Luxury Mansions Brynston

Luxury Mansions in Fourways 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.

High End Real Estate Agent

No one seems to question that these homes, often owned by extremely wealthy and usually famous people, are luxurious. In fact, these homes in Fourways 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 Fourways  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.

If you are unsure how to categorize your home, your best bet is to talk to an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS). Real estate agents with this specialty are knowledgeable about national luxury home trends, luxury buyer and seller needs, and the development of unique high level services.

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.

Live in someone else’s house

Between September to November 2016, I lived in 25 different AirBnB, from San Francisco, Peninsula, South/East Bay, Oakland to the suburban of Bay area.Map of Bay Area, CA

I moved from New York City to Bay area due to my new job at Startups.
(Recommended read: A Life Before & After The Startup)

I was looking for a place to settle and wanted to know the different areas in the Silicon valley.

I thought the best way to really know the neighbors are to actually live in.So I lived in different areas, switching the places in every few days until I find the right area to settle in.

What is AirBnB?

Airbnb is an online marketplace and hospitality service, enabling people to lease or rent short-term lodging including vacation rentals, apartment rentals, homestays, hostel beds, or hotel rooms. — Wikipedia

$1,000/night Luxury house to $25 Hacker house

AirBnB offers different type of houses.

Yurt (a tent) to a Tree house, Hacker house to Luxury house. 
Entire house, Private room and Shared room.The choice is yours.Yurt in Carmel / Tree house in Burlingame ( I did not stay there)

Depending on your need, there is a ‘right’ place for you, if you search and book them well in advance. Good ones goes first.

I tried different types of setup, room, house, area and neighbors.

I first picked some well-reviewed rooms/houses in SF Peninsula area with costs between $60 — $120/night, then read reviews to know more about the places.

My First AirBnB was a private ‘studio’ house in Redwood City, CA. $90/night.

The studio house was located on the backyard of the host family’s main house, completely private, very clean and true to the description on the site. 
My first AirBnB experience could not be better than this.

My First AirBnB — one of the best experience, if not the best.I moved to the second AirBnB with 3BR house because I had 2 guests staying with. The house costs about $200/night.

If we book hotel rooms for three. Each will cost more than $100/night, so it’s much cheaper than staying in a hotel. 
Besides, this was much better setup for early stage startups like us, since we can do —

Meetings, Hacks and Party — All night long 🙂3BR house in Red Wood City / celebrating test results

After they left states, I switched back to a smaller place, with a private room. The flexibility is one of the merit of AirBnB. You can easily switch places as you please.

A private room in San Carlos / San Francisco

I also tried a type of shared house called ‘Hacker House’ — specially set up for the early stage Tech-Startups entrepreneurs, providing an affordable working space with desks and shared bedrooms. Costs $25~/night.

Hacker House in East Palo Alto and in Cupertino

In Oakland, I booked a beautiful 4BR house for team building activities —

A lot of Meetings, Hacks and Party — All week long :-)After me trying many different neighbors in the Bay area.I got a pretty good idea of how the each neighbors are like.

AirBnB vs Hotel

AirBnB vsv Hotel

You all stayed in Hotel before, so you know what you expect from Hotel.

There are cheap hotels and expensive hotels, but they all comes with a private room with almost identical rules and expectations.

For AirBnB, each place can provide you a very different experience
Some are very private, while some are extremely invasive.

Good thing about AirBnB is that there are so many options. I believe you will get a better experience (value) out of AirBnB if you know how to pick the ‘right’ place.

Finding ‘Right’ Place

When you go to AirBnB.com, you will probably be overwhelmed with all the choices you have (depending on the location, some places may not have many choices). Luckily there are filters to eliminate some unworthy places.

Room Type:

If you are with group, or require complete privacy then select “Entire House”. If you are okay to share the living room, but not okay to share the bed room, then you should select Private room.

Unfortunately there is no easy way to filter for Private Bath room if that’s your thing.

Instant Book:

If you can’t wait for 24 hours for the host to confirm the reservation.

Super Host:

Superhost is a Five-Star host and they are tested and trusted by other users.

3 issues with AirBnB

After trying many different places, there are 3 issues I noticed:

AirBnB — require IoT Smart Lock

Access Management

This is a most obvious and critical issue. Me as a guest entering to the house, the host has to be present to hand over the house key.

Some host installed a keypad door lock and texted me an access cord to enter.

I am hoping that AirBnB is already working on some kind of IoT type solution here.

Ideally, there should be an integration between AirBnB booking and Access Management system,so that when I arrive, the door opens automatically for the duration of my stay.

Privacy

Since you are living in someone else’s house, you can’t expect complete privacy unless the room is physically separated and access management systems are in-place.

Quality of Service

QoS is very much depending on the places. The Five-Star reviewed places are always booked first, so you sometime have no choice but to choose from the places with mixed reviews or less reviews.

Live like a Local and become Local

“Live like a Local” is their slogan — Providing a local information through the host and enhancing the guest experience.

This is kind of true. I had much better feel of the local neighbors/areas while I was staying at AirBnB compared to Hotel.

After living more than two months in AirBnB across many different neighbors in the Bay Area,I finally settled in an area that I loved most.One of the merit of AirBnB is that you can actually live in the neighbor you like as a short term try out.

I hope you enjoy the post.

I loved the experience I had with AirBnB and highly recommend to try if you haven’t tried it yet.

Tack T.
