I looked at one and I'm curious as to how much noise you can make. If I start singing are the neighbors going to hear?

I live in an apartment and NO, they can absolutely NOT hear you.

Honestly, it depends on the apartment. I've lived in apartments that have paper thin walls and no one had any secrets, and I've lived in apartments that did a really good job of mitigating sounds. I currently live in one that is pretty good, all things considered. I don't hear much of anything unless it's my neighbor above me stomping around like a dumb elephant.

I previously owned a townhome zoned as a condo (shared walls) built in 2005. Never heard the neighbors at all and they said they never heard me either even when playing loud music or instruments and using my air tools.

I've lived in numerous apartments where they can absolutely hear you.

And if you have neighbors living above you, you can absolutely hear them when they stomp harder... if they have small kids that jump around, you will be annoyed.

Depends on the construction of the building and how loud you are.

I own some older wooden buildings and people on the 2nd floor could hear people on the 3rd floor talking. They were friends at one point, but one day the 2nd floor heard the 3rd floor people talking about the 2nd floor. The 2nd floor lady said she had to confront them about it and long story short, they were no longer friends. My conclusion is that if you hear someone talking about you, you don't have to confront them about it.

I wonder if a condo would be more insulated than an apartment.

When I was stationed at Miramar San Diego, I had an upstairs apartment out in town. The Vietnamese college students down below were always complaining about me dropping my dumbbells on the floor. After me very angrily banging on their door and shouting a flurry of expletives at them about me being born in this country and them not having the right to complain about what I do, they never bothered me again.

All the apts built in the 70s or later with wood construction seem to transmit noise between units quite well.. because there's nothing there to stop it!

But any of these newer luxury units made with concrete and steel are definitely better... but never doubt the odds that the people living above you will purchase a down-firing subwoofer for their TV and drive you bonkers.

I grew up in an upstairs apartment. Couldn't hear the other neighbors but the people below us did comment how they never heard us walking around unlike other people that lived there.

Don’t live there but own a condo ~ we actually offered slightly above asking price since it was single story rock & mortar, very first unit of 22, and only connected by the width of one bedroom … and that wall is stone …
Very quiet …
