There are many ways of saving money when finding an apartment.  This next idea is
each and every day.  When you do find that perfect apartment that is priced right, ask if
apartments on the second or third floor have reduced rent rates.  The thought of saving
only twenty or thirty dollars a month for living on an upper floor may be amusing to
some, but a saving of two, three, or even four hundred dollars each year is no laughing

Pennies in Your Hands

When you look at this idea long term, you’re looking at saving thousands of dollars if
you stay in your apartment for a long time.  How would you like the idea of someone
coming to your door everyday, asking you to hold out both hands, and filling your
hands with pennies?  It would take two hands full of pennies to equal the amount you
would save each day by renting upstairs!

Other Important Reasons

That’s just the financial side of living on an upper level apartment.  There are also
positive health issues as well.  Having to climb one or two levels of stairs will burn
unwanted calories and will also give you some added exercise you body desperately
needs.  You may also end up lousing weight by this very simple idea.  People living on
the lower levels may think they are renting a premium apartment by living downstairs,
but in the long run, you may be the one coming out way ahead.


Living upstairs is also a safer place to be and will help reduce the chances of a break-
Living upstairs may also be a little cheaper if you’re paying for rental insurance too.  Be
sure to check with your insurance agent and see if there is a discount for living in an
upstairs unit.  If you live near a river, lake, or large body of water, you also reduce the
chances of getting your apartment flooded.  Water would have to climb an additional 8
or 9 feet to begin to soak your belongings.  Bug infestation may also be reduced or
eliminated by being higher up.  As you can see there are many advantages to living
upstairs so give it some serious thought.  The next time you are out be sure to pick up
a free apartment guidebook to find an apartment with upstairs units.  Try to request
only the second floor if possible at the apartment office.  Many complexes may have
floors above the second floor and you may find yourself winded and out of breath by
climbing to many stairs if you have to climb to many levels.        

Final Thought

Living on the high ground, or in your case, living higher up has always been a
desirable thing.  Getting paid to live in a safer, healthier location in an apartment is not
only a smart idea, but also the right choice when it comes to picking out the best
location to live.  Now you will have something to smile about when you see your
downstairs neighbor!
