Factors To Consider While Choosing the Right Floor In A High- Rise

The population in cities is rising but the space to accommodate the growing number of the population remains limited. At this time, vertical living is becoming the norm for most cities in India. With the evolving needs of Indian home buyers, buying preferences are changingn and new parameters are added while finalizing the home. However, selecting the right floor becomes quite perplexing and many a time buyers are confused as to which floor is the best for home.
We were looking for an affordable residential complex in Joka but couldn’t decide on which floor should we buy the home. High or low, both have their own advantages and
disadvantages. So, we started weighing all the factors involved before settling in our
residential apartment in Pailan.

Here is a parallel comparison of living in the upper and lower floors:

1. Serenity:

If the residential tower is located close to a scenic place, the higher floors will offer a better view. Residing on top floors allows you to cherish an uninterrupted view of the city skyline.

Also, residing in higher floors minimize street noise and usual cacophony of the city and will provide you an exclusive lifestyle in serenity. It’s an empowering feeling to enjoy a hot cuppa overlooking an amazing view outside. If you want to feel ‘top of the world’ in your own home, go for top floors.

2. Security & privacy:

Ground floor apartments can pose a higher risk of criminal activity and break-ins than apartments on higher levels. In congested areas, living on the lower floors might not be safe.

But, if you live in a gated community, crime is less likely to occur as there will be on-site security equipment and personnel. If you wish to avoid unwanted intrusion, the higher floor is suitable for you.

3. Energy consumption:

Upper floors are generally flooded with ample sunlight and wind. This results in reduced usage of artificial lights. At the same time, abundant sunlight drenching your apartment will lead to heat rises. Eventually, the electricity bill in summer is higher on the upper floors as the residents are dependent mostly on air-conditioners. Lower floor units do not get much sunlight as they are flanked by tall buildings on their sides. Thus, ground floors become relatively cooler in summers and help you to cut down utility bills.

4. Accessibility:

In case of emergency evacuation living up high can prove to be a disadvantage. From lower apartments, it’s easy to quickly get in and out of the apartment, giving better access to parks, the swimming pool and clubhouse. Whether it’s bringing in the groceries or a new piece of furniture, owning homes in lower floors makes it a lot easier. For senior citizens, it’s better to own home on lower floors.

5. Rental Returns:

According to property surveys, lower floors command better rental returns, as Indians generally have an affinity for staying closer to the ground. If you are buying a home for investment purpose, better buy it on ground floors. Less utility bills and easy accessibility might be the reason for this preference.
