Reasons To Buy Or Rent An Apartment

Apartment :

Apartments are a result of concentration of population in cities and metros where open spaces have become scarce. A number of dwelling units are made one upon another and also side by side to save space and are called apartments. The person who makes these dwelling units is the landlord and he leases out an apartment to the person who wishes to live in it. You have a right to live as long as you wish in an apartment but the property remains in the name of the landlord. 

Apartment vs House:

  • Both house and apartment are dwelling units.
  • You own a house where as you get an apartment on lease.
  • House has more privacy than an apartment. 
  • In an apartment you may have to share amenities that are common with others.

   Advantages Of Renting An Apartment:

  • When you rent, you don’t have to worry about things like moving the lawn, repairing a leaky roof, buying a new hot water heater, or most other things that require maintenance.
  • Renting can also be the first step towards buying a home, since you can get to know the area before you buy a house. It would be heartbreaking to buy a house, then a few months later, wish that you lived a few miles away.
  • If you move frequently, or you are  unsure of how long you will be staying in the area, renting could be the better choice.
  • People in the military are often better off with renting an apartment, since they could be stationed somewhere else at any time

Advantages Of Buying an Apartment:

 An  Apartment can increase in value, which means you can gain more if you decide to put it on the market. There are no ups and downs in your payment if you take out a fixed-rate mortgage.It will remain constant through the life of the loan. When you buy a home, you are free to do what you like with the interiors.

Buying a ready-to-move-in flat requires you to pay a lump-sum amount over a period of time. This means you pay as you start living in the house. Cost of purchasing a flat depends on the location. Living in an Apartment can be much more cost efficient when compared to an independent villa or home. In the case of Apartments, since space is carefully squeezed there would be less number of electrical points compared to independent homes. Lesser the points lesser would be the bill. So if we overall compare the bills of an apartment and an independent house, Apartment always has an upper hand by saving money.
