When Buying a Home, Don’t Compromise on Privacy, Go for a Maisonette!

It’s no secret. The demand for property is on the rise in an attempt to meet the increasing requirements of an ever-growing population in our country. Specifically because of this, the type of property that is currently being developed and built is not what it used to be. 
 
The characteristic Maltese house of character and town house are being traded in for tastefully finished apartment blocks that cater for a larger number of home owners. Many people are content with living in an apartment, but others still yearn for the joy that comes from owning a house all to themselves. Town houses are no longer the go-to home option, so they have become quite an expensive venture for those looking to buy into them, but developers have managed to find a loop hole that still manages to accommodate many - maisonettes.

What Exactly is a Maisonette?

Technically speaking, a maisonette is a flat with its own front door; think of it as mid-way between an apartment and a house. They were initially introduced to the property market as an alternative solution to high density lifestyles. Maisonettes provide smaller living spaces with the same kind of privacy that you would enjoy if you were to live in your own house. Their size makes them ideal for small families or couples who are thinking of starting a family soon. Given that this living situation usually provides more space than a flat, it is perfect for those looking to settle in and finding their ideal home without breaking the bank.
What Kind of Price Tag are we Looking at?

Maisonettes are not a popular option with home buyers, but luckily there is a great silver lining. In reality, the word maisonette comes from the French word maison, meaning house; they are literally a small house. A maisonette could be a house found above or below another house, a house above a garage or a shop, but nonetheless, a house. Their wrongly appointed unpopularity means that they will typically have a lower price tag than say, a luxury apartment, but you will probably be getting more!

Will I get Value for Money?

When buying a maisonette, you will also be buying full control over how your home looks; main entrances and stair cases are shared in apartments and if the design is not to your liking, there is very little you can do. A number of maisonettes also come with garages and some form of outdoor space, two areas which do not commonly accompany apartments.
Are they an Ideal Investment Opportunity?

As it provides more privacy and additional space to prospective tenants, maisonettes are more prone to attract people looking for longer lets such as families with kids. These types of long let tenants are also more likely to maintain the property themselves, leaving you with less work. A house always has a better selling point than an apartment, especially if the price is quite affordable. So are maisonettes a good investment opportunity? You tell us.
