Some would argue that buying an old penthouse seems like a better choice compared to buying a brand new penthouse in a newly developed residential compound. You would change your mind after reading the following facts in our opinion. Brand new residential projects have a special modern life atmosphere. They have social facilities such as swimming pools, gyms, shopping malls, and restaurants, etc. all of these facilities are available for compound occupiers. Furthermore; the security, privacy and the international atmosphere provided by such compounds can’t be found in an ordinary property. Pricewise it can be said that compound prices are relatively similar to ordinary property prices. Overall, the value gained in complexes is well worth a slightly higher price.
