Moving to places with swimming pool and playground are alternatives to confinement.
Comfort, leisure and safety – with safety in double action against urban violence and the new coronavirus pandemic – are some of the main qualities of the new residential complexes. Amidst the restrictions in mobility due to social isolation, applied for the containment of Covid-19, the search for this type of residence – be it a condominium of houses or apartments – has grown since last year. According to research by Quinto Andar, a site specialized in moving, there was a 15% increase in the search for residential condominiums.
But what has attracted so much attention from Brazilians for these new residential condominiums? Firstly, we must note the most diverse options for leisure, which make it unnecessary to seek diversion outside the condominium. Among the leisure options offered, we find football fields, multisport courts, playgrounds, playrooms, swimming pools (including, recently, ones with artificial waves in luxury condominiums), gyms, barbecue grills, party halls and even movie theaters.
For this, of course, the residential condominiums must follow the municipal directives for containment of the new coronavirus. That is, the administration of the condominium must establish safety measures against the virus, such as: providing alcohol gel, constant sanitizing of ambiences, trained personnel, as well as establishing schedules for activities, in order to avoid crowding.
Furthermore, the offer of small markets, drugstores, bars and restaurants, as well as beauty salons, are attractive factors for those who are thinking of moving to a condominium with certain types of infrastructure. These options allow those who live there to avoid going to other areas of the city, thus avoiding more crowding.
Still speaking of safety, to complete the range of advantages for those who are undecided about moving to a residential condominium, there is the offer of private security, an important plus in comparison with other types of dwellings. The sense of protection comes from the administration of residential condominiums that have lobby control and safety 24x7, internal and external monitoring systems to control the entry and exit of non-residents, for example. On the downside, those interested must understand that all this infrastructure make this type of dwelling expensive.
