There are many benefits to living in a flat, and there are also many benefits to living in a house. Although most people would generally consider houses to be better there are many advantages to living in a flat that houses just don’t have. Choosing which is better often comes down to personal preference, and there is not really a right or wrong answer. It could also be said that the benefits of each depend on the location.
