The present scenario of choosing a house to reside in includes the area of the house referred to in sqft. This includes the parking slot area and sometimes the common area too! It is preferable to have a house with decently good area, but is all the mentioned area of the house the active area? Is all this area personally available to you? Well, unfortunately the answer is NO. Active area is something that's not just owned by you and accessible but open to you. It is like the area you can move about, do your work, sit and walk around. I don’t think parking is open to you for all this. Well, I live in a hostel in which we are given a room of may be 7X10, but the active area is not even half of it! It has to accommodate the bed (3X6) and a table with a chair. It may sometimes feel miserable to have too little active area. Make a wise choice in opting your house with good active area and adorable arrangement of all your equipment. Check out the area of your dream houses.
