Units for Sale on The Northern Beaches

When it comes to buying or investing in property, the first thing that comes to mind is the purchase of a house, though trends over the last decade (especially) with a younger demographic group entering the property market is the increase in popularity of apartments and units with this trend not just being limited to inner city suburbs or areas. Often this preference is from younger couples and professionals who are not ready to make their first house purchase, though want their own space to live and perceive renting as a waste of money that could be used in paying off their own apartment and using this as an investment to ultimately purchase a house.

Advantages of Apartments

Apartments and units have a number of advantages especially for younger people who live more active lifestyles with less time on their hands for things like maintaining a garden or mowing lawns. Some of the advantages of buying a unit include.


More times than not an apartment will cost significantly less in comparison to a house in the same suburb and rent on a house alone is most likely going to cost significantly more than paying off a unit purchase. This is especially important to those who want to get into the property market early when they are young and lack the capacity for a significantly high investment.

Less Maintenance Time

Generally being smaller and having less floor space than a house means that less time needs to be spent on cleaning tasks, with this being a big selling point for younger people who are always on the go and busy with other daily activities. More internal space almost always means more appliances and once again this means more that can go wrong and more to look after. As apartments don’t have backyards this is also another time saver with busy young professionals and not having to worry about the upkeep and maintenance of lawns and gardens that can get in the way of busy lifestyles or other associated outdoor areas such as fences and patios.

Sense of Community

For some who are living alone the sense of a mini community and togetherness that apartments can afford is a major drawcard as opposed to living in a house where there is space between neighbours and those who don’t want to live with others who they are not familiar with. This means they can bump into familiar places in hallways without having to co-inhabit.


Apartments buildings are taller than a standard house and this can afford the opportunity for a nice view that is not possible from a house such as living on the 10th floor of an apartment complex overlooking the ocean. Another benefit of apartment living is that a view of the ocean or other prominent landmark can be attainable when this may not be the case with a house.


Most if not all apartment complexes will have shared amenities such as a swimming pool, BBQ area or even play areas which can be enjoyed without the maintenance or cost of upkeep all on one's own.
