Benefits of an Apartment vs. a Rental Home

Get the Most for Your Rent

If you’re looking for a rental south of Broad Ripple, you have no shortage of choices, including both apartment communities and rental homes. Make sure you know the costs and benefits of each so you can make a more informed decision about how to spend your rent money, and what you’ll get in return. 

Outdoor Upkeep

While rental homes often come with some outdoor space, it’s common for the responsibility for yard upkeep to fall to tenants. That means you might be accountable for mowing, weeding, even snow removal as part of your lease. In an apartment community, property management oversees and schedules all maintenance for outdoor and community spaces, with no effort on your part. If you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy yard work, or who’d prefer to spend your free time enjoying the outdoors rather than maintaining it, an apartment home might be a better choice for you.

Energy Costs

Rental homes often come with some of the drawbacks of many houses, including energy-inefficient windows and insulation. When winter comes, do you know what it’ll cost to heat your rental? How about air conditioning in the summer? With a newly renovated apartment home, your energy costs should be more consistent and predictable.


Wouldn’t it be great if your rent payment covered more than just the basics? With a rental home, rarely are amenities and perks included in that monthly rent check. If you’re looking for the most value for your money, an apartment community is your best bet. At 7 Pointe, your rent includes use of all of our amenities, including the swimming pool, fitness center, playground, and indoor and outdoor lounges. 


Owners of rental homes may not live locally, which could mean repairs or maintenance are subject to delays. Apartment communities have staff dedicated to fixing issues as they arise, so you can get back to normal faster and with less disruption to your life.
