Where is your apartment?
How many apartments are in your development?
How does living in apartment suit your lifestyle?
It is perfect for me because as a single professional female there is very little maintenance and no gardening. Also, I enjoy a higher level of security in my building because there is restricted access to my level.
In your opinion, what are the two biggest ‘problems’ with apartments or apartment-living?
1. I have to be conscious of how loud I play music in my apartment and at what time of day/night due to the close proximity of neighbouring apartments; and
2. A down side is that due to the size of my apartment balcony, I can’t hold big get-togethers or BBQs with lots of friends. There are common areas but its inconvenient and less private to use them.
Considering renovating your apartment? Have you checked you legally own it?
