City Living Versus Suburb Living
- Apr 15, 2016
City: Cities often have smaller properties. Cramped living spaces result in having to declutter more often.
Suburb: Suburban homes have more space providing more opportunity to spread out and own more possessions.
City: The risk of becoming exposed to pollution in the air is significantly higher while living in the city.
Suburb: Areas outside of cities have lower chances of polluted air. Who doesn’t want to be closer to nature!?
City: Amenities such as schools, shopping and entertainment are only a short walk or transit ride away.
Suburb: Suburbs are usually farther away from city cores. Children will have to use a bus system for school and owning a vehicle is required.
Cost of Living
City: Cities are more expensive to live in. Rent, bills, entertainment, food and transit are often more expensive than in smaller towns and suburbs.
Suburb: The cost of living is much lower outside of the cities. Properties are not only bigger than what you can buy in the city but are also less money.
City: If something breaks or needs an update the building’s maintenance team is usually responsible for the cost and execution.
Suburb: Owning a home requires costly maintenance, however, gives the owner freedom to do what they want aesthetically.
