Renting a studio apartment is a great way to save for a down payment on a new house. Studio apartment living has additional benefits that you might want to take advantage of. But, first you may have to get accustomed to living in a smaller space.

Making the shift

If you’re transitioning from living in a college dorm to a studio apartment, the size adjustment should be simple. In fact, you may hardly notice the change. Moving into a studio apartment from a full size house is another story.

The average size of a studio apartment depends on where the apartment is located. In New York, the average size of a studio apartment is about 550 square feet. In Chicago, a studio apartment runs between 400 to 500 square feet. A studio apartment can be less than 400 square feet in other cities. Location also has a significant impact on the monthly rent that you’d pay for a studio apartment.

Ways that you can save by living in a studio apartment

Using New York as an example, you could pay more than $2,300 for a 550 square foot studio apartment in a hot spot like Manhattan. Shop around. Don’t assume that because the unit is small that the rent will also be small. Wherever you rent, you should pay less than you would pay for a standard one or two bedroom apartment.

Although a studio apartment is small, there’s enough room to fit a sofa bed, one tall dresser, a television stand and a television and a stereo. The apartment probably won’t have a kitchen. Pay attention to the layout. You’ll get more for your money if the layout is completely open except for the bathroom. More ways to save while renting a studio apartment include:

  • Buy food that doesn’t require cooking.Fortunately, a lot of healthy foods do not have to be cooked, so this could motivate you to develop a more healthy diet. Avoid eating out to save on food expenses.
  • Wear clothes that are a part of your current wardrobe. To save on space, you won’t be able to buy lots of clothes and shoes,another motive to save money for a down payment on a new house.
  • Get outdoors. Hang out with family and friends at great outdoor spots like free outdoor concerts, sports competitions and outdoor festivals and cultural events. Being outdoors can keep you from feeling like you’re confined to a small space.
  • Take advantage of living in a smaller space to focus on your career. You could use the time that you spend at your studio apartment, to start a business. Put a portion of these earnings toward your down payment.
  • Get exercise. Instead of taking the bus or train to work, if you live close enough, bike or walk to and from work. Deposit the money that you save on transportation toward your down payment.

Starting small could yield big results, especially as it relates to buying a house. If you rent a studio apartment at a reasonable price, you could use the money that you save on the difference in the rent versus what you would pay for a one or two bedroom apartment or a condo as a down payment on a new house. Rent a studio apartment and you could also adjust to living on your own for the first time, especially if you’re a recent high school or college graduate.

Did you know your home could lose heat due to a poorly insulated attic? That's right, and home sellers who want to maximize the value of their residence will want to improve their attic's insulation immediately. You should try to air-seal the attic to minimize your home's energy loss consistently. However, there are several questions you'll need to consider before you add attic insulation, including: 1. How much insulation will I need? Ideally, you'll want your attic insulation to be above the floor joists. And if you notice your attic insulation sets below or at the floor joists, you may need extra insulation to boost your home's efficiency. Furthermore, you'll want to ensure that insulation is evenly distributed across your attic. That way, you'll be able to avoid low spots, aka areas where energy loss becomes more likely to occur. 2. What kind of insulation should I install? Just because there is certain type of insulation already installed in your attic does not mean that you have to use this same kind of insulation in the future. In fact, there are many insulation options at your disposal, providing you with plenty of flexibility to find insulation that fulfills your home energy needs and budget. Some of the most common types of attic insulation include: • Fiberglass – Fiberglass batts and rolls can be applied to unfinished walls, along with floors and ceilings. • Foam board – This type of insulation is valuable for unvented low-slope roofs and offers a high insulating value. • Blown-in – Perfect for unfinished attic floors, blown-in insulation is installed using special equipment and works well in irregularly shaped areas. Meeting with an attic insulation expert may prove to be valuable, as this professional can offer insights to ensure you can find the right insulation at any time. Therefore, you'll be able to rely on this insulation professional to complete your attic insulation project quickly and efficiently. 3. How much will it cost to add insulation? Adding insulation to your attic can become expensive, particularly for those who choose top-of-the-line insulation installed by insulation professionals. For many home sellers, it helps to budget accordingly when determining how much to spend on attic insulation improvements. Although you likely want to improve your home's efficiency, it is important to avoid the risk of overspending. And if necessary, you may want to consider lowering the asking price of your home rather than performing comprehensive attic insulation improvements that may provide only a limited return on investment (ROI). When in doubt, meeting with a real estate agent can help you determine which home improvement projects are paramount. This professional will work with you to accentuate the positive of your home to prospective homebuyers, and ultimately, ensure that you can boost your chances of a quick home sale. Attic insulation improvements serve as one of many ways that you can work toward enhancing the value of your home. And after you complete various attic insulation improvement tasks, you'll be better equipped to help your residence stand out from others in a highly competitive real estate market.
