I'd say House, Just because theres way more privacy.
Although a nice condo I wouldn't mind, no yard work, that's for sure.

I've only rented an apartment so far on my own, but I would prefer a house when I can finally get one. A smaller house with a nice big yard would be ideal .

Well, obviously houses are better. You're spaced out further from your neighbors, meaning you don't have to hear everything they do, but also that you can do louder things without worrying about bothering others.

I really love the independence of my apartment life, but miss being able to practice and record without having to go to campus and use the practice rooms. I've never bothered even attempting to record in practice rooms, so I just do it when I visit home.

Also, as a dog owner, I'd prefer a home with a fenced-in backyard. I don't like taking my dog outside out in the open in the middle of the night. It's so scary being out there in the open so late!

An apartment by far, I live on the fourteenth floor and I wouldn't trade this view for anything. Every morning I wake up to the sun rising over the North Shore Mountains and Howe Sound. It's a breath taking view and one you won't get with a house. And the only other way to get the view and have a house is to move to the North Shore . And believe me the commute from the North Shore sucks.

I would have to say that a house surrounded by about six miles of yard is probably 'best'. Just enough elbow room to keep you separate from your neighbors, but small enough to be manageable with enough creative forestry.

House.

I live in a nice condo which I like, but on occasion there's loud parties and people slamming doors and just being loud in the halls. It's like I'm living in a dormitory. But it only really happens on holidays or events like spring break. Plus I could use more space.

Well, depends really on your circumstances..... Me: two big dogs, cats (which I consider my kids). So I need a house and a yard. Otherwise, I dunno, it'd be something else probably.

Any choice will have advantages / disadvantages. Apartments are OK if the premises is clean, well maintained; neighbors are civil, not hellions; parking is spacious with roof, not tuna can tight with door ding gnomes aplenty; monthly maintenance fees non-existent versus exorbitant; commute / public transit reasonable versus semi-perm nomadic habitat when not at work or home; cost of living well within reason.

Homes give you space, residential identity. But the building can become a money pit, tax cash cow for municipality / school district whose appetites for continuous funding, both real & imaginary, are insatiable. Time can be either your friend or enemy re property values.

I'm getting to the point where I would prefer an Airstream trailer over apartment or house. It's less space, less tax liability, less extraneous work. I used to think having house with yard was a good thing but as I age the upkeep is reaching a stage where any activity beyond normal old guy routine is tantamount to asking for semi-permanent physical pain, strain, torture. Climbing up / down a ladder to clean out the gutters is a gamble with fate. Any fall equates with bone breakage and a trip to a hospital (screw that). Mowing the damn yard that has a slope is a real job now, not fun. No, it's apparent to the wife & I that downsizing to a 1200 sq ft home eventually is the best answer. This 2700 sq ft is getting to be too much.
