Is an Apartment or House Right for You?


Where you choose to live can affect your whole life. The ability to relax and enjoy yourself at home has a direct impact on how well you can perform outside of the home. So, should you be searching for Athens, OH, apartment rentals or house rentals? We’ve put together a list of important things to consider when making that decision.

  • Yard vs. No Yard - Sometimes you can get lucky with a lease that offers lawn services. If not, it’s up to you whether the lawn maintenance effort is worth having the extra outdoor space.
  • Neighbors Next Door vs. Neighbors Across the Hall - There are positive aspects of both here. Perhaps you like the communal feeling of an apartment, where you can always find a study buddy, or maybe you need your separate space in a house where you can find a peaceful place to hit the books.
  • Sensitivity to Noise - If you’re super-sensitive to noise, you may prefer a house. If the occasional footstep or elevator sound doesn’t bother you, an apartment should work just fine.
  • Price - Sometimes the cost of renting a house can be more than an apartment. Make sure you factor cooling/heating into your decision. A larger place will cost you more.

So, that’s a list of what we think are the most important things to consider when you’re deciding - house or apartment. We’d love to know what your decision is!
