Pros and cons of an apartment located on the first floor
The pros and cons of the apartment located on the first Atascadero on the first floor? No way! How true is such a biased opinion about housing located on the lowest floor? Is it really that bad?
Of course, it is not so pleasant when everyone passing by the Windows will necessarily find it necessary to look into them.
And the noise from the street is just as audible in the apartment as the noise from the apartment is heard on the street. And the knocking of the entrance door, the sound of the intercom all day long get on your nerves. This is also not a plus in favor of the first floor. Bushes and trees located under the Windows limit the access of sunlight to the apartment. And if the apartment Windows face the road… It already becomes just a nightmare, filled with terrible noise from transport and dust. And to avoid the appearance of unwanted “guests” (in the form of apartment thieves), you have to install bars on the Windows. And there is a very unpleasant feeling of being “behind bars”. And the proximity of the basement gives its charms: unpleasant odors, high humidity, cold, close proximity of rodents and cockroaches. And the view from the first floor window is generally not very attractive.
But it is not only negative aspects that can be noticed in apartments on the first floor. Especially if we talk about new modern houses built with all these disadvantages in mind. Windows in such houses are located high enough (any “guest” will have to think about whether he should go there). Sound insulation in modern homes thanks to plastic Windows is much better. And the penetration of dust and dirt is difficult again thanks to the Windows. If the pipes break, you will not have to worry about the possibility of flooding the neighbors below, therefore, there will be no reason to spoil relations with them. And for disabled people and people with problems of the motor system, the first floor is just an escape from stairwells. For more adventurous people, an apartment on the first floor can become a means of additional income. Since the demand for commercial real estate has increased recently, you can decorate an apartment for office space and rent it out.
So maybe many people should reconsider their opinion about the apartment on the first floor?
