Row Houses And Apartments: Pros and Cons

March 30 2020

imageSelecting the right property can be a dilemma for most homebuyers. Every type of property, be it an apartment or a row house or an independent bungalow, has certain pros and cons that need to be taken into consideration. Before you fork over the down payment and other financial aspects, it is important to understand these pointers which will help you choose the perfect property for yourself and your family.

The most striking difference in an apartment and a row house is the pricing. An apartment will be less costly than a row house, given the size of a row house is much larger than an apartment. However, location plays a crucial role too. If you buy a row house in a less developed area versus an apartment in a fast-growing location, it is possible for the price of both to be in the same range. For example, if you are on the lookout for residential homes in Kadamba Plateau, Goa, you will find both apartments and row houses to be in a similar price range since it is one of Goa’s fastest-growing locations.

Whether it is luxurious 3 BHK flats in Kadamba Goa or row houses in Kadamba, Goa, at Gera’s River of Joy you will find the best of both worlds. So, what are these distinguishing aspects that make living in an apartment or a row house a different experience from the other? Let’s take a look. These pointers will help you choose wisely between an apartment and a row house.

  • 1. Independence

    As you might know already, apartments are one among many while row houses have an identity of their own and are independent from the other. The independent aspect is the most attractive point of a row house, and its design can add to the aesthetical appeal of your home as well. An apartment, on the other hand, will give you the like-minded community feel, interaction with neighbours, and the sense of inclusivity.

  • 2. Interiors

    The layout or design of a row house is quite similar to a villa home. The multi-storeyed layout of a row house adds to the spaciousness of the home and also gives you privacy, which may not be the case when it comes to an apartment dwelling. Moreover, the layout of your apartment will be similar to your neighbours.

  • 3. Community Living

    Whether it’s an apartment or a row house, you will find yourself introduced to a host of amenities. When it comes to community living, it is a matter of personal preference. In the case of row houses, you will have to share the amenities with your neighbours and when it comes to apartments, you will share the amenities with the co-residents in your apartment complex. Either way, you get the advantages of community living.

  • 4. Privacy & Security

    A row house ensures maximum privacy and independence as it is part of a gated community with top security features which assure you of complete safety. A stand-alone apartment building might not have such a feature but a township with many apartment buildings will be part of a secure gated community.

Considering all these aspects and other factors such as the size of your family and location, if you’re looking for the experience of a villa at a price tag of an apartment, then a row house at Gera’s River of Joy is the best bet. If you think 3 BHK luxury flats in Kadamba, Goa are more suitable for you, you can take your pick again at Gera’s River of Joy. The development comprises of both apartments and row houses with smart automation features, close to Panjim which makes it easily accessible.

First of all I would like to thank  you  and the Gera team for organizing different workshops at our doorstep.
The best thing I have done to my kids is that I  took a right decision to buy a flat in Gera.

My son Tattva had been enrolled in the intermediate level and has been coached by the Vishwanathan Anand Chess Academy coach . Tattva has made remarkable strides and will be on his way to get his FIDE rating in November. A lot of credit goes to the mentor for his unique way of handling his students. He has been very patient while working with Tattva on his areas of improvement. In addition before the tournament the coach had voluntarily added additional classes and doubled his efforts to get a better performance out of Tattva. He has shown complete ownership which is commendable. I hope he continues to develop more and more chess players in the coming days.
