You should also take note of the interior designs and finishes, the amenities and space too. You have to make sure you work with a certified and experienced luxury real estate agent to guide you in the buying process.

Tips for Investing in Luxury Real Estate
Decide what you want to achieve through your investment before carrying out the transaction. Do you want long term or short term returns? This would prevent you from making hasty transactions out of desperation.
Be deliberate about location. Location is a very important factor in real estate and should not be left to chance. Whatever property you’re to invest in should be located in an area or neighborhood that suits the luxury property. Nobody wants to rent a luxury apartment that is not easily accessible.
