How to Choose The Right Amenities for Your House

Jan 23, 2023
GST Rate on Real Estate, Flat Purchase in India – An Ultimate Guide!

One of the most crucial choices to make when looking to buy a home is selecting the appropriate set of house amenities. Choosing high-quality residential real estate requires careful consideration of the list of amenities provided by the builder. Amenities are features that increase the appeal of residential units, such as location, utilities, parking space, etc. They significantly enhance residents' and homebuyers' satisfaction and pleasure.

When describing their ideal home to a real estate agent, many first-time buyers just have a general list of needs and goals in mind. They lack a thorough understanding of all the available list of amenities. Therefore, we have identified the top six facilities that your ideal home must have.

Amenities and The Influence On Homebuyers

If you’re selling your home, be it an independent bungalow or a singular residence in a housing society, you must ensure that you run the list of amenities by your homebuyer. The influence amenities have on homebuyers can be to the extent that they can accept or reject your proposal on the basis of such. People look for basic and premium amenities at their residence today to avail of luxury living at a convenient routine. It saves their time and effort since they do not need to go outside the premises to take a break from their routine lifestyles.

List of Amenities Provided By Builders

One of the best things you can do is to have a handy list of specific amenities and qualities that your future home must have, regardless of whether you search for your home independently or through an agency.

Today, we'll go over the top 6 amenities that, regardless of home type, are required for any project and must be checked off your list:

Power Backup

If you are purchasing real estate in India, power backup is one of the non-negotiable facilities. There is no denying that power failures can disrupt your daily routine at home. Even while 24-hour power backup is becoming standard, some builders still only provide power backup for common areas. Verify this with the builder before committing to any project; otherwise, you may find yourself having to pay more money afterwards.


While high rise buildings can manage the issue quite effectively, getting to your flat without a lift is impossible. For wheelchair users and other non-ambulant building users, as well as for the vertical transfer of goods, lifts can be crucial for providing vertical circulation, especially in residential buildings.

Water Supply

A basic requirement of humans is a steady supply of water round the clock. The ample water supply greatly enhances the area's sanitation. There are fewer opportunities for water-borne illnesses to spread, saving lives. Therefore, before selecting any additional apartment amenities, you should confirm with the list of amenities provided by the builder that your apartment building has a constant water supply throughout the day.

Security Services

People give a lot of thought to an area's safety when choosing a home. When purchasing a home, buyers take into account security measures including alarms, fences, deadbolt locks, CCTV cameras, and security guards. It is vital in today's society, where many families have both parents working and children living at home by themselves.

Parking Space

Covered parking is a significant factor while selecting an apartment. Make sure the builder is providing a garage in the apartment complex for keeping your vehicles safe before finalising the sale. If your family has more than one car, you can also inquire about the cost and availability of additional parking.

Gymnasiums/Sports Clubs

Nowadays, a gymnasium is a prerequisite for practically all real estate projects. Most people now routinely engage in some kind of physical activity. Redevelopment builders in India are now required to provide leisure spaces like a children's play area, swimming pool, gym, tennis courts, etc., for an improved standard of living. Sports clubs are another important inclusion in the set of house amenities.


Hectic work schedules have increased stress levels, congested traffic conditions, and rising pollution levels, all of which contribute to a very stressful and chaotic way of life. Homebuyers want to live in a place that relaxes their minds and lowers their stress levels; homes with ample space and the necessary amenities offer the ideal solution. So have the above list close at hand for reference as you look for your new home.
