The Concept of Low Cost Apartment in Nepal Whenever, we see an advertisement in daily newspaper referring to Apartments available in 13 Lakhs to 14 Lakhs, we do not try to understand more about it. People rush to the Apartment office or the site office. I myself was very surprised, when I went to the Mero City Apartment office in Hattiban. The site was packed with visitors cars, as if a wedding reception was going on. Inside the office were around 20 Sales girls. All were busy explaining their apartment features to the customers. In fact, when I asked for the brochure, the number of brochure also had finished. The hall was packed with customers and I could see some bookings were done. The model apartments and the computer aided 3D movie were in display. People were busy viewing it. The price range of the Apartment was amazing. The price range of the Mero City Apartment varied from Nrs 1,500,000 for 1 BHK (386.45 sq.ft) to Nrs 4,000,000 for 3 BHK (1013 sq.ft) Similarly Eastern Apartment by Aayusha Developers a subsidiary of Oriental Builders Pvt. Ltd in Kaushaltar also was a huge attraction for Apartment buyers. The builders have opened the booking for only 348 of the total 448 apartments. However, they were able to sell 50% of the total booking in just first 5 days. The huge response from the customers surged the developer to call all the 448 units on booking. Due to the huge demand, the developer requested the interested buyers to fill up an application form along with a cheque of NRs 10,000. The applicant would get the apartment on first come first serve basis. These are the basic strategies for Developers which was already been implemented by Guna Colony for their sale of their Bhaisepati Apartment. Then, they had opened booking for the Bhaisepati Apartment price starting from 13 Lacks. There was huge respondent to the Apartments in Bhaisepati which was organized in the Real Estate Expo in Bhrikuti Mandap, Kathmandu. Most of these apartment sizes is ranging from 386.45 sq.ft to 548 sq.ft. The apartment size of 300-500 Sq. ft is very small for a family to live in and are similar to Studio Apartments abroad. These kinds of Apartments can adjust 1/2 people in a family to live in. The Rooms are very tight and no space for adding more luxury items. The customers must not just make their decision by viewing the 3D Modeled video. The actual room and the customers view before buying the apartment might actually just not match. Another important factor to decide before making the booking is that the customer must check the background of the Apartment Developers. Normally, we must only trust experienced Apartment Developers. These low cost apartments that are coming up in the market have been raising huge amount of funds from the market for the Proposed Apartment/Housing. The delivery and execution of these apartments is a real challenge and we must wait and see, if they can really develop these projects and their handover to their customer. So far, the construction of any of these low cost apartments has not started yet. Some established developers claim that the price the low cost apartments are offering is suspicious. Some claim that these low cost apartments are very expensive if one calculates the rate per sq ft. Such small apartment size is not feasible for a family to live in. The Eastern Apartment is the least expensive with price per sq. ft of Nrs 2,890 followed by The Sun City. The most expensive is the Imperial Court. However the target market for both the apartments is completely different as Imperial Court is a Luxury Condominium. And when we compare the different apartments, all has different facilities. Some important comparison factors of the facilities for different Apartments are as following: 1. Location of the Apartment 2. Number of Lifts 3. Size of the Balcony 4. Project Land Site Area 5. Size of the swimming pool 6. Open Area 7. Distance from the city 8. Quality of finishing goods and specification 9. Developers profile & Construction company associated The Apartment buyers must also think in mind the extra facilities the Apartment has. Normally, these apartments will have very poor infrastructures and facilities. They might actually come up with a very small swimming pool & very less open space. And not to forget is the fact that these low cost apartments come with hidden cost. Mero city Apartment comes with cement flooring. If you want a Parke ting or tiles on the floor, you will have to add all the internal decorative items for the Apartment. Mero City offers the following features: * Kitchen: Tiles, Sync * Flooring: Cemented * Wall: Distemper Things you have to add by yourself 1. Mostly, the modular kitchen 2. Bathroom sanitary items 3. Electricity bulbs 4. Flooring Tiles or Parke ting This will at least cost you Nrs 400,000 to 500,000 for the completion of the Apartment. So the Total cost for the 391 sq.ft Apartment is now Nrs 2,000,000 which actually brings the price per sq.ft for the Apartment to Nrs 5115.
