You are contemplating moving to Bangalore. After scouring through online platforms, checking with some friends, and maybe even visiting a PG in Bangalore, you’ve decided to go with a standalone apartment. The idea of a completely independent space seems exciting, doesn’t it? Not to rain on your excitement, but a house-hunt should be more than just an emotional decision. Also, a standalone apartment might seem an ideal fit in your budget due to lower upfront rent but can turn out to be a compromise in terms of the amenities you can actually access within that price. There are scores of little things to manage once you start living on your own and it would be quite tiring if you spent your time, energy, or money fixing those instead of enjoying your space.
So, if you are looking for an option that balances value and budget, a professionally managed PG can be a cost-effective option, and here’s why:
All-inclusive amenities means no hassles
Be it preparing meals or cleaning up space, a branded PG manages all these for you, taking away the stress of fulfilling daily living needs and arranging each amenity on your own. Some of the managed accommodations offer a wide range of amenities for all your lifestyle needs, like food and housekeeping, laundry services, internet facilities, transportation, and even have some special touches like food vending machines on-premises for that time when you need a quick midnight snack.
Sharing spaces allows distributed rent
Does living in the heart of the city seem like an expensive proposition? Well, it isn’t. You can easily find a comfortable PG in Koramangala which can give you a great balance between privacy (your rooms) and shared common amenities like games and entertainment spaces, beautiful terrace gardens, and more. At branded PG set-ups, you can further have access to common-use facilities like common TV, Wi-Fi, refrigerator, ACs, geysers. Which means you don’t need to spend on procuring these separately. That’s why such branded PGs in Bangalore is not only economical but places where you will love spending time with friendly roommates and enjoy some quality community activities.
No additional utility bills
A standalone apartment might seem like a good proposition, with some even available at a lesser cost. But have you factored in all additional living expenses including utility bills which can make your budget go for a toss? Also, it is quite bothersome to track and pay monthly bills for electricity, water, gas, etc, where any delay may lead to additional charges or cutting off your facilities! With a PG set-up, all these expenses are not your bother.
Social security and community feeling
If you are alone in the city, it is always a good idea to have roommates around, especially in times of emergency. But even more than that, living with a good bunch of people gives you a great opportunity to make friends, network, and grow together. New-age managed accommodations like Stanza Living have set a high bar for PGs in Koramangala, by focusing on engaging community activities – from movie nights and sports competitions to branded deals and events so residents look forward to a rejuvenating time at the end of their hard-working day.
Professionally managed accommodations have become very popular in metros like Bangalore. These concepts are redefining the idea of PGs as a curated, convenient, and economical living space, where residents don’t have to manage daily living hassles. They are definitely posing a stiff challenge to isolated apartments/ standalone flats and should be on top of your search list.
