Please confirm: 公寓 main term for "Apartments"

I'm speaking with a buyer for one of my names who would like confirmation that 公寓 is the main simplified Chinese term for "apartment(s)"

Could one of the native Chinese speakers respond to confirm this?

Thanks,
Joe

Yes Joe, 公寓 (gōng yù) is the main simplified term for apartment. Also traditional and simplified is the same for 公寓. nice domain.
Good luck with the sale!

it's the same character of simplified with traditional.

Re: Please confirm: 公寓 main term for "Apartments"

gong yu is much more popular than loupan, loupan is more a professional term, used by property developers and often referring to an entire apartment complex.

公寓 (gong yu) is the main term, and most direct translation of apartment in all Chinese speaking countries..

quite true, loupan refers to the whole building. google translations gives "real estate".
