With home prices so high, apartment living has become a great choice for many families. One benefit of apartment living is no yard work, though you can have flowers on your patio if you choose. Most apartment communities have a pool and common areas with grills. Many are pet friendly. With less square footage, a lot less time is spent cleaning and it is much easier to keep an eye on little ones. There are mixed communities with businesses like restaurants and movie theatres that can provide jobs for teenagers. Maintenance is only an online request away if something goes wrong. You more likely can afford something in a good school system without the hefty price of a home in the same area. These are just a few! Below are some great sites with suggestions for families living in apartment homes.
