To compare the value of properties, one needs to look beyond the price of the apartments and consider what they have to offer, such as the size of rooms and amenities they have. In addition, it is crucial to compare properties of similar nature to make the best decision.

Compare Affordability

Affordability should be considered while comparing apartments. This personal decision should be taken based on one's income level. People should not feel pressured to rent apartments that they do not have the financial muscles to maintain. If two similar properties are on the market and have the same value, it would be wise to go for the cheaper option.

Compare Location

It is advisable to consider local crime rates when choosing between two apartments in different locations. Although there is never a place or neighbourhood that is "crime-free," past crime rates may be evaluated and should be looked into as part of your search.
