g) Traffic

One of the best venues to look after for an apartment is where traffic is average even in a peak hour, which is usually a few kilometers away from the city areas. A few minutes drive from the city to your home shouldn’t be a problem at all, considering you will be away from heavy traffic, pollution, and crowded places, where you can sleep well and enjoy your moment with family.

h) Know how old the apartment is

Many people seem to pass this test but you should always know when and how the building was built. Knowing how old the apartment is, you can guess whether it fits your criteria or not. Buying a very old apartment for a cheaper price to live in wouldn’t be the best decision in the long term.

i) Security

When you buy an apartment then a maintenance fee is the mandatory requirement. But you should only pay reasonable fees as per the services and securities you are receiving.

k) Parking Facilities

When you live in an apartment then it's obvious that you have to have parking facilities. Now, it’s important to make sure that whether you would get your own parking space and whether you should pay extra for the parking?
