Why You Should Move Into A Home Versus An Apartment

Moving to A Home

When you are first starting out, apartment living is a perfect place to call home. There are many benefits to apartment living which include: pool & gym amenities, no yard work or maintenance and low rent. However as your priorities change (i.e: starting a family or career) you will want to look for something a little larger and more private. Below are some signs that it may be time to upgrade your living situation.

  1. A Growing Family

If you are in the process of starting a family you will be looking at upgrading your home. Raising a child or multiple children in a small apartment is not an ideal situation. At a certain point your children will need their own rooms or some space to run around and play. You will also need some space for yourself for your own sanity.

  1. Backyard and Outdoor Living Space

Living in an apartment you often times dream of a yard where you can have family and friends over for parties or barbeques. When moving to a home, a backyard is a perfect spot for children to play, a dog to run, or a place where you can plant a garden. You can make it your own place of solace.

  1. Owning Versus Renting

If you are starting a family or a career you are probably thinking of ways to invest for the future. There is no better investment than real estate. Purchasing a home where you build equity is always the best path to take for your future. Now that mortgage rates are low, your mortgage payment may be less than your monthly rent payment. The most important thing about purchasing a home is that it is a place where memories are made and where equity is built for your family.

  1. Decorating Your Home

Whether you are single or married, a home is where you can put your design elements into action. As with most apartment living you are restricted as to what you can do regarding decorating. When you purchase a home the sky’s the limit. From remodeling a kitchen or bath to changing wall colors, fixtures, purchasing new furniture, etc…you have the freedom to do whatever you want in your home.

  1. Larger Living Space

When we were younger, have friends over and letting them sleep on the floor or the couch was acceptable. As you get older, letting family or friends sleep over, you need a guest room where they can stay. Having people sleep on a couch or floor is a bit tacky once you reach a certain age. That is why when you purchase a new home you have the flexibility to convert a bedroom into a guest room for that occasional guest or family member.
