Deciding Whether to Rent a House or a Condo

One of the biggest decisions to make as a tenant is whether to rent a house or a condo. Each style has benefits and drawbacks, including price, privacy, amenities, and location. All these factors should be taken into consideration when deciding which housing type will better suit your needs.

Renting a House

Single-family homes are the most desired housing type throughout America, largely due to privacy and square footage. Renters find single-family homes the best option for privateness, more bedrooms, and an outdoor space. Often these rentals are found in subdivisions, giving renters a sense of safety and security. Although, it may be difficult to find a single-family home in a city or popular neighborhood, which tends to make these rentals more expensive.

Renting a Condo

Condo living has many benefits as well, with the main attraction being that most condo buildings can be found closer to the city, allowing much easier access to local entertainment, and restaurants. Often these complexes have great amenities that draw in renters, such as community pools, fitness centers, rooftop terraces, and more. Renters have found that there is a strong sense of community due to living so closely to your neighbors. While some of the cons for condo style living include, lack of privacy and outdoor space, limited parking, and stricter pet requirements.
