PG or Flat : What is best option in Noida
How to find a PG or Flat is a very common question when you are looking to stay away from your sweet home. Many time I find not only girls but boys too confused in deciding where to stay?
Before I put my suggestions on this topic, let me bring this to your knowledge that According to the ‘Residential Preference Survey 2015’ by real estate services and consultancy giant Colliers International, India, Noida is the best place to live compared to Gurgaon and Delhi. It is hassle-free with enough amenities.
Now coming to point PG or Flat:
It depends on various situations where you should go with PG or flat on rent. Noida is full of PG for girls & PG for boys. You can find enough flat options as well in all the areas of Noida. Consider these questions when you are to select one option:
PG is best suited for girls/boys who are on a budget and they don’t mind some restrictions like you can not have overnight guest in most of the PG. Though it brings a better security to girls specially where you can be sure of 0 or little interference of outsiders anytime.However if you are financially in a better position and enjoy night life, renting an apartment is best option you can go alone or with some friends.
Your Personal Nature:
Either in PG or flats, mostly you are staying with friends/room mates. If you are an introvert you are advised to avoid PG and go for flat on your own. Even you can find many PG on own though mostly have sharing option only.
Though flats/apartments are secure as well however PG brings a different set of discipline, where there are limitations like entry time, overnight guests. Specially for girls PG’s are safer than flats. Different people can have different opinion but I personally feel so.
While staying with flat mates in flats, you might have to arrange basic amenities like furniture, washing machines, internet etc. and most importantly food, you have to cook or hire maid. In PG, you get set of basic amenities in your room and most of the PG provide you food as well. PG have different budget sets for fooding options. Many offer cleaning, laundry (bed sheets /stuffs provided by PG), food, Laundry, internet, refrigerator, Geyser and other amenities as part of rent or at nominal cost.
The best thing is that there is never a fight over expenses which are done for running house/kitchen.
Whether you are going for PG or flats, do check your flat mates/ PG Mates, basic amenities etc.
