The COVID-19 pandemic forced individuals to adapt to the new standard and this didn’t just end at changing lifestyles. Among homebuyers, the very definition of luxury housing has been redefined with a change in perception. Now people prefer to buy apartments with wellness amenities rather than a blanket of high-flying features. Health, Sanitation, fitness, and lifestyle are among the top priorities of contemporary home buyers seeking luxury residences.
The demand for facilities like gyms, sauna, jogging, sunbathe, and cycling tracks, and meditation areas are higher than ever, with people trying to boost their fitness and immunity. Moreover, with work from home being the new norm, people are trying to keep themselves in good shape when remaining at home. Fitness and lifestyle facilities had become a common feature in luxury housing projects in recent years. However, the developers are now putting special attention on them.
With homebuyers wanting to lead a healthier lifestyle, organic living has become a very popular trend. In order to provide residents with fresh produce, some of the modern luxury housing estates now come with facilities for organic farming, apiculture, horticulture, etc. The developers have also linked up with multiple cultivation agencies in some of these projects. If the home buyers wish, they can hire the services of these agriculture agencies to get the farming and other activities are taken care of.
Gardens and open spaces have always been popular criteria among homebuyers. Especially in the metro cities with a fast-paced lifestyle, home-seekers look for a residence where they can enjoy a break from the noise and pollution. At a time when people are staying home due to the COVID 19, the demand for such green spaces has considerably risen. The developers are often integrating their projects with themed gardens rich in flora and greenery. The most famous luxury projects feature walking trails, seating areas & other amenities that help the residents enjoy the green surroundings to the fullest.
That being said, it is very natural that the preference of location of home buyers has also undergone considerable changes. Many are searching for properties in the outskirts of major towns in order to enjoy a truly relaxing lifestyle. Although these suburbs give a quiet atmosphere away from the city’s bustle and a comparatively higher degree of green cover, they now boast well-developed infrastructure. In beautiful areas, such as hills and valleys, some developers have come up with residential projects where residents can enjoy excellent views and a clean environment.
The advent of the new normal has brought a new era for Indian real estate, with homebuyers’ preferences shifting to add value to their lifestyle. In the long run, the trend is expected to rise, with demand and supply for such projects constantly on the rise.
