Working women, especially single working women are consciously looking out for peaceful and safe areas where they can live, work and entertain. Here are certain factors you should take into considerations to find a peaceful and a convenient place to hideout.
• Safety is perhaps the single most important factor that governs the choice of home for any woman. Whether single or married, working or not, women are unlikely to negotiate on the safety of their neighbourhood.
• Proximity is one another important factor to be considered. Proximity is nothing but nearness. The place which you choose should be nearer to schools, Shopping malls, Workplace, etc.
• Transit is one among the most important factor to be considered. The place should have proper transit facilities including Buses and Trains.
• Pricing: Last, but not the least, the pricing of apartments, both capital values and rentals, plays a significant role.
