Top Three Reasons Newly Weds Should Choose a Conroe Apartment
Getting married is an exciting time, but there are some important conversations that are required at the start of wedded bliss. One of the most important conversations is where to live after the marriage vows are taken.
Will the couple live in a house, an apartment, a condo, or some other residence? Although many newlyweds would like to own a house at a certain point in their lives, there are some significant advantages to living in an apartment community, particularly for the first few years of the marriage.
Some couples might even find it beneficial to live permanently in an apartment. Here are a few reasons Conroe apartment life is something to consider as a newlywed.
There are Some Terrific “Starter” Apartments for Newlyweds
You’ve probably heard the phrase “starter home” before, but did you know that the “home” part of that phrase can also refer to an apartment? Some apartment communities actually cater to couples and provide amenities that are ideal for newlyweds who want to live with some luxuries without breaking the bank.
Living in a single-family home – whether it’s a rented house or owned by the couple – can represent a rather costly existence. A newlywed couple might end up spending their entire savings or paychecks on the day-to-day costs of living in a house.
Furthermore, living in a house before the careers of the newlyweds are established can make it difficult to find room in the budget for things like gym memberships and entertainment. Would you rather have the money to go out to eat a few times a week, or would you rather have to put that money into surprise plumbing repairs and upkeep on a house?
You might find that the costs of homeownership are worth it, but you might also find that the savings offered by living in an apartment would suit you better.
Yes, Newlyweds Can Have Roommates
One of the assumptions about newly married couples is that they need to live alone in a house or apartment without anyone else. However, a couple may actually benefit from living with a roommate – or two – shortly after they get married.
Not only can a roommate reduce the amount of rent paid between the couple, but living with another person can also open the door to living in a more luxurious apartment. The price for a three-bedroom apartment in a fabulous community with tons of amenities could be a little out-of-reach for the average couple.
Regarding roommates, The Balance reveals:
“In some areas, apartments with multiple bedrooms end up being cheaper per person than one-bedroom apartments.”
Adding a roommate to the mix could help the newlyweds save some serious money on the monthly rent, as well as make it possible to live in a huge, spacious apartment. There are some drawbacks to living with a roommate, such as the loss of total privacy, but there are many advantages, too.
Consider: Living in an extremely frugal manner with a roommate could make the process of saving up for a down payment on a house an activity that takes five years rather than ten at the start of a marriage.
