The games of the 31st Olympiad have been filled with both moments of amazement and moments of controversy. While most of us viewers will remember the epic achievements of Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt, the vast majority of the athletes, coaches and spectators will remember the experience. In the Athlete’s Village, memories of a lifetime were created by those who participated in the games. At the same time, we all learned many lessons about what’s important to not just the athletes, but also to everyone taking advantage of apartment living.
There are dozens, if not hundreds, of reasons why people are flocking to apartments. For some, those reasons are economic. For others, it’s due to changes in their family size. Still, others rent based on location or because they’re moving for work. All of these people and countless others can speak to the benefits of the apartment lifestyle. From the cost of living to luxury amenities, there are scores of reasons why apartment living is the most popular housing choice for many. But the greatest benefit of all is not often spoken about: the friendships that are created.
