Category: Condominium (10)

The word CONDOMINIUM originates from the Latin words, ‘con‘ which mean ‘together with’, and ‘dominium‘ which mean ‘righ of ownership’.

 

In the US, condominiums include a wide range of high-rise residential property types like apartments, penthouses, town houses, studio units, duplexes and triplexes.

 

In Malaysia, the condominium is perceived as a high-end apartment, usually with good quality fixtures and designed with more sophisticated features.

 

Condo-buying-and-living

THERE are innumerable reasons why families move homes, and space constraints is one of the main deciding factors. Customarily, we would see a growing family upgrading from an apartment or a single storey house, to a three or four-bedroom double storey home, or a bungalow, if affordable.

 

This was a reality 15 years ago, but today, it is very different. The hike in property prices has seen an increase in the number of families living in condominiums compared to landed homes. Although families with an average of two to three children are making 1,200 sq. ft. (minimum) condominiums their preferred home, the general public’s acceptance of condo-living is equivocal.

 

While condo or apartment living has been the norm for our neighbors in Singapore, Malaysians or at least those up till Generation Y, had the choice of “living on land” when they were growing up. Most condominium occupants in the Klang Valley today will attest to this. It is a process, getting acclimatized towards living in a high-rise.

 

After two decades or more living in a landed property to be suddenly riding an elevator to get home, takes some getting used to. Yet the demand is there, partly coerced by property prices. Still, there is something about
the self sufficiency of condo living that seems to appeal to families. Property developers discerning the needs and wants of families are establishing self sufficient developments. This is prevalent in landed property i.e. guarded and gated (G&G)communities but more so, condominiums. The luxury of not having to leave home or its proximate surroundings to get groceries or necessities is one of the primary attractions towards a condominium lifestyle. Obviously, the standard of comfort increases based on the location, price and prestige of the condominium. One can expect free daily zumba classes at a luxury condominium but not in a standard high-rise residence. Still, a decent mid-range condominium has all the basic amenities to keep occupants happy, from swimming pools to clubhouses and cafes. If anything, the numbers don’t lie. According to the Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association of Malaysia (REHDA), strata residential properties are on the rise and expected to grow further in 2013.
