Living in apartment

posted Jul 05, 2016 09:38:27 by KnightShade
I'm planning to move out of the house soon and get my own place. My parents advised me to find a house, though personally I want to try an apartment. Handling a house on myself is probably too much because I also have a busy work, but I've heard that apartments are not ideal living environment and the long-term advantage may not be much. What do you think?

When I first moved out I rented two different apartments. They were okay, but I knew right away that I didn't want to live like that forever. I only rented for about a year and a half before I decided to purchase my own home. I think buying a home is a great idea if you know where you permanently want to live.

I agree with Ophelia. I only rented 2 places and for about a year and a half. It was a nice stepping stone and allowed me to get my credit and savings where I wanted them, so that I could get financing for a home; however, it is definitely not something I would want to do again. Renting is a huge pain because you have to move so often to avoid the annually increasing monthly rent, but also having to move so frequently is exhausting and you never feel like you're "home".

For starting out on your own, and being single, I assume, having an apartment seems to me to be a wise decision at this point in your life. There is plenty of time for you to save up for a house. Most people wait until they are married, but if buying a home for yourself is also for investment purposes, then by all means go for it!

I also think that apartment is ideal if you want to set out on your own. It feels like home but not as complicated to manage, so it's doable for one person. It's usually more flexible because we can easily find one close to the workplace or school to save time. Personally, I think it's a great investment.
