Are Apartments Better than houses?
The debate between houses and apartments is never too easy because we have a lot of options and advantages when it comes to apartments. While discussing certain things everything has its pros and cons. Same as when we differentiate between houses and apartments, we have the same situation.
Apartments are places where luxury amenities are available at nearby places whereas when it comes to houses, we mostly have to go to the proper place for those amenities and luxuries.
The things which differentiate houses vs Apartments are:
The first and foremost thing that we kept in mind while purchasing is the cost of that thing. Apartments are generally less costly than houses and it provides fewer luxuries than houses. If price or cost is not the matter then we would move toward houses because they provide more facilities and amenities and you can have them whenever you want.
What comes to mind when you are searching for houses and apartments is the location. We mostly search for apartments near me. The location is easily accessible from the markets, schools, and hospitals so you can have that service anytime when required. With the hike in prices in Pakistan, the average class couldn’t get houses easily so you would move towards apartments to have that at a good location.
The maintenance cost in apartments is almost no because you just have to tell the owner of the building about the kind of maintenance. In the case of houses, you have to spend money on the maintenance and upkeep of the house. Being a omeowner entails taking responsibility for all upkeep, repairs, yard work, and associated fees. Even if you hire someone to do it for you, the cost to complete the task is still prohibitive.
Apartments are something that can provide upscale and hard-to-beat amenities. They can provide luxury amenities including gyms, swimming pools, and on-site entertainments avenue. If you build a house, it is difficult for you to provide all those luxury amenities.
Usually, houses are more spacious than apartments and they have a more open and wide area. We have options of building more stories accordingly and building a garden and garage accordingly to our requirements. You can arrange parties and gatherings according to your requirements.
If we compare houses vs apartments then we have more security in houses than in apartments. In apartments, we have our walls connected with the other person we have to share the parking lot with the other person and have no privacy at all as compared to the houses we have our space parking, and secure living.
In-house, we have more security than in apartments. Because in apartments we have combined security or somehow gated security community but in houses, we have the security of our own plus we have gated security in a quality society so we have the advantage of double security.
Most of the buildings don’t allow you to bring or make pets with you in the apartments but this is not for sure because every building has its own SOPs. but when living in the house you have total control so you can easily keep as many pets as you can.
When it comes to selling a property, it would be easier to sell a house because you are the sole owner of your house and you can easily find a buyer for your house. But in the case of apartments, it is not that much easy because you are a part of a shared community and you can’t find a buyer easily.
