Envision waking up on a fall weekend morning, making a cup of hot pumpkin coffee and glancing out your apartment window at the beautiful fall leaves of various colors. The weather outside is crisp, the perfect sweatshirt weather, and on the agenda for the day is watching football, cooking pumpkin-inspired dishes, and enjoying the outdoors.

Fall is the time of year where you can truly enjoy the friendly confines of your own home. And there is no better place to get pleasure from autumn than at your very own apartment. Below, we have outlined the 4 reasons why the fall season is ideal for apartment living.

Amazing Company:

One of the great aspects of living in an apartment is the opportunity to reside with other people. Whether your roommate is your best friend or you randomly get paired with another person, the opportunity presents itself to become extremely close with the person living under the same roof. Having a roommate during the fall season is ideal. Whether you want to have some company to watch the big football game or the premier of the top new television shows, having additional company is definitely an added benefit as the weather starts to drop.

Having a home that’s too big is a thing of the past. Walking into an apartment that is the perfect size is an ideal situation. An apartment offers a comfortable setting where you know that you’re not overpaying. Stacy Keibler had a famous quote where she said, “When I’m home, I like a cozy, comfortable, calming space.”  An apartment offers top amenities at amazing locations for a reasonable price. A smaller home results in more social interaction among the members living in the same apartment. During the fall season there is a “coziness” element of living in an apartment community that can’t be matched.

Tight-Knit Community:

Being able to constantly make updates on social networks provides rental communities with a way to better connect with their community. The fall is a time where apartment communities hold costume contests, pumpkin carving competitions, and trick-or-treat festivities. Living in a rental community provides residents with the comfort of living in a tight-knit community. Autumn is a time when people seem to really connect with one another. It is easier than ever to follow updates from your apartment via social networks. Seeing pictures of cute kids in costumes or a couple with an amazing pumpkin decoration will bring a smile to the faces of all residents and allow you to appreciate the sense of community at your apartment.


Living in an apartment allows for less cleaning, less maintaining, and mental freedom. This results in the freeing up of your schedule to pursue the things in life that really matter – whatever you want that to be. The fall is a time where you should be making pumpkin pie in your kitchen or cozying up on the couch with a warm blanket watching the game or your favorite television show. There are beautiful nature trails where you can see the changing leaves or Halloween parties to attend with fall-seasoned beverages and pecan pie. Apartment living certainly provides residents more time to enjoy the things that really matter in their lives.

If you are living in an apartment with a close friend this autumn, take a moment to reflect on this memorable time in your life. It is a great time to appreciate the flexibility that you have, the sense of community provided by surrounding neighbors, and the cozy feeling in your apartment with great company. There are many reasons to love the fall season. Living in an apartment is just one of them.
