House Vs. Apartment & Build Vs. Buy A Home

Choice: Apartment
Apartments are not only smaller and more fuel-efficient to heat and
cool,they also tend to be located near or in metro centers. That
means apartment dwellers are more likely to use public
transportation and less likely to drive long, carbon-burning
distances to work.

Choice: Buy
For all the advances in energy-efficient home design, it still requires
more energy to build a home from scratch than to move into an
existing one. From transporting materials to powering saws and
drills, construction is energy-intensive. If you want to save money
on utility bills, consider retrofitting an older home with new insulation,
low-flow shower heads and faucet aerators.

Choosing a place where you want to stay is quite difficult because of your priorities. In making decisions, you should analyze your current lifestyle and needs. With that, you'll be able to know which is better for you.

Good point Kate. Some more thoughts, For security and safety point of view Apartments are good. If you want more privacy and want to make alteration as per your need with time than you need to own a house.

Yeah! It's true! It would depend on your current situation and needs. Try to ask some friends or any family member's advice so you have an idea which one would be good for you. Then if you already made a decision, your next project is decorating your room(s). By the way, do you have any tips about decorating a home?
