5 Reasons You Should Live in an Apartment – As Opposed to Living in a House

For a long time, people used to believe that living in a house was better than living in an apartment as they tend to be cramped and communal. However, with the advancement of technologies, apartments have gone on to be the epitome of modern living and here's why you should choose to live in one.


Easy Maintenance

At an apartment the ease of maintenance is paramount. There's almost nothing you will have to do to maintain the apartment as that is the responsibility of the apartment block owners. This is a far cry from being a homeowner which comes with a long to-do list of responsibilities over repairing and maintaining the inside of the house, the plumbing, yard work and all the costs that go into these different tasks.
Whereas if you are living in an apartment, you don't have to worry about replacing your broken kitchenware, fixing leaks on the roof or shovelling snow. If there are any issues with your apartment, all you have to do is call the apartment complex staff and inform them and they will have it fixed for you.


A Grand Investment

While initially, it seems like apartment renting costs higher than a property mortgage you need to step back and look at the big picture. Owning a home is not just about a mortgage but there are other costs factored in, including the above-mentioned maintenance costs, insurance, extra incurring fees of all kinds and the down payment. There's also a significantly higher utility bill cost if you consider the amount of space that a house takes in comparison to an apartment.
You will be only making a deposit fee when you move to a new apartment and there are no other real expenses apart from your rent. This means your utility bills will be handled too. So you will be spending at the beginning but it will be an investment that will pay you back almost immediately.


Increased Safety

If safety is paramount to you, especially in the city then you should be looking at apartments over houses as they come with their own security team and security measures which are maintained and carried out without you having to worry yourself about it. Especially with the recent surge in great Colombo apartments, the complexes come with controlled access, security camera, secure gates and security guards as well as fire protection. It's especially a great option if you are living alone.


Great Amenities

Thanks to technological and architectural masterpieces like Cinnamon Life which continues to redefine the Colombo skyline, you will find all amenities including state-of-the-art kitchenettes, 24-hour security, gym and swimming pool facilities, restaurants, cafés and medical assistance all in one place. It will be just like living in a hotel, but the holiday never ends.


The Gift of Time

Something you wouldn't notice immediately, but when the time spent maintaining your home has been delegated to someone else, you will find that you have more time for yourself and this is a very valuable asset that you can spend however you want, leading to an enriched lifestyle.
