6 Reasons to Ditch the House and Embrace Apartment Living

Anchorage Apartments - Hope Island

Contemplating leaving your big family home and downsizing to an apartment but haven’t convinced your partner… or yourself to embrace apartment living?

We have listed just a few reasons to ditch the house and embrace apartment living.

#1 Location

Downsizing to an apartment may mean relocating to a more desirable suburb. If you have ever wanted to live by the water, be it either a river or the ocean, moving into an apartment over a house may mean you can live in a location you have only dreamed of without ruining your budget or putting you in too much debt.


#2 Affordability

Generally, when you move into an apartment, your costs will be lower than what they would be living in a big house… not to mention the initial price of an apartment is usually significantly less than what it would be for a large family home. 

Something else to keep in mind is that an apartment will be an investment if you decide to move on over the years.

#3 Safety 

Ever worry about the safety of your family and your belongings in your house? Sure content insurance will cover your losses but you can never replace those sentimental pieces of jewellery passed down through generations and you can’t put a price on your childhood keepsakes that you would have passed down to your own children…

When you move into an apartment, you can generally expect that it will be protected with security gates and secure car parks that you need a key to access and in some cases, the complex may even have security monitors.

#4 Amenities

Would you like a gym, vegetable garden, swimming pool, bbq and entertaining area but don’t have the space or the budget to fit it all into your family home? Most apartments give you these amenities at your doorstep… and without any of the maintenance hassles.

#5 Less Maintenance

When you move into an apartment, you can relax knowing that the lawns are going to be taken care of, the pool will always be clean and in our case, you have a vegetable garden that you are free to pick from without having to worry about looking after the fruit and veggies.

#6 Community based lifestyle

Moving into an apartment will give you the opportunity to increase your social life. Instead of one neighbour, you get many!

Here at the Anchorage Apartments, we like to host regular social events to give our residents the feeling of a resort lifestyle and have had some amazing memories made and some great friendships.
