The modern large apartment building emerged in the early 20th century with the incorporation of elevators, central heating, and other conveniences that could be shared in common by a building’s tenants. Apartments for the well-to-do began to offer other amenities such as leisure facilities, delivery and laundry services, and communal dining rooms and gardens. The multistory apartment house continued to grow in importance as crowding and rising land values in cities made one-family homes less and less practicable in parts of many cities. Much government-subsidized, or public, housing has taken the form of apartment buildings, particularly for the urban elderly and working classes or those living in poverty. Apartment-block towers also were erected in large numbers in the Soviet Union and other countries where housing construction was the responsibility of the state.
Parallel to buying a home, apartment rentals make great short-term options. Deciding to buy a home is a life long dream but you have to live somewhere while you prepare to make that dream come true. Whether you are working on credit, saving money or mentally preparing for the responsibility of owning a home, an apartment is the best interim option.
So far we have discussed money savings from rent, lack of need to maintain the property and, well, that’s it. The lack of need to maintain property is not only a financial windfall but also a stress reliever. Homeownership comes with a lot of headaches and issues and deciding to rent will help you avoid these types of setbacks. Instead of using the “rainy day” fund to fix the boiler, it can be used for a much-needed vacation to a tropical island.
The financial benefits discussed here are gateways to our future. While we endure less burden and responsibility while renting, this is the opportune time to invest into your future. By placing the money saved into a “rainy day” account, this can be the beginning of a brighter financial outlook.
Making the life decision as to where you rest your head every night and live your life during the day can be a daunting task to say the least. A final conclusion of this magnitude requires clear thought and concise evaluation. The number one benefit of living in an apartment is the financial aspect of renting. Rent is generally cheaper than a mortgage. In addition to an overall lower monthly payment, other financial components such as upkeep and utilities are generally lower because of the smaller space and the overall responsibility of a landlord/owner versus a tenant.
