You’re in the market for a new place, but haven’t made that crucial decision yet: rent or buy? There are so many pros and cons to weigh when you’re deciding between the two. One of the best ways to make the decision is to make a list of the pros and cons and look over them frequently. Do this well in advance of needing to make the decision so you can add to the list anytime you think of something else. Talk to your friends and family to get some extra input, but make sure that you’re making the decision for yourself. We’ll get you started with some advantages of apartment living and how it can help simplify your life.
- Only worry about rent – When you’ve got a mortgage, you’ve got a lot of other responsibilities. There’s no maintenance crew to come take care of your problems for free when your toilet runs over or if the water heater breaks down. When you have issues like that at an apartment complex, you never have to worry about paying out of pocket for it. The onsite maintenance staff will take care of these problems promptly.
- All of the amenities without the extra costs – If you buy a home, it’s probably not going to come with gym equipment and a pool that’s maintained by someone else for free year round. You get both of those things when you rent from most places. We’ve got two sparkling pools at Apartments of Wildewood as well as a fitness center that’s available at your leisure. You can get your exercise in or relax by the pool without paying extra fees.
- Community – Our walking paths, playgrounds, and picnic pavilion are all available for your use. You’ll very likely see your neighbors out and about – it gives you the opportunity to meet the people that you live around without having to make a big effort to knock on your neighbor’s door with cookies. You’ll be able to meet people with similar interests in the neighborhood and possibly make lifelong friends.
- No landscaping – All of the landscaping is done for you. All of the maintenance that comes with owning a house, including planting and maintaining trees and flowers, is taken care of for you. You still get to live surrounded by the beauty of nature without having to spend your summer mowing in 90+ degree heat and humidity. Spend your weekend with your family or laying by the pool instead of worrying about how your yard looks.
