Should I buy a house or flat?

This is a complicated question and the answer depends on two very important factors; the buyer's budget and his personal needs. Just like every other decision, there are some good aspects and not so good ones that must be taken into account.

Advantages of buying a flat
Most flats are located in the city, very close to the main amenities, such as public transport, supermarkets, shops, restaurants, cinemas, theatre and many more.

You will live in a community
Living in a community has many advantages, because you will have at your disposal services that would otherwise be more expensive. Mains water and heating are an advantage and will help you save money. Communal areas such as gardens, tennis or paddle courts or a swimming pool are luxuries that are offered to the residents of the block.

Feel more secure
It is usual to find people who are experts in security and management of the usual tasks, such as maintenance, cleaning or control of the entrance to the building. This is in addition to devices such as security cameras and surveillance as well as neighbours that will alert you or the concierge in case something happens. For example, in the event of a hot water leakage due to a pipe burst, the help of a neighbour or janitor can prevent damage to your property.

Advantages of buying a house

Privacy
This is one of the main benefits of a house. It means having your own space, away from prying eyes, where you can enjoy peace and tranquility with lots of greenery around you.

More space
With one or more floors the rooms in a house are usually larger than the classic flats. The spaces are more diaphanous and there is no claustrophobic feeling due to the amount of furniture, paintings, carpets and mirrors in the rooms.

Healthier life
Being in touch with nature will invite you to go for a walk or exercise. Of course the air is fresher with no pollution. There are no annoying noises neither from neighbours nor traffic. You will be able to listen to radio or watch TV on high volumes. All this has an effect on greater tranquility, less stress, and a more peaceful life.

Sunny and bright rooms
There are no buildings around the house that can block the sunlight or spoil the wonderful views. All the rooms will be sunny and there won't be any need to turn on the lights in the afternoon.

Making the right decision will differ from one person to another and regardless of the answer to the title of this article, Engel & Völkers has excellent solutions for every situation.
