    You still pay for all that stuff in an apartment, you're just on a subscription model instead

      In an apt, rent is the max you pay. In a house, mortgage is the minimum you pay.

      It is better if you know how much max you will be paying. Houses have surprise expenses like repairs etc and they can get very very expensive. Budgeting could be a big problem.

      Rent goes up when the costs go up. I raise mine almost every year...

      I think the question is whether to live in a house or apt. You can rent or own either.

      There is a subscription called property tax.

    I prefer to live in apartments, but hate noisy neighbors

    I have both and it depends. I have a flat in a luxury building in Barcelona and it's awesome. It's at the beach, lots of people around, walking distance to W. Here, I have two houses because it makes no difference if you're down town or an hour away, social life is equally poor so you can replace that with a location that better suits your hobbies.

      I don't work there but spend summers there.
      @CapitWon, I also park my 458 without a cover in the the communal parking garage the majority of the year and usually when I get there it won't start πŸ˜‚

      What do you do that lets you have that sort of a life style?

      That's thanks to my family but I do have somewhat of a normal job in the states.

      That sounds nice, but I will never respect you

      Oh thank you for sharing that, it has as much an effect on my life as last year's snow fall statistics from Miami.

    Apartment 100%. I care far more about location than I do about living space.

    The short sightedness of this post boggles my mind. You're leaving out one major aspect of home ownership... "Building equity". Jeez !! πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

      You can own an apartment too.

      What's the point of living in a 600sqft 30 year old box?

      Morons don't know what a real apartment is because you have never lived in a real city, like New York.

      Because in the places Blinders live (Silicon Valley, NYC, Seattle) it accounts for half of your cost of living and has massive influence on your lifestyle.

      Yep, and it's super entertaining.

    Dunno. Lived under the staircase all my life.

    Thinking that the apt maintenance is free is a fallacy. Get a house and pay some guy 500$ HOA per month to deal with all unexpected problems.

    Depends on location. Like living in an apartment in urban enough area where I can walk to stuff. Apartment in the middle of nothing sucks. In New York, my apartment buildings were always quiet too - in CA you hear everything from neighbors because construction is shit.

    Townhouse with a good HOA (rare). I get a house with ownership of all the vertical space and good sound insulation, and don’t have to deal with all the outdoor BS.

    I would rather live in a house (yard, garage, can use my subwoofer or drill, grind, ... whenever I want) but live in an apartment for now

    House. I've got dogs and they have more time to run around. Sadly I'm stuck in apt for now.

    Having done both ... house. If I was ten or fifteen years younger, apartment. I used to move to be within 10 minutes of my job. But you get tired of moving.

    A house isn't really an option here in Manhattan. And I'd rather live in the city than out in the burbs with a long commute to work and everything interesting.

    Depends on family situation. Do you have kids? Pets? Do you entertain large groups? If so, yard for parties is nice...

    Most people around the world who are living in cities, live quite happily in apartments. House is overrated and gives you a false sense of accomplishment.

    In terms of privacy, they are almost similar. I have rarely seen people sitting in their large front porch. The backyard gives you some space, but the apartment complexes these days have quite large common areas, swimming pools, tennis courts for you to chill out!
