Sell house and buy luxurious unit in security complex

2016-05-04 06:00

THERE are several reasons why you should sell your house in an open older neighbourhood and buy one in a security complex such as Crestone Hills.

High living expenses, the recent fuel increase, living closer to areas of work, greater convenience . . . these are all reasons to move.

Some people may also find that their economic circumstances have changed due to promotion and salary increases and they are now able to afford to move on to a larger or more upmarket home.

Another reason is the high crime rate in South Africa. Because of safety concerns, there has been a movement towards expanding communities in the form of sectional title complexes, duets and cluster housing.

Crestone Hills is situated in Lilyvale, in the northern part of Bloemfontein. It is very close to the Botanical Gardens, which offers peace of mind and tranquility.

The northern part is rapidly growing and is closer to good schools, churches, health facilities and fitness institutions, including the Northridge Mall, which can be reached in a five- to ten-minute drive.

At Preller Walk and Preller Square, you will find an Engen garage, Absa, FNB, a big Woolies Food Market, Pick n Pay and a Post Office. Lilyvale is also situated near popular churches and schools.

At Crestone Hills we have double-storey four-bedroomed units available, with three bathrooms and double garages. The size of the units are 182 to 225 m2.

The prices ranges from R1 430 000 to R1 720 000 and the units are equipped with the latest granite tops, elegant tiled floors and beautiful buildt-in cupboards, a communal play area for the children and a buildt-in braai with a very spacious garden.

Another great feature is the wooden double garage doors which are remote controlled. The security is excellent at Crestone Hills. There is a CCTV camera system, a 24-hour guard patrolling the facility, as well as a security guard at the cell to gate operated entrance.

Another reason to sell your house in older areas is that older homes lend themselves to modernisation, but people do not have the money and time to modernise these houses and prefer to buy an upmarket secure house in a complex.

These new areas have enormous financial growth potential. People tend to sell their old houses, which is inspired by emotion.

For example, some people decide to move after going through a divorce or death in the family and they no longer feel attached to their property. Moving to a brand new security complex, like Crestone Hills, may even heal some of those emotional scars.
