A townhome presents the ideal solution for a variety of homebuyers. First-time buyers and right-sizing empty nesters appreciate the low maintenance. The lock-and-leave aspect is one of the many reasons to love townhome living.
It feels like home.
A townhome is at least two levels of living, so it feels more like a home than a condo. You do not compromise on the square footage or features. You still have the beautiful kitchen, the spacious suite, the number of bathrooms you need, and possibly a garage.
You own the land…
While your lot is smaller than what might accompany a single-family home, you still own it. And your property tax is considerably smaller based on this size.
…but do not have to mow it.
Exterior maintenance is usually included in the townhome community’s HOA fee. You have the pleasure of your own outdoor space without the maintenance. Your HOA takes care of the mowing, weeding, and fertilizing.
Your HOA fee also covers your roof, siding, and driveway. You do not need to store all those tools for home repair, so use the space in your garage or basement for something more fun!
More affordable, spacious living
Townhomes often present a more enticing price point than single-family homes. Remember, you have a smaller lot, and you are sharing some walls with another homeowner. However, with today’s advances in construction, you do not hear them!
Safety in numbers
There is something to be said for proximity to your neighbors. Townhome community residents tend to look out for one another because they see each other more frequently. You build relationships through familiarity—with neighbors on either side of your townhome, across the street, at the pool or fitness center, and those you pass while walking around the community. It is like living in a small town where everyone looks out for one another. And when you need someone to keep an eye on your townhome while you are away, you will have helpful neighbors willing to pitch in.
The amenities are a plus
When you choose to buy a townhome, you also get the use of the community amenities—a swimming pool, fitness center, clubhouse, walking trails, and other advantages to living in a townhome community. Some master-planned communities, like Wendell Falls in Wendell, NC, Nexton in Summerville, SC, and The Brownstones at 751 South in Durham, NC, deliver an outstanding selection of amenities. These communities are like towns of their own, with shopping, dining, and other services embedded there.
Combine the luxuries of resort-style amenities with the convenience of a low-maintenance lifestyle and you have more time to reap the rewards of your smart choice! Leave the home care to the pros and enjoy recreation, hobbies, and all the things that make life more satisfying.
