventilation as well as the intrusion of dust, insects and mosquitoes. Ground floors suffer the most with drainage issues, causing a foul smell.
4. Be ready to pay more electricity bills during winters as ground floor usually takes maximum time in heating your indoors using heaters.
