City Living vs. The SuburbsBefore looking at homes, you need to make the decision on where you would rather live: the city or the suburbs. Here is a quick pros & cons list that you should take into consideration before making your decision.



∙ Better access to mass transit.
∙ Closer to restaurants and shopping centers.
∙ Prices of homes are appreciating faster.


∙ The size of home that you can afford is usually smaller.
∙ Can sometimes be noisy and have constant heavy traffic.
∙ Can sometimes have a higher crime rate than surrounding areas.



  • Homes are usually larger and cost less.
  • Typically quieter than a city.
  • Space to play, such as a backyard.


  • You are likely to have a longer commute when you live outside of the city.
  • Lack of entertainment options nearby.
  • A larger home can usually mean more expenses.
