Ramsey - Live City first home buyer

Melbourne software and IT professional, Ramsey Samad, knows all too well how difficult it can be to sift through hundreds of apartment listings online when looking for to buy your first home.

After renting an apartment in Doncaster, Ramsey decided it was time to save his pennies and look for something more permanent closer to the city.

Looking through hundreds of online apartment listings, Ramsey settled on a list of his top 12 favourites, with Live City sitting at the top thanks to competitive pricing.

“It’s hard to tell the differences between apartments by just looking at photos online so I decided to book an inspection at Live City,” he said.

“On my way to the inspection, I was driving down Ballarat Road and noticed all of the signage. I was very impressed with how it looked.

“The building itself is brand new and the design really stands out. This is something that’s really important to me.

“The price was also really affordable compared to other apartments which works perfectly for me because I bought it on my own.”

Having lived in an older apartment building, Ramsey was keen to move into a new apartment in a building with lots of amenities and space to entertain guests.

“On my second inspection, I was taken up to the Sky Deck. The view up there is great and if you want to have a large group of guests over you can book this space out,” he said.

“It’s ideal for me to have those spaces when I want to invite people over.

“The design of my apartment is really unique too. There are some features that you don’t often see in apartments in Australia which I think is pretty neat.”

After travelling for more than two hours every day to get to and from work in his old apartment, Ramsey says his new home saves him hours of commuting each week, which is worth a lot more than money.

“The tram stop is just downstairs from my apartment so it’s really quick and easy to get to work,” he said.

“I used to spend almost an hour and a half travelling each but now it only takes me 30 minutes to get to work. That’s just priceless to me.”
