It took an extensive brainstorming session, but my team of me and me, came up with the Top 6 reasons that living in an apartment ROCKS! Schultz won’t be asking me any more dumb questions….wait…yeah right! It’s Schultz, he always asks dumb questions.

What’s so wonderful about apartment living??!??!?! I’ll tell you what’s so wonderful:

1) NO LAWN!!!– This is by far the number one reason to live in an apartment. You have no yard to mow. You’ll never have to pull weeds. You’ll never have to worry about taking care of a fire ant problem. You don’t have to waste water on the lawn to keep your grass green. No raking leaves, etc, etc, etc…HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!?!?!

2) Freedom!!!– There’s so much more freedom in an apartment. You have the freedom to move anywhere you’d like at the end of your lease. You aren’t locked into a 15, 20, or a 30 year mortgage. It’s an obvious perfect situation for someone who likes to live footloose and fancy free.

3) The Benefits of a Pool without the Work– This is my favorite. At apartments, you get the full use of their pool and deck areas, but never have to worry about the upkeep. With a pool at your home, YOU have to skim for leaves, YOU have to check the chemicals, YOU have to do all the work. In an apartment you can kick back and let the apartment management take care of that for YOU!

4) It’s Cheaper – All in all and across the board, renting an apartment can be much cheaper every month than paying a mortgage. Plus your electricity bill is cheaper. There is no lawn to water, so your water bill is cheaper. It’s just plain cheaper.

5) Maintenance – In a home, if your toilet breaks, refrigerator runs, sink leaks, door falls off it’s hinges, develop a pest problem, or any number of the possible things that can happen happens, you have to find a way to take care of the problem yourself. In an apartment, all you have to do is let the apartment management know and they will take care of it for you! (In a reasonable time of course.)

6) Free Gym – Most apartment communities have their own fitness center on location provided for the residents. With state of the art equipment, these gyms are free and you don’t have to travel at all to get in a good workout. As a home-owner, you’d either have to build a home gym or get a gym membership that may cost you $40/ month. Eck!

Those 6 reasons are just cracking the tip of all the awesome reasons apartment living is so incredibly great and a cut above living any other way. What do you enjoy about apartment living?
