The true benefits of downsizing to an apartment
Space is often something we crave when looking for a property, yet sometimes it may not be all it’s cracked up to be. There are many reasons why people move; it may be financial, and you may find that in your preferred location apartments provide you with the best options. But for others, finance doesn’t factor into the decision at all and can be more for practical reasons. The thought of less maintenance, more security and a community may be tempting you, no matter what stage in life you’re at. This is why at The Apartment Company we want to open your eyes to the true benefits of downsizing to an apartment.
Reason for a good purge
We all surround ourselves with more belongings then we really need; when downsizing you will more than likely need to make some decisions on figuring out what’s essential. Families will often find themselves drowning in toys at one time or another, which can make keeping bedrooms tidy a challenge. When living in a smaller space you are conscious about every purchase, as each new thing will be something extra to find a home for. Changing your expectations and being strategic in how you organise and store things can be liberating, providing you with a space that caters for a new and more minimalist way of living.
Feeling safe and secure is something we expect from whatever property we rent or buy, but an apartment offers a different level of security that a home cannot provide. Being surrounded by others can be reassuring if you live on your own, if you wish to travel, or if, due to work commitments, you have to leave your apartment empty for some time. There is also the reduced need to maintain your property, giving you more time to enjoy living and spending time with those you love.
Brings you closer
One thing that many families tell us again and again is that apartment living brings them closer together. In a large home with different floors it’s easy to find separate spaces to do things, but a smaller space forces you to spend time together which, as a result, brings you closer. It can feel like a big transition but gradually you will find your rhythm and, as such, your family will benefit as a result. It isn’t just those inside your apartment you’ll be closer too, you will find that you’ll get to know your neighbours faster, helping you to settle in your new home quicker.
