Living Space

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.

 

Environment

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!?

 

Proximity

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.

 

Maintenance

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.
