At first glance, the idea of buying an apartment might seem counterintuitive. After all, you had excellent reasons for renting an apartment in the first place!
In the not so distant past, apartments were seen strictly as a refuge for people who could not afford a home. Blue collar workers in an urban corridor and college students were part of a small cross section of society that flocked to the apartment lifestyle. However, times have changed. Today, apartments provide more people than ever before a great place to call home. Everyone from business professionals, to downsizing baby boomers — every age and cross section of society are enjoying the benefits of apartment dwelling. And, while every segment of society is represented, renters — regardless of demographics — generally have these four personality traits in common.

Now you have to make a tough decision: rent a washer and dryer, buy them, or go to the laundromat. If you’re not sure how to approach the issue, take a look at these tips first to help make an appliance choice that works best for you and your budget.
