By KateForbes Subscribe to RSS | January 18th 2012 | Views:

There are three options available, whenever a person is looking for a property. First, rent a complete flat, apartment and house alone. This option is generally exercised by families, students and working professionals. Second option is to buy a house. This option is only for those who can afford to do so. As we all know it is not possible to invest a large amount all at once. Last of all, there is the option of house/flat sharing. The choice of flats-sharing by the people has a number of reasons.

Improved lifestyle:

It also means that you can improve your lifestyle by sharing a flat or apartment as it allows you to stay in a property which you would not be able to meet the expense alone. Moreover flat sharing also gives an enormous advantage socially for people coming from other areas. Your chances of meeting new people increases by having a flat mate and making friends who can help you out get well-known with the local area. Hence if someone does not like meeting new people or making friend then flat sharing is not an option.

Lower cost of living:

It is becoming more and more popular to share an accommodation as the economy is in a state of flux. People trying to lower their cost of livelihood, remedy to this form of living as it involves sharing bills between flat mates along with the council tax, rent etc. This makes things more convenient as it helps to reduce tax and rental rates significantly by sharing the cost. At the same time it is important to mention that some of the bills will actually increase which is proportionate to the number of people using the property.’

Monday to Friday lets:

In the city of Edinburgh it is becoming very popular, especially between the working professionals. A lot of people who have their homes at a long distance from their home, which means that they have to spend long valuable hours travelling or being in full trains. This happens with most of those people who work in the city but they have their homes and families in the country or vice versa. Continuously travelling to and forth might bright a person down, cannot have full sleep which will directly affect competence during working hours. In such a circumstance staying in a hotel or travelling constantly will have an effect on your pocket. Therefore Monday to Friday lets is the solution to all this hassle. Instead of long travel it is not only cheaper but is also less stressful.

Extra income:

Sometimes people open up their homes to tenants by renting out rooms. There is a rent-a-room service by the government which allows homeowners to rent out rooms and make extra income.
