Living in the city or nearby

Posts 1 to 3 of 3


When it comes to settling down to your own home, a lot of people confront with one rather difficult choice: living in the city or in a village nearby. Obviously, both locations have their advantages ans disadvantages.
On the one hand, living in the city provides a multitude of services and options that are not available in the country side, such as a large variety of stores and public transport which has become indispensable for some of us; the absence of it outside the city makes owning a car crucial for those who live in a village, making the journey to work or school nevertheless more time-consuming.
On the other hand, homes outside the city are a lot more affordable (plus you don't have to pay the city taxes), and since you are going to live in a house, it's going to be a lot more spacious than a flat. You can have a yard where your children can play, you can throw barbecues and even have a garden to grow your own vegetables. In addition to that, there is a lot less traffic and noise outside the city, making the city a much more stressful and polluted environment by comparison.
Therefore, when choosing a home it is only up to you to decide what is more important, since both situations have their own disadvantages.

It is true that choosing a home can often be problematic because cities and rural areas have advantages and disadvantages, things you can miss from a part that you can have elsewhere and vice versa. In my opinion, the best place to get a home is in a village very close to the city like the Deep Valley for example.



I live myself in the city. Yes, it is right that in the city you have acces to a multitude of services and options. I cant argue on living in a village near Iasi, but I agree with you on the space that a house gives you in contrast with a appartement.
