Advantages of Apartment Living in the City

Apartment? Condominium? House? Deciding which option is the best for you and evaluating all available information to come to a conclusion is crucial when selecting your next home. When considering a place to live, city apartments are unique in the sense that you can have the cozy feeling of a home, while being minutes away from some of your favorite shacks and shops. To help you decide if apartment living is the best choice for you, there are three advantages of city apartments to take note of.
 
1. Proximity
Living in the city certainly has its perks. Most apartments are located in cities for convenience, and with a wide array of sweet spots and unique shops, you are sure to find something you love. Our apartments in Berkley and Royal Oak are located just minutes from the downtown streets. When you need to run your errands, you don’t have to take your car. A night out on the town is no longer a thing you may dread. It is easy to immerse yourself in the vibrancy of the city when you live only minutes from it. 
 
2. Financial Sense
Apartment living is usually cheaper than a house mortgage and comes with the perk of having some utilities included in rent like water or garbage pick up. When you own a home, you get all of the responsibility that comes with it like paying for property taxes and any maintenance that may be necessary. If your water heater breaks in your apartment, the money to fix it isn’t coming out of your pocket. As an additional benefit, all of our apartments come with free high-speed internet/wifi connection and air conditioning.
 
3. Close Community 
When you move into an apartment, you will have the opportunity to meet people you may not have had the opportunity to meet otherwise. The person living next to you could potentially become your new best friend. The idea of house sitting when you go on a trip becomes much easier to manage when you have someone that shares a wall with you. With pet-friendly apartments and parks for children and friends to enjoy nearby, you can rest assured that you will have made the right choice when settling in with Metropolitan Flats.
