Apartments vs Condos

Getting right to it, when you’re about to move into a busy area in the city, you’ll only have two living options to choose between; condos or apartments. You can choose to live in a house as well if you’re a big fan of traveling long distances to the city to work every morning; which, quite frankly, most of us aren’t. A lot of people would look for apartments first and condos later when they’re moving into a city like Toronto and unless you have a big family, we don’t get why you would do this.

Apartments are charming but in a lot of cases, they’re impractical as compared to condos. For starters, when you live in an apartment you’re going to have to pay a lot of rent and since the apartment isn’t yours, you’ll have to get certain permissions before you can make any kind of changes to it. In a condo, you’re the owner and you can do whatever you want in your living space and if you have good ideas that can benefit the entire condo building then you could also speak to the directors and make a difference.

The apartment life is also a pretty solitary life since everyone living in the building typically like to keep to themselves. In buildings like Edge Tower condos, everyone likes socialising and look out for each other as a community. The fact that a lot of big condo buildings have in house swimming pools, gyms and places to eat make it easy for people to get to know each other.

Basically, you get to own where you live and you get to a live a social life as well; can’t say tha same about apartments now can you?
