High End Waterfall

High End in Johannesburg they depend on your information source, you will get a different answer to the question of what can be classified as a luxury home. The greatest difference in definitions is between towns; however, there seems to be agreement regarding the upper end of homes.

Homes that are unquestionably luxurious, are worth tens of millions of dollars or more. They have incredible amenities, professional landscaping and property planning, and are generally massive in size with ten or more bedrooms. These homes are advertised nationally and internationally. Real estate agents for these properties have additional responsibilities involving trusts, attorneys, and anonymity issues.

Luxury New Homes

No one seems to question that these homes, often owned by extremely wealthy and usually famous people, are luxurious. In fact, these homes in Johannesburg should be called “super luxury” homes to differentiate them from other high end homes.

In an entirely different class, the other group of luxury homes, are advertised locally. Property in the US that is valued at over a million dollars is usually considered luxury real estate. Consumers in high socio-economic groups are the target for these properties.

This second group of homes may have features such as wet bars, designer kitchens, wine cellars, theatre seating, in-ground pools, security systems, professional landscaping, heated floors, and tennis courts. These homes are generally larger than average with good locations, amenities, property entries, and entertainment capabilities.

Luxury homes tend to have entertainment rooms with features such as built in seating and high end, up-to-date technology for the best movie watching experiences. Designer kitchens are also very trendy in high end homes with features such as custom paneling for appliances, extra under-the-counter refrigerators or beverage centers, and wine bars that fit among the kitchen pantry and other storage cabinets. Designer kitchens also include granite countertops, high end fixtures, customized storage drawers, and pullout pantries.

There’s no question that this second group of homes are also desirable homes to live in. However, are they really in the same class as homes in Johannesburg  which are also called luxury homes?

In both groups of homes, location, amenities, property entry, entertainment capability, and landscaping are considered. Most luxury homes offer a combination of desirable natural elements such as ocean proximity, views, or climate, and professionally designed landscaping and architecture. But really, if a 1.2 million dollar, lakefront home with a dock and a swimming pool is a luxury home, then Mariah Carey’s home must be a “super luxury” home.

Super Luxury House

Hyderabad is one of the cities in India where the real estate prices are the lowest. In terms of buying and renting, this city ranks top as the most affordable in the country. The recent studies show that even those with an annual income of Rs. 10 lakh can afford to buy residential property in Hyderabad. The average property price in the city is less than Rs. 50 lakh and the average monthly rent is Rs. 12,000. The EMI on home loans and average monthly rent tend to be almost equal, making buying a better option. Even a luxury housing facility is available for better rates in Hyderabad. The trick is to identify the best luxury property at a prime location to get the maximum benefits say experts at Sulekha Properties.

Builders

The builders you choose can add to the value of luxury. Always look for the high quality developers that deliver only top-class projects. The tier-1 developers promise value for money for the investment you make.

Areas for buying

Those who are planning to buy luxury home in Hyderabad need to look for areas that have the best infrastructure and facilities. It is not enough that a housing project falls into the luxury category. The area where it is located also must qualify for luxury living. Access to good roads, facilities for leisure and entertainment, and excellent connectivity are some of the features that make a place an ideal choice for luxury housing. Locations like Banjara Hills, Jubilee Hills, Kondapur, Hitech City offer quality living and facilities to the buyers.

Facilities

One of the mistakes that a luxury home buyer makes is to be lured by the premium amenities advertised by the builders. Many frivolous facilities that made you buy the house may remain unused after months of living as the initial novelty fades. Always look for only those features and facilities that you will be using on a regular basis. Another consideration is the level of security offered. Many luxury projects offer multi-level security systems involving innovative technological devices and trained manpower. Make sure that the promises and offers are delivered efficiently.

Neighbours

As important as the builder and the location is the kind of neighbours you have in the chosen luxury housing project. If a major part of the owners in a villa or apartment project are investors who let out their property to tenants, there is going to be lesser concern towards the maintenance and longevity of the building or society. Always look for projects where the owners form the majority of residents.

5 Reasons Why 30A Luxury Homes Make the Best Investment

If you are one of the many people dreaming of owning a gulf front home as an investment property but are confused with all the choices on the market, you could start by looking at 30A luxury homes for sale with gulf views. If you are looking for low-maintenance properties, you may want to consider a gulf front condo.

Many buyers are anxious, or hesitant, about buying Gulf front properties because of the high cost associated with maintenance. However, there are fabulous 30A luxury homes, with gulf views, or even gulf front condos, where the maintenance is less costly. In fact if you purchase a gulf front condo (or any condo for that matter) the Condo Association is responsible for the maintenance!

Here are 5 reasons why you should buy a 30A luxury home for sale:

1. A beach home is more than just the structure.

Buying a home along 30A is more than just buying gulf front property…It’s a lifestyle. If you prefer to walk and bicycle everywhere (park your car when you arrive and don’t think about driving until you leave), then check out these Scenic 30A communities: Seacrest Beach Homes for Sale, Rosemary Beach homes for sale or Alys Beach Homes for sale.

Maybe you want to be a bit more ‘remote’? And ‘remote’ along Scenic 30A is a 5–10 minute drive to get to your destination! If so, then one of these communities might be of interest: Seagrove Beach, Grayton Beach or Blue Mountain Beach.

Properties with beach access are just as popular whether or not they are directly gulf front.

2. A struggling economy makes beach homes more affordable.

A struggling economy, in general, lowers the demand for luxury homes and beachfront property. This means that it is a great time for investors to buy gulf front property and luxury homes along 30A at a reduced price. Waterfront properties are priced lower than they were just a few years ago and will be the first to recover now that the economy is starting to improve.

3. Beach homes make great rental properties.

You can rent out your 30A luxury home on a weekly, monthly, or seasonal basis, to help offset costs. Scenic 30A is a special place where people can take a vacation any time of the year. Let your luxury home earn for you all year long by having the guests pay for it!

4. Take a beach vacation any time.

Because you already own a home along 30A, you can save thousands of dollars when you take a vacation by simply visiting your luxury home. Having your own rental property can make vacations easier to plan and more affordable. You get to take a vacation, in one of the world’s most beautiful destinations, without having to worry about lodging expenses in a faraway place.

5. Live in your very own home along 30A.

If you choose to, you can make your 30A luxury home your primary residence. In Florida, when you live in a property full-time, you can save money on property taxes by claiming a homestead exemption. Living in your own beach home along 30A allows you to enjoy the pleasures and laid back lifestyle of living in the area!

When choosing an investment property, make sure you are making the right decision by consulting an agent who knows the area well and has a lot of experience with 30A luxury homes. You can visit www.30ALuxuryHomes.com to get more information about buying homes along 30A.
