Is the high life for you?

As you’re in the market looking for a permanent domicile, how do you make that decision? Are the vertical pockets the best choice for you or a simple low-rise the way to go? To help you on your quest to find a home, here are a few pros and cons of high-rise living.

Pros

Views

With a high-rise, you get to witness that perfect sunrise and sunset you double-tap on your phone. Your stunning balcony view will replace the 42inch flat-screen TV in your living room. You have more natural lighting for the perfect filter-free selfies with a high-rise apartment.

Security

A big advantage of high-rise apartments is the doorman/security. Feeling safe and secure in the place you live puts your mind at ease more than you realize. As the famous American psychologist once said, life is an ongoing process of choosing between safety (out of fear and need for defense) and risk (for the sake of progress and growth).

Amenities

High-rise buildings often times have a gym or a pool for the residents to use. This can cut down on the cost of the gym and you won’t even have to go out of the building to keep yourself in shape! Furthermore, if you cringe at the thought of climbing up 4 flights of stairs, the high-rise is for you. High-rise apartments almost always have a couple of elevators working.

Cons

Neighbors

Living in a high-rise apartment means you have neighbors living in all body relative directions. You need to be very considerate about the noise you make and you might be very conscious about the fact that people are living right next to you. Most of the time high-rise buildings have rules put in place to limit the noise you can make.

Building restriction

When certain rules and regulations can be beneficial for you, it can get annoying at times. The building management might have specific days they allow move-in lorries to come in or your visitors might need to go through tedious registration before they are allowed to come in. It is important to keep yourself up to date on the rules and regulations they might have set in place.

Balcony

Although the views you get might be breathtaking, the downside is that’s all that balcony has to offer. If you are someone who wants to grow your own vegetables, you will have very limited options. You might as well stick to having a couple of indoor plants to satisfy your plant craving.

With high-rise living, the pros tend to balance out the cons. In a country like Malaysia where urban land is scarce and in such high demand, high-rise buildings might be the only option for you. Just remember with whichever you choose, high-rise or low-rise, with just the right mindset, you can always make it your home.
