Should I Rent An Apartment Or A Townhouse in Noblesville?

You've decided between buying and renting. Still, now you have another daunting decision: should you rent an apartment or townhouse in Noblesville?

While you can scope out a spacious 2-bedroom or a 3-bedroom apartment in Noblesville, you may want to foot the extra rent for the increase in privacy a townhouse provides. After all, a townhouse is almost always guaranteed to feature individual entryways, a personal garage, and two to three stories. But those benefits also come with more rent.

Consider these few key factors to think about so you can make a good decision.

Townhomes Usually Cost More In Rent Than Apartments

While there are no concrete rules for rent prices, townhouses will usually cost more each month. When you rent a townhouse, you normally get a small yard in both the front and back and a connected garage. Townhomes also use a two- or three-story floor plan.

That being said, you can find many apartments side by side within one structure. You may feature a patio or balcony, but you won’t find a private unit entrance. Those townhouse perks of a garage, yard, and distance from neighbors could have a bigger rent. 

Get Multiple Levels With A Townhouse 

Space considerations are relatively straightforward when looking at an apartment or townhouse in Noblesville. In regards to floor space, a 10’ x 10’ bedroom can be found in either option. And it's not uncommon to discover some apartments that give you more space than the townhouse option. But, apartments will normally use a single floor layout. In contrast, a townhouse will use either 2 or 3 floors.

The different stories allow for more privacy and no upstairs neighbors. With multiple floors, it can be easy to determine what is your entertaining space and what’s your sleeping space. For example, you can watch TV on the main level after others go to sleep upstairs. And if your office is at your house, you can set up a place to work on the main floor while your top floor becomes a work-free oasis.

Both Get All The Community Amenities

Townhouses are guaranteed to come provided with washer and dryer hookups. Different apartments might also have a place for hookups like their townhouse siblings. Other units feature washer/dryers already installed, and some have building facilities instead. Your townhouse could also have more closet space and has a increased chance for details like a a breakfast nook.

Apartment complex amenities come included for any type of unit you rent. You'll receive entry to the clubhouse, workcenter, and anything else the overall community has for its Residents. Each apartment gets maintenance services and appliances, too.

Privacy Is the Deciding Factor On Townhome Vs. Apartment in Noblesville

Common hallways are an everyday occurrence of apartment life. While this may be a easy way to meet your neighbors, you may want to avoid a shared walkway. Townhomes are individual units akin to a traditional house and may even have private backyard areas, allowing you to do meet and greets on your own terms.

Both apartments and townhouses have shared walls, but a lot of apartments share a floor, ceiling, or both. You'll have to be more aware about noise living in an apartment. The absence of noise from floors and ceilings in a townhome could also seem like a more pet-friendly option.
