At Bradford, we offer some of the most flexible rental housing options in the region. With both apartments and townhomes available, you have your share of choices. Sometimes deciding which is best is the biggest challenge. Here are some pros and cons of town homes versus apartments that you should consider:.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Apartments
While Bradford’s apartments are spacious and carefully use every inch of space to provide open floor plans, sometimes apartments can be slightly smaller. This can be a benefit to some, especially those who do not have the time to keep up with a larger space or the furniture to fill it. For others who have families or pets, this could be a drawback. Apartments also may offer slightly less privacy, as you have neighbors on either side and often above or below you; for some, this will not matter.
Apartments often offer better views than townhomes because they are higher on the property. They offer the benefit of less maintenance as well, because there are fewer floors to sweep, vacuum and tidy.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Town Homes
Renting a townhome means giving yourself more space and a bit more privacy. Townhomes may have their own garages and only have neighbors on the sides. They have larger floor plans and plenty of room for a growing family.
At Bradford, our qualified maintenance crew handles much of the maintenance of your townhome, but because the space is larger, you are going to have a bit more responsibility for cleaning and caretaking, which can be a drawback for some residents.
Making the Choice
In the end, you need to consider your lifestyle, potential growth for your family and budget when making the choice. Whether you choose an apartment or town home in Bradford, you will get the same dedicated service and access to all of our exceptional amenities.
