Some people prefer to live in a house, while others feel that there are more advantages to living in an apartment. Are there more advantages than disadvantages of living in a house compared with living in an apartment?

Modern life conditions have been constantly affecting our living preferences. Over the past few decades accommodation habits has been dramatically changed by the environmental problems as well as urban sprawl trends. Despite of all possible drawbacks, I personally believe that living in a house has a number of significant benefits compared to apartment residence, including healthier environment and availability of personal space.

Due to the fact than vast majority of houses are built in rural areas and distant suburbs, environmental conditions in these areas might be healthier. According to recent research conducted in Europe, levels of water and air pollution in city areas have noticeably increased in the past few decades. Thus, it makes houses be more attractive choice in terms of current environment conditions and future perspectives.

In addition, houses often have an option of a personal space which is sometimes nearly impossible to obtain in multi-apartment block. For instance, I suppose that if a young family was offered to choose between a house and a flat, they would take the first option. Usually, a house has a land space which makes it more attractive to children as well as adults.

In conclusion, living in a house has more benefits compared to apartment. Despite the amount of additional maintenance costs, houses provide higher standards of accommodation by allowing people live in a healthier environment and have some amount of personal space for outdoor activities. In my opinion, these advantages outweigh all possible drawbacks and houses would stay a dream type of accommodation for vast majority of residents.
