If you’re looking to get your own place for yourself or with your family, here are some factors that might reinforce or change your decision.
The smaller condominium units are great if you are living on your own. But there are also bigger ones available if you have a family. The good thing about living in a condominium is the amenities that come with it. What’s not-so-great is that you have to abide by the rules of your buildings which might post some limitations with pets and the like.
Townhouses are ideal homes for families. They provide more privacy and leniency as compared to a condominium. The only downside is that your house looks pretty much like everyone else’s house. Also, even though it has more privacy as compared to a condominium unit, you’d still be living in a community with other families. But it is the best option if you really want a house but can’t quite afford one yet.
Subdivisions are a great place to live in especially if you have kids. It provides you with a protected community where your child can wander, a clubhouse or playground you can use and you’re free to design the architecture of your house as you wish. The only problem is that you’d still have an external factor filtering guests or deliveries which might be a bit of a hassle.
A freestanding house gives you the ultimate privacy. You’re in charge of pretty much everything in your house. You can do whatever you want with the lot you have. The best thing about a freestanding house is that you are not sharing a wall with someone else’s house which gives you the ultimate freedom. The only thing is that you’re only limited to what you can afford or what you can fit within your lot. You will not have the luxury of having amenities available to you at all times.
These are the ups and downs for each type of living space. Consider these factors to ensure that you won’t regret moving into your new home. - Michelle Alyssa Tiu
