Villa or apartment? How to decide!

villa or apartment

Are you undecided between villa or apartment? Not sure which is the right solution for you and your family?

Let’s see together how to make a decision. At Agenzia Immobiliare Sabina we love to accompany our customers throughout the buying and selling process.

Choosing the right property (villa or apartment) can take time.

Remember that the property you choose, whether villa or apartment, must “represent” who you are and make you feel at ease.

Evaluate the options

When you decide to buy a property it is important to evaluate the options available for you.

The city or country where you decide to buy your property will certainly have several options to choose from.

If you are undecided, and you do not know whether to buy a villa or apartment, we recommend that you request a visit for different properties, in this way you can evaluate the size of the property but also understand if the property (villa or apartment) reflects your needs.

Assess your needs

Remember to take into account all the people who will live with you in the new home.

For a young and career couple, for example, it would be much more “comfortable” to live in an apartment.

For a family with children, it is often more appropriate to buy a villa. Think of the possibility of using a large outdoor space.

Evaluate the location

The location of the property (whether villa or apartment) is essential for those who decide to buy a house.

Not all towns or cities offer the possibility of buying a villa not far from the center.

Evaluate how important it is for you to be far from the town or city center. These details are important in order not to have second thoughts in the future.

What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Deciding between villa or apartment can be difficult. Let’s try to see together the advantages and disadvantages of these types of properties.

Advantages of the villa:

  • private parking
  • open spaces (garden, land)
  • greater autonomy of schedules

    Disadvantages of the villa:
  • distance from the city center
  • need to use a car for travel (if the villa is in the open countryside)

    Advantages of the apartment:
  • no garden to take care of (or condominium gardener)
  • neighborhood
  • proximity to the city center


    Disadvantages of the apartment:
  • condominium meetings
  • times to be respected
  • difficulty in finding parking

How to make a decision

We would like to clarify that choosing between villa or apartment is always up to the potential buyer.

Remember to take into account every need!!

A good idea might be to make a list of pros and cons for you and your family.

For example, the distance from the city center, the distance to your office or your children’s schools, etc.

What a real estate agent can do for you

Relying on a real estate agency can often help a buyer choose between villa or apartment.

The real estate agent will assess your needs and help you find the property for you and your family.

Remember to always provide all the necessary information.

For example, if you have made a list of pros and cons as previously suggested, you can communicate it to your real estate agent.

Transparency is essential in finding the right property.
