Pros and Cons : flat or house ?
When you are buying real estate, it should be something for a long period of time, if not permanent, so you need to think it through.
You are investing a lot of money, so make sure that you've made a smart investment. For example, flats are much more popular, especially with career-oriented young people, and they require the flexibility and ease that you can only get from flat.
On the other hand, houses are pretty popular if you want to live out of city centre, where you will be isolated from the crowd and noise.
That's when the house is a good choice. With it, you can have the additional living space, especially if you want to have a garden.
It is also a good option if you plan to expand your family. Now, we will give you some advantages and disadvantages of having a house or flat.
When you have a house, you need to have a wider range of tenants because garden needs good maintenance, which requires a lot of work around the house. So if you decide to have one, you must know that you'll be needing more money for it.
On the other hand, if you have a house, you will be less disturbed by noise from the neighbours, and you will have much more space for everything you need.
Advantage of having a flat is that they cost less, and they are more suitable for older people who don't want to work too much around the house, or don't have enough money to invest in it.
Utility bills, council tax and insurance are less expensive, but when it comes to space, you will not be able to improvise too much unless you have a really large flat.
