It is some advantage then, because lot of apartments will be empty when SHTF. You can use that in your favor by making alternative routes in and out, also leading the possible intruders in direction you want will be easier to plan.
Thinking outside box is key there. Think today about all possible routes in and out and alternate ways for that for example.
In some apartments buildings during the SHTF I could go trough the floors up and down trough the hole in the walls or ceiling, and those holes were hidden with rubble or destroyed furniture or similar, if I tried to walk on stairways it looked impossible because it looked buried under destroyed stuff, or stairways were not there at all etc.