How to Find the Best Gainesville Apartments For UF Students In Gainesville, if youre looking for housing, chances are that you are a UF student; more than 40% of the population is here to attend the University of Florida. Looking for your first Gainesville apartment can be a daunting task-- especially if youve never lived in an apartment before. By following these helpful tips and beginning your apartment search online, you can save time and find the best fit for you and your particular needs as a UF student. DETERMINE HOW YOULL GET TO UF CLASSES After spending a year on-campus in dorms like Broward, Hume, Springs or Fletcher, most UF students choose to live off-campus and begin searching for an apartment. And can you blame them? On-campus UF dorms are typically dark, damp and incredibly cramped, with most students sharing a bathroom with 45-60 other students. Unfortunately, UF does not offer on-campus parking near classes to UF students who dont live in the dorms. So before you begin your apartment search, the first thing to consider is how you will get to your UF classes. Will you walk? Will you bike? Will you ride a bus or seek out a spot in ParkNRide? If you plan on riding the bus from your apartment, youll need to leave at least 1 hour before your class begins to ensure that you wont be late. Remember that most RTS buses drop you off at the Hub (also known as the Reitz Union), and youll need to walk from there to your classes. The only other option is to seek out ParkNRide (which is so far from classes that youll need to ride a bus from your parking spot to the Hub and then walk from there). Because of the challenges youll face getting to your classes, most students seek out apartments near the UF campus, so that they can walk to class. It can be very difficult to find an apartment near UF, especially if students do not have the help of older friends and family who have been through the process before. Many of the apartment complexes near UF are small and dont advertise in the local apartment guides or Gainesville Apartment Hunters or similar apartment finder services. Instead, youll need to be proactive to find your best fit. START YOUR APARTMENT SEARCH ONLINE Smart students who want to find the best and cheapest apartments in Gainesville start their search online. They begin by navigating to sites like Google and typing in general keyword terms like Gainesville apartments and Gainesville apartments near UF. These terms will return a list of apartment complexes close to campus. The first few search results will include apartment finding services and roommate matching services that will list lots of the apartments with easy comparison charts, where you can search by style, size, move-in date and more. These same sites include many photo galleries, floorplans, virtual tours and maps showing where the apartments are located. By starting their search for the best Gainesville apartments online, students can really cut back on their research time. Many websites also include time-saving tools like schedule a tour buttons and even offer online specials. HOW TO COMPARE GAINESVILLE APARTMENTS While performing your apartment search online, be sure to take good notes. Youll want to make note of all of the following amenities in order to help determine which would be the best fit for you: * Location - how close is it to UF * How will you get to class - can you walk from the apartment to school * Square footage - how big is the apartment * Number of bedrooms - how many roommates will you have * Roommate Matching Services - does the apartment complex offer roommate matching or will you need to find your own roommates * Rental Rate per Person - how much will it cost you to live there * Availability - is the apartment available for the month in which you need to move TALK TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY Before taking a tour, students should talk to their parents, friends and anyone else involved in their decision making process. They should make a list of what is most important to them: budget, location, size of the apartment, how many bedrooms they are looking for, etc. From this list, they will be able to tell if the apartments online match their particular needs. Apartments are a lot like cars; as you increase your budget, you are able to get better amenities. So to find the best apartment, it is important to start off by asking parents what the budget is. SCHEDULE A TOUR OF THE APARTMENT After finding a few Gainesville apartments that seem like a good fit, the next step is to schedule a tour. Tours typically take less than 15 minutes, and they are free. Plus touring is the best way to check out the actual apartment (though most apartment complex websites are honest, some are highly inaccurate). You should bring along anyone who is involved in the decision making process: friends, potential roommates, and parents (if they are in town). Always bring your checkbook and photo ID or drivers license, so that you can put down a security deposit or make a reservation if you find that you like the apartment after your tour. QUESTIONS TO ASK DURING THE APARTMENT TOUR 1) How many bedrooms does the apartment have, and are the bedrooms big enough for your furniture? 2) How many bathrooms does the apartment have? Will you need to share? 3) How does the parking around the apartment work? 4) How will you get to your UF classes from the apartment? Be forewarned. Most apartment complexes try to make the Gainesville bus system sound great-- but RTS is terrible! For apartment near the Mall or off of 20th Ave, plan on leaving your apartment about 1 hour before class begins every day, to ensure that you get there on time. Between walking from the apartment to your bus stop, then waiting for the bus, then taking the bus ride (and all of its stops), then walking from The Hub on UF campus campus to the actual classroom, you are talking about a 45 trip. Plus, if the bus is late or if the bus is full, you will need some extra leeway. Because of this commute issue and because there is no on-campus parking (except for ParkNRide) for UF students who live off campus, most students try to live in houses and apartments close to UF, so that they can walk to class. Apartments that are walking distance to UF classes are a bit more money than those further away, but think about it: youll be saving up to 2 hours per day in commute time.
