What Type of Home is Right for You?

From the amount of space to the cost, whether you want land with a home or you want to be on the 22nd floor with an in-house gym, there are lots of things to consider when it comes to choosing what type of property is right for you. And with more options available than ever available on the real estate market, it is understandable if you are a little overwhelmed and do not know where to turn. Consider the pros and cons of these options to get you started.


Becoming an increasingly popular choice, and being constructed with an increasing range of options, a condominium is a great for those looking to live in the city, close to its amenities and conveniences, and for those who are not opposed to being high above the ground and having lots of neighbors!

Other benefits of condominium living include:

  • Many condo complexes have in-house services and amenities like a gym, children’s play area and garden.
  • You can often purchase them in different sizes, with different numbers of rooms available.
  • You typically receive an indoor parking spot.

Urban Home

If you are looking to stay in the city, but do not want to live in an apartment or high-rise, a detached home in the city, or a nearby suburb may be suitable for you. A home often gives you increased space and may offer more rooms, making it a better option if you have a family to consider or are looking to grow your family.

In suburban communities, you can often also end up in a great, close-knit neighborhood, where your children have others who are the same age that they can play with, and where you will develop a group of friends. Be aware however, that the decreasing popularity of these particular homes for sale, means that that they may be more expensive to purchase, and it is important to consider costs when it comes to choosing which urban home prefer and where it is located.

Rural Home

The rural home such as in Ponchatoula LA, is situated away from the city center, likely comes with a bit of land and with a backyard, while a dream for some and the pinnacle of a nightmare for others. If you are ready to get away from the high paced lifestyle, hustle and bustle and noise of the city and would like to have something that is more secluded, with less urgency to go places and meet up with people, this could be the right choice for you.

This is an increasingly popular option for families who would like to raise their kids with access to the outdoors, a safe backyard to play in, and some outside space to explore. Remember however, that moving rurally means services and amenities are harder to access. You have to drive farther to the grocery stores, do banking, and getting the kids off to school.

When it comes to the final decision on which home makes the most sense will depend on your own situation and preferences. There really is no wrong answer. Once you do decide, all that is left is for you to enjoy your new home.
