Living in an apartment is...tacky?

I just read another post and someone said living in an apartment is tacky. Huh? what? Why? I am seriously wondering why?

There are so many benefits to living in an apartment. Even if I could get a house (which I probably could at some point and have had the opportunity to before but decided against it), I see nothing tacky about living in an apartment.

These are the reasons I personally love living in one:

My land lady is AMAZING.

If something breaks, it isn't my responsibility to shell out the cash to fix it. In teh 6 years we have lived here, we have gotten a new stove and a new fridge (they were both over 20 years old by then).

We have had frozen pipes and backed up sinks and I didn't have to shell out a penny for a plumber.

I get PAID to take care of the lawn.

I don't have to pay property taxes.

Why in the world is apartment living tacky?

Apparently to some of these crazy mom's, if you don't live in a nice two story house with all the bells and whistles and a white picket fence, then you're tacky. Lol

I live in an apartment. Its pretty spacious and its all I need for just my dd and I. My land lady is great and I don't have a yard to take care of, or have to shovel. Its all taken care of for me! Sure I'd like to have a house someday, but for now I like living in my apartment.

I love my apartment. I love the pool, exercise room, business center, fire place, stainless Steele appliances, and laundry room. And then there's the location..it's just great! Lol.

I really expected someone to point out that owners of apt complexes definitely pass the costs of property taxes down to their tenants...

I have a private land lady and our rent is the same as it was 6 years ago.

I've never lived in an apartment so I don't have any real experience with one.  Apartment living is not for me because I like outdoor space to do things like raise chickens, garden, etc. 

I don't think it's tacky though.  Just a different lifestyle from the one I like.

I do some gardening here, but I do wish we could have chickens.

Did you get a tankless water heater? We rent a house now but if we owned I would want to get one.


Quoting 2BRBgirlz:

Seriously!! My water heater just went out.  I was like "I wish I had a landlord to call!!" , but because I own this POS, I had to fix it! LOL
