Why Brisbanties want lock-up-and-leave apartments

It’s impossible to ignore the transition happening in the Brisbane property market right now. No longer are large Queenslander homes with sprawling backyards what a substantial chunk of buyers are looking for. As well as the general shift towards apartments, the Brisbane property market is also experiencing a dramatic rise in inner-city apartments, particularly those you can “lock and leave”, as they’re snapped up by buyers choosing to downsize.

So what are the benefits of a “lock and leave” apartment, and what exactly does that mean? Lock-up-and-leave apartments are perfect for buyers searching for added apartment building security and are a dream come true for those who like to travel frequently (that’s everyone, right?). A lock-up-and-leave property offers a flexible, low-maintenance lifestyle in a secure complex. These residences have stylish living spaces in a central location and appeal not only to downsizers but young professionals, corporate couples, first-home buyers and empty nesters too.

In terms of the added security, this can take the form of keyless entry, secure parking and 24/7 on-site management. Banyan Tree Residences in Kangaroo Point offers all of these features, as well as the ultra-luxury, jet-set lifestyle that lock-up-and-leave buyers are searching for. Apartments at Banyan Tree Residences really do represent hassle-free living in every sense of the phrase. For those downsizing, living at Banyan Tree Residences means much less time needs to be put into the maintenance of your property, leaving more time for living.

Whether you’re headed towards retirement or not, travel sparks something special within us all. So why not do it as often as you can? It’s an opportunity to experience a different culture, see the world through a brand new lens, eat, drink, dance and adventure on foreign soil. Imagine doing all of that, with the comfort of knowing your home is safe and secure for your return. Banyan Tree Residences truly understands this. That’s why, as well as a perfectly secure, low-maintenance apartment and a hotel-style concierge service, they also give buyers a full week of free accommodation in any of their Banyan Tree resorts around the world, once a year for the first five years.

As well as the freedom and flexibility to travel whenever you want, lock-up-and-leave apartments also mean that your everyday living is also worry-free. A central location means you are in close proximity to amenities, eliminating morning commutes and long drives. Located in Kangaroo Point, the Banyan Tree Residences is a perfect example of this. Being just a stone’s throw from Brisbane CBD, an easy journey to South Bank and the stunning Kangaroo Point Cliffs literally by your front door means every day will start to feel like a holiday. The one, two and three-bedroom apartments on the riverside also have a slew of five-star resort-style facilities for buyers to enjoy including a stunning rooftop pool and an on-site spa, meaning the relaxation doesn’t have to stop when you return from a holiday.

With outstanding apartment building security, luxury finishes and facilities, on-site management and a convenient location, it’s no wonder downsizers and other buyers alike are clamouring over the riverfront apartments at Banyan Tree Residences. With more developers offering the lock-up-and-leave lifestyle in Brisbane, it’s clear this transition is more than just a trend; it’s here to stay.
