Plus fewer bugs and better views. I agree, someone has been pulling the wool over DanShaku's eyes..sundaymorningstaple wrote:That's interesting. As this is a nation of highrise buildings, you would think the locals would realize that it's noisier the higher you go. NOT!
It's because the traffic & construction noises are filtered out at higher levels that the prices of units the higher you go are the highest with the exception of the top floor penthouse which is astronomical (which is strange considering how noisy it's supposed to be).
Sorry folks, somebody is pulling you legs. It's much quieter at the upper levels unless the wind is causing a whistling/howling sound. If that is the case then the builders didn't pay the Feng Shui man enough money.
Seriously, it is quieter the higher up you go, not the reverse.

You may find allot of the appts you have shortlisted are no longer available when you get here but at least you have an idea of the development you are interested in.
I think the agents use allot of 'ghost' adverts to get you to call. You will find a great apt in your budget on the web then when you call you find that it's gone - oh shock horror. They will then ask you about your requirements then call you or take you viewings which are at least $1-1.5k above the budget you've told them. Agh!!
