Advantages of Townhome Living
June 26, 2019
Are you looking for an affordable home with similar space as a single-family home without all the maintenance? If so, check out these benefits of townhome living and see if this is the perfect choice for you!
This is probably one of the biggest advantages of townhome living. Enjoy a home with the same amount of a space as a detached single-family home without having to maintain a yard, clearing snow or repairing the exterior.
2) Convenient parking
Something often overlooked is the convenient parking that townhome living offers. You do not have to walk a considerable distance from the parkade to the elevator and then down a hallway like in an apartment style condo. Some townhouses, like The Harvest is even more convenient since they all have an attached garage, which makes getting in and out quicker, especially in cold weather and when you need to warm up the car.
3) Privacy and security
While a townhouse is not as private as a single-family home, it is more private than a condo or apartment since you have your own private entry and do not have neighbours above and below you. The close proximity of neighbours help improve safety and security within your community. This creates a sense of comfort when you go out of town knowing neighbours have a vested interest in the safety of your home and their own.
4) Community amenities
Townhomes are normally built within masterplanned communities which include parks, shopping, restaurant and schools. Having these conveniences in addition to meeting other people in your neighbourhood provide a lifestyle that many enjoy. In addition, townhome communities provide features that are desirable but not affordable on an individual’s budgets, such as fitness facilities, hot tubs, movie or party rooms.
Price is one of the reasons people choose townhome living. With various government plans available for first-time homebuyers, this is a great choice for many starting out with home ownership.
When your children have left home and a large home is too big for just yourselves, the advantages of townhome living makes a lot of sense when you are considering downsizing. Townhomes feel more like a detached home than an apartment does, and offer minimal maintenance as you approach retirement and want to spend more time travelling rather than home maintenance.
Townhome residents enjoy the feel of single-family living often at a lower cost and with much less responsibility for maintenance and greater sense of security. If this sounds like you, contact us for information on our Harvest Townhomes.
