Ask these important questions before you buy a property

2016-04-06 06:00

WHEN you are considering buying a house, ask yourself the following questions:

Where is the property?

Location is the number-one factor to consider. It includes factors like security, property growth and traffic congestion.

Elbert Height is opposite Northridge Mall, which contains some excellent retail and private stores, as well as a Virgin Active Gym, cinemas and several exquisite restaurants.

Elbert Height is within driving distances from popular pre-, primary and high schools, as well as health practitioners and clinics.

Is the property inside a secured complex?

Elbert Height is a very secure complex with only the best security operational systems on the market and a high-perimeter brick-built electrical fence.

The developer pays for the first year for the services of a security company and in the second year of residing at Elbert Height, you will pay a very competitive price at only R250 per month.

The best CCTV systems have been installed and security guards will be on duty 24 hours, seven days a week.

Who is the developer?

Lenova Construction and Development has been operational since 2006 in Bloemfontein. We have started building Vista Park, Mandela View, moved to Lilyvale, completed Andes Park, Blue Ridge, Crestone Hills and Delano View with great success. We have already started and are entering the finishing stages of Elbert Height in Hillside and are well on our way with Forbes Park.

What type of design is it?

The architectural design is modern and sophisticated. The paint inside and out is of the best quality and modern finishes will be long lasting. The units have magnificent wooden cupboards, the best quality in cooking equipment and the latest in tiles and granite tops, with vanity cupboards in all the bathrooms.

What type of communal facilities does the complex contain?

Elbert Height contains a communal swimming pool and a communal braai area.

Are they going green?

Lenova Construction has installed prepaid water and electricity meters, a heat pump geyser, echo-friendly roof tiles and aluminium windows.

Are the prices competitive?

There is no comparison with similar developments and the rush in demand for sectional title properties is to continue in the future.
