Living in an urban setting is definitely different than suburban life. However, just because it is different does not mean that it is not a desired lifestyle. In fact, most people that chose urban living find that they would not wish to live any other way.
Benefits Of Urban Living
There are many different perks that come with urban living that you cannot find in suburban life. Some of these include:
• Amenities. When you live in a high rise condo or loft, you are able to enjoy all the amenities that the building offers. Many of these buildings have pools, fitness areas, restaurants, shops, and relaxation areas that are for the exclusive use of residents.
• Convenience. Everything in a downtown area is usually within walking distance. You can enjoy entertainment and cultural events, frequent local shops and eateries, and conduct business all in one area.
• Transportation. Urban living also gives you better access to public transportation. This enables you to move about the city area worry free while enjoying a greener lifestyle.
• Floorplans. Modern, open-spaced floor plans found in lofts and urban condos are aesthetically pleasing and perfect for any décor. Many of the interior design features, like oversized windows, cannot be found in a suburban setting
• Affordability. Living in an urban setting is affordable. Your cost of living in this type of modern and convenient setting is very affordable. Actually, many of the benefits of urban living reduce normal living expenses.
Another benefit of condo and loft living is the lack of home maintenance that you must perform. Your building management will care for the upkeep of the exterior of the building and you will not be required to do yard work. This is just one of the ways that you can reduce your living expenses. Additionally, in an active lifestyle, having less maintenance projects to complete gives you more time for the things that you enjoy.
Living in an urban setting does not take away that “sense of community” that is found in suburban settings. Condo and loft communities are just that, a community of people that enjoy living within the city and everything that the area has to offer.
