What should you consider when choosing between a Condo or a Dormitory?
1. Cost-efficiency of your Stay
2. Personal Comfort
There has been a long-standing debate on whether you should live in condos or in dormitories while you are still a student. Recently, choosing between the two has become a lot easier. If you are a student who is having a hard time choosing between looking around BGC for a condo for sale or looking somewhere else in Taguig for a suitable dorm, then maybe considering these three things will help you.
Cost-efficiency of your Stay
The first thing you should consider when choosing between a condominium and a dorm is of course, how costly it can be for you. Particularly in BGC, condos for sale can reach high prices because of how high-class the area is.
Upfront, the cost of staying in a dorm might be more appealing.
However, that is considering only the initial costs. When opting to stay in dormitories, it is important to know that most of the time, you will only be paying for bed space. Everything else would be shared between you and your roommates. In most dorms, there won’t be enough space for you to put cooking equipment. You would normally have to eat outside every time, adding to your expenses.
In BGC, particularly in the Fort, Condos for sale come fully furnished, along with cooking tools to make you feel as at home as possible. The price of it also pays for many of the amenities included, like the use of their pool, gym, spas and many more depending on the place you choose.
Condominiums provide you with the luxury of living in a spacious environment. They are fully furnished to give you the utmost comfort. You still, however, have the choice to add additional decorative things that will satisfy your tastes. You can also choose to either live alone or get your friends to stay with you.
Living in dormitories, however, is basically living with a group of people you don’t know in a space that is just big enough to fit all of you. As mentioned above, you’ll have to share most of the things, and that includes the bathroom. You are also very limited as to how you want your personal space to be.
If you are someone who values your personal space a lot, then choosing to stay in a condo might be the best option for you. Basically, condominiums are the best choice if you value being comfortable and having control over where you stay.
Probably the number one reason why people choose condos over dormitories, living in condominiums provide you with the freedom to do many things. You only need to follow the very few guidelines that the management has. You can invite your friends over and do group studies, or simply hang out and chill.
You can even go home as late as you want because there aren’t any curfews, something dorm goers can never do. In dormitories, however, you are under the supervision of the management. These dormitories usually have strict rules and regulations, one so is the implementation of curfews. Seldom do dorms let you bring in visitors, and most of the time, dorms limit the things you can do within their area.
In today’s age, where children begin saving for their college days very early on, the choice of condos versus dorms has become relatively clear. Condos bring an overall better package for students, with the added benefit of possibly teaching them to live independently. This will be a great way to start their student life and knowing the importance of having the advantage in investing a property early on.
