Some Pre-Purchase Basics About Buying a Strata Apartment

Article Contributed by Francesco Andreone

Buying a strata apartment is a popular option for many people looking for a low-maintenance and convenient lifestyle. It’s often the property choice for first-time buyers because they don’t need more space [yet], they can be conveniently located, and, they sometimes have useful shared facilities like pools, gyms, etc. Plus, strata apartments are usually cheaper than houses in the same locations.


Strata apartments are also popular as residential real estate investments.


However, before buying a strata apartment, it's important to understand what strata property ownership entails, what you can expect as a strata apartment owner and some useful things to check.


So here I outline a few basics about buying and owning a strata apartment, covering the key considerations and steps you need to take.
