Trying to decide on what kind of environment you want to live in? Both have their perks, however there are a few important factors to consider before making the decision.
Cost of Living
Generally speaking, city life will be a bit more pricey because your proximity to business establishments. A 3 bedroom rural house might cost the same as a 1 bedroom urban apartment, not to mention HOA fees can be a lot higher in the city.
The city-life has loads more to offer in the sense of clubs, restaurants, general entertainment and great for people who like to party, eat and shop outside. However, if you are more interested in a more quiet lifestyle, then a house out in town is okay as well.
Whether you have a family or thinking about starting one, being in the right kind of location is important. Depending on your financial status, you can buy a home in the urban area if you don’t mind your kids growing up in a city. However, if you are operating on a limited budget, you might want to opt for the rural living.
