If you are either recently single or if single life is your normal, then you may look for different things when you're shopping around. For instance, when you're traveling, you may look for a city with a good night life. When you're buying a car, you probably don't have to wry about having extra room in the back. And when you're shopping for an apartment, luxury may win over functionality. Before you buy just any apartment for sale on the market, however, you may want to consider getting a luxury one instead, but why? 


When you are living alone, you don't necessarily have someone who is checking up on you and who knows if you make it home safely every night when you get home from work. When you are shopping for an apartment, make sure that you look for one that's not only in a safe neighborhood but that has some safety features as well. For instance, you want a luxury apartment that has a security guard who sits in the lobby and makes sure that nobody who is unauthorized comes up to see you Also, you want to have security features like a locked door or at least a door that requires a pass code to enter. 


Another thing you may want to look for is an apartment that has accessibility to other things near you. For instance, if you work downtown then having a luxury apartment a few blocks away can make your life a lot easier. Another thing to consider is places that you and your friends like to hang out. Do you have a favorite restaurant that you like to eat at? Then you may want to find an apartment that is close to that. 


Having accommodations inside of your building can make single life that much more fun. For instance, if you have a luxury apartment that has a state of the art gym, then you know you can cancel your gym membership. Also, look for one that has things like a rooftop pool or patio where you can host big parties or dinners with your friends on the weekend. Other accommodations to look for include unique things like racquetball courts, in-house dry cleaning, and covered parking.
