What is a townhome?
A townhome or townhouse is a two- to three-story residence. It has one or two shared walls with neighboring townhomes but, unlike condos, does not have other units above or below it. Buying a townhouse means owning the structure and the land on which it sits.
Often, homeownership entails being part of and paying monthly fees to a homeowner’s association (HOA). The HOA manages the townhouse community and takes care of outdoor home maintenance. It is also in charge of the upkeep and repair of shared amenities like pools, clubhouses, and gyms.
Benefits of a townhome
Townhome owners are free to design their individual units as they please. They can also make upgrades to kitchens and bathrooms without having to secure the permission of a landlord.
Townhome owners are only responsible for maintaining the interior of their property. Exterior maintenance, including upkeep of yards and landscaping, is handled by the HOA to ensure a uniform façade. The HOA is also responsible for repairs to the exterior of the house like roofing and shared exterior features.
Privacy is another perk of townhouse living. Like a two-story or multilevel single family home, townhouses have common living areas like kitchens, living areas, and dining areas. Bedrooms, however, are usually located on the upper floors to ensure the privacy of each member of the family.
- Community and safety
Shared walls among townhomes can serve as deterrents against burglaries or trespassing. That’s because any noise from intruders may easily be detected. Most townhome communities are also well-lit with and their residents close-knit. Community amenities make it easier to socialize with neighbors and meet new people.
Townhome communities usually offer amenities like pools, fitness centers, and recreation and entertainment areas for its residents. Often, there are parks, children’s playgrounds, and bike paths maintained by the HOA. Other more luxurious communities feature concierge services, golf courses, and the like.
A townhome offers the best of both worlds – the benefits of homeownership and the convenience of condo living.
