Plot vs Multi-storey?

Plots are very much in demand in India. Also now, the majority of the smaller towns see greater competition for plots than for homes. Multi-storey apartments are becoming the norm in developed urban areas where land costs and the comfort and protection provided by the apartments have fuelled demand from the younger generation. Often, as family sizes are becoming smaller, many sell large planned buildings in developed urban centres for smaller, more affordable apartments with better controlled amenities, typically in suburban gated communities.
