Buying Apartments is perhaps the biggest investment you will be making in your lifetime, but it is shrouded in myths and misconceptions. From having a fixed ‘right age’ to buy Apartments to our misunderstandings about buying Apartments are too many. Before investing in Apartments, it is important to clear any misgivings you may have about it. As a real estate company, Metropolitan real estate debunked the top 5 Apartment buying myths so your Apartment buying experience is hassle-free.

Myth 1: Renting is better than buy Apartment

One of the biggest myths surrounding buying an Apartment is that renting is better than buying. Most Ethiopians believe buying an Apartment would weigh down their spending capacity. Real estate purchases are performing asset investments in Ethiopia. A home either can generate rental income in the long term or help cut down rent in the short term. Homebuyers can also enjoy long-term capital appreciation. Metropolitan Real Estate has multiple ongoing projects with a high return on investment.

Myth 2: Investments in the center of Addis Ababa are Expensive

Investing in the center of Addis Ababa comes with its advantages. Conveniences, connectivity, proximity to the workplace are all pros of investing in the city center. The appreciation rate of Apartments downtown of Addis Ababa is also very high. Just because the price tag is low and the plot size is big doesn’t mean you have to buy a property very far from the city center. The main thing in this point is how many years will it take to return the investment cost? Metropolitan Real Estate Apartments took a maximum of 7 years of return on investment. Take a look at our latest ongoing projects Metropolitan Tower Apartments, Metropolitan Central Tower Apartments, Westview Standard Apartments.

Myth 3: Real estate investments are risky

Almost every type of investment comes with its own set of risks. Starting a business, buying shares, or real estate investment, all come with their risks. However, real estate is one of the safest investments you could make and the associated risks are much lesser compared to its counterparts. It is a given that before you invest you should thoroughly investigate the builder, the project you are investing in, the deeds and documents, and costs.
