Many of us are looking for affordable alternatives for a variety of reasons.
Many of us are still in the habit of having friends or family take care of our apartment needs, or we simply like the convenience and simplicity of having a landlord over our shoulder, providing repairs, services and security.
If you do choose to have a serviced apartment, you are still liable for taxes, insurance and maintenance. While the benefit may be fewer worries, there are still a few things that may arise from having this arrangement.
Benefits of Serviced Apartments
This is a real benefit of most serviced apartments. When people live together, their friends and family become their family and they develop a sense of comfort living with people who know their history, preferences and personalities.
My experience has been that when people live in communal apartments, even if they are married, the couples don’t see each other as often. Family relationships are cultivated through daily activities and maintaining a social circle with one another.
Maintaining a social circle.
People who live in serviced apartments are more likely to develop a social circle with one another than others. This is a small perk, but it is a perk that can add a sense of happiness to your life.
Good grounds for a healthy relationship.
Living in a communal apartment can be a good ground for a healthy relationship. Individuals in a shared home are also more likely to spend time in the area around the apartment, visiting each other’s homes and parties.
You also see others in the apartment that are there for you. If you live in a serviced apartment, you are likely to see other people living in the apartment with you. This can also provide you with support in the event of a health issue.
A common issue in households with children is that parents tend to get too busy working to see how their children are developing socially and getting involved with their community. This is less likely to happen when you are living in a communal apartment.
Other than that, I have found that communal apartments are usually better equipped for families.
Services that are available for you.
In most of the serviced apartments Bristol has on offer, there is a swimming pool and fitness centre. Some apartments even have an outdoor swimming pool. This is a real benefit for families because you don’t have to pay for the cost of swimming lessons and facilities, which are usually offered for a fee.
Other amenities that you can enjoy in your serviced apartment include gyms, swimming pools, fireplaces and coffee shops. This is not common in some areas of the United Kingdom, but it is available in more developed cities.
Overall, living in a serviced apartment provides benefits to the entire family.
