Apartments vs. Condos

When you live in an apartment or condominium, you don’t have to mow the grass, shovel the sidewalk, or maintain any common areas. In many ways, both types of housing are similar, but apartments offer some advantages over condos.

Apartments Offer Flexibility

If you own a condominium and want to move, you’ll either have to find a buyer or lease it to a renter. When you live in an apartment, you can easily move at the end of your lease. For people who may be planning to relocate someday or who would like the flexibility to accept a job offer in a different city or state, renting is the best choice.

Maintenance Concerns

Condo owners pay association fees that cover the costs of maintaining shared areas, but they are responsible for maintenance inside their home – if the furnace fails, the owner pays to replace it. Apartment dwellers don’t have such costs.


Some condominium properties are a mix of owner-occupied and renter-occupied units. If you are renting a condo from an individual owner, you might not be able to rely on prompt maintenance service, especially if the owner doesn’t live nearby. In a professionally managed apartment community, you can always count on a fast response to any maintenance request.

Market Considerations

In December 2018, U.S. home sales hit a three-year low. With the real estate market in a state of uncertainty, many people looking for a luxury lifestyle may prefer renting to owning.
