The Benefits of Condo and TownHouse Living
Townhouses and condos are homes that are attached by side walls. They differ from apartments in that they are typically more than one level and do not have anyone living above or below. This living arrangement is ideal for many people. Buying a condo or townhouse come with a unique set of benefits that single family homes do not have.
Affordability and Location
Townhouses and condos are typically more affordable than single family houses, yet still provide the same accessibility and convenience. Even though these attached homes are sometimes smaller, the price per each square inch is consistently lower. The location is often an appeal, as many of these complexes are close to downtown, shopping, and favorite spots.
One of the major appeals of townhouse and condo living is that owners do not have to mow the lawn, tend the garden, maintain the pool, or find a professional repair company. There is usually an on-site maintenance person who will take care of fixing issues within the property. The care and upkeep of the property is the responsibility of property management company. They take care of maintaining the complex and common areas.
Because the homes are connected and all residents share common areas, there is a strong sense of community within the property. Residents use the same facilities, and cross paths more often than neighbors in a single family home community. It is possible to form close-knit friendships with the others on the property.
Some complexes have entrance doors that cannot be opened without a key. The key to get into each unit is different from the front key, enhancing the security. Guards and patrols are also offered at some properties. While intruders may simply break a window at a single family home, townhouses and condos have added security that makes the likelihood of an intrusion much lower.
Townhouse and condo complexes often have extras that the typical single family home does not. There may be a gym, pool, rooftop patios, garden spaces, and barbecue areas. These amenities are all within walking distance and are usually free to use.
Townhouses and condos offer a sense of privacy. They are frequently located on quiet, private streets that do not get a lot of traffic. Because it is private property, there is less foot traffic, fewer disturbances, less noise, and a decreased chance of unwanted visitors.
