A property purchase is always going to be an expensive investment, so the final selection needs to be made after due consideration of all the pros and cons. Today, a lot of options are available to home buyers in terms of house types. Nuclear families favour apartments while large families lean towards villas. So, if you are in the process of deciding whether to opt for a villa or an apartment, here are some factors to consider.
Price is the most sensitive factor that determines a property purchase. You will definitely spend a lot more on purchasing a villa than an apartment, even if it’s a luxury apartment.
Apartments are much easier to maintain and cost less too. Villas incur higher maintenance as not only the house, but also the garden and common space have to be cared for. In terms of security too, an apartment complex (with all-round security) is much safer than an independent villa.
Owning a villa is a matter of prestige but most of these independent villa complexes tend to be located on the outskirts of the city. If you are looking for daily conveniences at your doorstep (schools, hospitals, offices etc.), then an apartment, as it will be located within city limits, will be the wiser option.
Locality and demographics play an important part in determining whether the property you have purchased will appreciate soundly in the long term. Generally, properties in the cities tend to show much greater appreciation in value than those on the outskirts.
In case of modifying your home as per your taste, villas win hands down. Apartments are either under construction or ready-to-move-in units that are made as per the builder’s specifications. On the other hand, you can modify, add/subtract, and adjust space, design, interiors and exteriors in a villa completely to your liking!
While there is no simple choice, as both apartments and villas have their own advantages or disadvantages, the golden median would be to buy a villa in a gated complex that gives you your space & independence while taking care of maintenance and security!
