Top 5 Ways Apartments Save You Time

Hourglass in front of wall of close, slight vintage filterLove it or hate it, the time changes every fall. The days become shorter as darkness descends by 6:00 p.m. Saving time becomes an even bigger focus this time of year. One of our favorite ways to save time is by choosing the right apartment for your next home. When you live in an apartment, you actually enjoy more time savings than homeowners. Check it out! Here are five ways you can save time as an apartment dweller.

1. Apartments give you more time with the ones you love. Instead of endless yard work and home maintenance and repair projects, apartment residents have the luxury of having all those tasks taken care of for them. That frees up a considerable amount of time to spend with family and friends. In fact, this is one of the reasons more Baby Boomers are choosing to live in apartments over houses: they are able to spend more time with children and grandchildren, and less time taking care of more house than they need.

2. Apartments allow you more time to do the things you love to do. The convenient locations (walkability) of many apartment communities allow you to take a short walk or a bike ride to watch a movie or football game with friends. Even if you are in a more suburban setting, most things you enjoy doing are just a short Uber drive away! In today’s economy, the only affordable homes are those that are just too far away from the things you love.

3. Apartments give you more time with your pets. Because you are spending less time on home maintenance and repairs, you have more time with your furry loved ones. Plus, many apartment communities have made it easier for you to spend quality time with your pets via “bark parks,” cat play rooms, and pet washing centers. Some even have pet concierges who will take your dog for a walk while you work!

4. Apartments help you save time holiday shopping. The advent of online shopping has already made shopping for gifts, holiday décor, groceries and many other items easier for all of us. But when you live in apartments, your packages are easy to pick up at the apartment office in package lockers. At communities with automated packaging delivery messaging systems, you are sent a text or email the minute your package arrives. This makes holiday shopping – and shipping – so much easier and less time-consuming!

5. Apartments give you more time for yourself. As we get closer to Thanksgiving, Christmas and other winter holidays, everyone is feeling the stress. However, more time for you means less stress. To help you relax and enjoy life, many communities provide amazing fitness centers that are more advanced, plus lack the crowds, judgement, and expense of equivalent gym membership. Some newer communities even have spas offering pedicures, massages and other pampering services, along with art studios and other fun ways to unwind.
