Consider these Reasons for Living in an Apartment in Albany

Cost Savings —When considering a rent payment and comparing it to your mortgage, it’s important to factor in the added expenses of owning a home. School and property taxes, insurance, and general upkeep add up quickly. Consider that with apartment living you’re generally paying one price for most of your expenses. Also, the footprint of your living space is often smaller, so any related utility bills will be much cheaper than what you’re used to living in a large house.

Low Maintenance — In a house, if the garbage disposal is acting up or an outlet needs replacing it’s going to cost you time and money. At Albany Lofts at One Broadway, our maintenance staff handles all normal repairs and is available 24-hours a day. Mowing the lawn or shoveling snow in the driveway will be a thing of the past once you’ve settled into apartment living. You can use that extra time to take advantage of all our amenities.

On-site Amenities — Many people choose to make the transition to apartment living because of the extra perks that they don’t have at their house. But most apartment complexes don’t come close to providing the amenities you’ll enjoy at Albany Lofts at One Broadway. In addition to our outdoor pool and fully equipped fitness center, we offer residents a yoga studio, a newly renovated business center, music rooms, and more. Don’t worry about the family dog either. On the grounds, we have three, fenced-in dog runs. Need a longer walk or bike ride? The Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail runs through our backyard on the scenic Hudson River.

Fantastic Features and High-end furnishings — When seniors and empty nesters think about apartment living, what often comes to mind are the austere, cookie-cutter places they lived in decades ago. Our residences don’t sacrifice any of the conveniences people expect to find in a modern home. Albany Lofts living spaces offer features ranging from hardwood floors to granite countertops. With 16-foot vaulted ceilings, even our one-bedroom apartments feel spacious. From a practical standpoint, residents enjoy full-sized washers and dryers, stainless steel appliances and fully equipped kitchens. In a lot of cases, our new residents feel like they’ve upgraded by moving in rather than renovating their former home.

Enjoy a Turn-key Lifestyle — Are you a snowbird? Do you like to travel? If you plan on spending a few of the winter months in a warmer climate or plan to see the world, apartment living is perfect for you. You can lock up and head out of town for a few weeks or months with no worries about security, maintenance, or paying the rent (we can do that online). Don’t worry, we’ll keep an eye on things and we’re sure you’ll be happy to come home to Albany Lofts at One Broadway.

Looking for a new home to start your golden years? The Albany Lofts at One Broadway offer spacious family-friendly apartments near downtown Albany with amenities your family will love. We invite you to take a tour of our building and decide for yourself!
