Buying a home is already the largest single purchase many will every make in their lifetime, without taking into account all of the accoutrements that come with furnishing and decorating it. We’ve seen a number of businesses offering extras along with properties in recent times, including Canada’s World Housing, which builds a home for a family in need for every property bought. Now, Brazil’s newly-designed Huma Klabin construction is offering every resident a complementary fold-up bike.
Located in São Paulo, the building will be situated close to a number of cycle paths that make travel by bike a feasible option for those buying an apartment in the area. Anyone who buys an apartment in the Huma Klabin complex is offered a free fold-up bike worth USD 1,000. The company’s aim is to help reduce pollution and carbon emissions in the city, as well as help promote more healthy and active lifestyles. The building also features a number of communal features such as a gym and pool, as well as up to 70 bicycle racks.
The Huma Klabin complex has not yet begun construction, house hunters can contact the developers for more information. Are there other free gifts companies could offer to help improve residents’ quality of life when moving into a new home?
