Reasons to Move to a House from an Apartment

ReasonstoMovetoahouse

Here at Noah’s Ark, we’re advocates of the urbane appeal of living in an apartment, but sometimes a house is just much better for particular families – which is why we prepared this brief blog entry composed of a list detailing the various reasons that you might want to choose to move from a city apartment to a traditional house.

Your Family is Growing

You might be starting your family and considering that your one bedroom apartment simply isn’t much space. Even a single child in a tiny apartment can be a stretch, but multiple children requires a bit of space for both the physical and mental well being of the children – as well as the parents. You’re going to want to have space for the kids to run around, and space to be by yourself to get a little peace and quiet. When you factor in the ultimate luxury of having your own laundry inside your home, living in a house just sounds better and better.

 

The Outdoors

Having a yard can be an ultimate peaceful pleasure and luxury. You might consider gardening, design outdoor get togethers or barbecues, or even adopting a dog. Having a back or front yard can give your family fantastic space and breathing room, and is almost guaranteed to improve your quality of life.

 

You’re sick of the Rent Rat Race

Paying rent can be a constant cycle, and it can be a major relief to pay off a mortgage on a home, knowing that you want to stay there indefinitely, or at least for a long, long while, and won’t have to worry about scrambling to make rent payments every month. It can be a fantastic investment – in both the financial, mental, and spiritual senses.

 

Customizability

You have more freedom to paint and decorate your home than you do in an apartment where you need to fit into the parameters allowed by your landlord. Living in a house allows you to customize and upgrade the layout, adding or subtracting walls or rooms, switching lighting, creating brand new use-specific areas, or really anything your creative mind can think of!

 

Entertainment

You have way more room to entertain guests inside a house rather than an apartment. Now, you can allow guests to comfortably stay over inside a guest room, rather than on a couch or an air mattress. You could even use the extra space to throw rolicking house parties – or go the other route and use the extra space as an office or hobby room.

 

Working at Home

Working from home is a fantastic opportunity, and it can be much easier and more pleasurable to do inside a house rather than an apartment. Working from a house allows you peace from the noise of the interior, neighbors, and city around you – and help you avoid the problem of having to bicker over a designated work area, as well as the distractions of all the piled-together nearby accoutrements of the average sized apartment, like dishes inside the kitchen, nearby roommates, or the noise of a television.
