6 Key location features to be on the lookout for when buying a new property

By Daveena Kaur

When buying a new property, it is always important to be on the lookout for important facilities within the neighbourhood itself

Without these conveniences present to make life more seamless, things can become hectic and out of control. These are 6 key facilities to look for in the vicinity of your property.

Public Transport


In the 21st century, society relies a lot on public transport such as LRT’s, MRT’s, KTM’s and buses. Purchasing or renting a property that is in close proximity to a mode of public transport can cut travel time significantly as well as decrease time spent waiting in traffic congestion.



In the event of an emergency, having safe and reliable medical centres near your neighbourhood can easily save a life. Living with children, medically infirm people, and older adults can be made more comfortable knowing that there is a hospital nearby.


Part and parcel of cutting down on travel time includes having easy access to major highways. This saves time spent in traffic congestion, internal roads, and inclement weather. The majority of the developers prioritise connectivity to major townships via highways to streamline the journey. Properties built with connectivity and efficiency in mind have the potential to appeal to more people from various other areas.



Strong societies are built upon individuals and groups who are educated and ambitious. Having educational institutions within the neighbourhood can encourage youths and adults to become inspired to pursue an education. This benefits society as a whole, having well-educated adults are the foundation and the backbone of becoming a developed nation. Properties with educational institutions in the vicinity can encourage growth and community advancement.

Retail malls, convenience stores, and shopping complexes are some of the most important facilities to have within a neighbourhood. This can make living in a neighbourhood far more comfortable and provide residents with ease of mind. There will be few concerns about grocery runs or emergency food outages at home when there is a one-stop shop for everything nearby.



Living in an environment surrounded by lush greenery, flourishing vegetation, and an abundance of flora can be beneficial to one’s health in many ways. Regardless of age, living amongst nature – in properties that are nature-oriented and surrounded by gardens – such as on waterfront properties, have been proven to help people lead healthier lives.
