top level unit or middle unit better?

jgordonOctober 7, 2006

Hello, I am moving to my second apartment, and there is a top level unit(5th floor) available as well as a third floor unit. I currently live in a two story apartment building and live on the top floor. I have never had the experience of people walking above me, and I am weary of this due to some of the stories I have heard of. Which is the better choice, a top level unit or a middle level unit? (The complex has dual elevators in each building)Thanks for any suggestions

As someone who currently has "Stompy" and "Thumper" living over my head, go for the top floor unit, especially since the building has elevators!

I'm moving to a townhouse next month specifically because I don't want people living over my head anymore.

I'd go for the top since there's an elevator. When I was young I lived in an apartment with hardwood floors. It was hard to sleep in on Saturday morning when the two-year old above us like to wear his mama's high heels in the bedroom above us. (Especially after we'd partied the night before!)

Once i didn't go for the top level and i regretted it for the entire term of the lease. Top level all the way.
