To attract people to an area or a city, a lot of actions can be made. That some things attract more than others are a well-known fact. Some of the popular things to attract people is a rich cultural life, a large range of sport activities and the most important thing is probably that the schools in the area are well renowned and keep a high standard as well as a good living standard. When it comes to living arrangement there should be a range of different alternatives to meet the different needs from different people to be able to attract people of all kinds to the area. There are lots of pros and cons to all kinds of accommodations because it is very subjective. The person moving in is the one with the preferences and they vary from person to person. Despite the difference it is crucial to chart the pros and cons to be able to describe the range in the area to people interesting to move there.
If there are houses available in the area it is one of the options for immigrants. A house provides lots of possibilities but there are also disadvantages. Having your own house is a dream for lots of people since the possibilities are almost endless and you can remodel to your own taste and preference. Renovating and remodelling is a long process and the preferences and needs will most likely change during the process. Another advantage with having your own house is that you will have your own backyard to use for whatever you like. Some people like growing their own vegetables while others like having a pool and other recreational settings for relaxation. Some people like cooking in the garden and build their own outdoor kitchen. When you live in your own house you have a little more freedom to make noise than you do in an apartment which gives you a little more freedom to play music and to have parties and such activities that may be found annoying for neighbours in apartment houses. You also have your own laundry room which means you don´t need to book in advance or take other people into consideration. That is a large advantage when you have a big family with many kids. If you have pets, a house is mostly the best kind of accommodation as well, both for their freedom and for your convenience. To name some disadvantages, costs can be one. They can vary between houses depending on, for example, size, standard and age. If the costs for warming are high that is something you need to pay yourself. You are also your own janitor and fix your own renovations and all maintenance. It is important to be prepared for unprepared costs.
To make a neighbourhood attractive, mostly for young and retired people, it is good to have a possibility to rent your accommodation. The advantage of renting is that if something brakes, you just call your janitor. You don´t need any capital, or to be pre-approved to loan, to rent. The disadvantage to renting can be that you can´t make any structural changes or improvements in your apartment. Your rent money goes straight to the landlord and is used up directly which means you can´t count it as an investment as when you pay off a loan. The biggest advantage to live in an apartment is that you can move whenever you want and won´t have to worry about sales or such.
