The entire purpose of having houses located in the suburbs separated from the main city was a matter of comfort and convenience. Basically a house in the suburbs is away from all the bustling noises and traffic from the city, allowing homeowners to relax and be away from the noise. It is also convenient because it made area planning a lot of easier for both the city and for developers. So, suburban houses were the ideal for the longest time, however since the housing crisis, majority of people do not want to opt for a house in the suburbs.
In fact, condos and apartments happen to now be the most popular choice in living. Interestingly enough, both condos and apartments are located within the city or around the city district, so this change in trend now shows that city life is now actively chosen for over a suburban life. This can be attributed to convenience. It is simply for convenient for people to be living near the city since that means they will have to spend less time commuting from work to their home, saving them hours’ worth of commuting every week and allowing them to save money that would otherwise be spent on fuel. More time spent in traffic and on the wheel is associated with various health problems overtime, so it is actually better for people’s health to be living within the city. Not only are offices closer to the cities, but other amenities like cinemas, grocery stores, pharmacies etc. as well. So, living in the city makes for a convenient life.
