When it comes to deciding on whether to invest in a townhome or single family home, it can get difficult. It is impossible to predict with 100% certainty what life changes your home will undergo, and what kind of future your home will need to accommodate. You need a home that fits your budget and current needs, but something with room for the turns that life can take. To learn more about the pros and cons of a townhome vs a single family home, read on.
Features Are The Main Difference
The features you will find in a townhome are different from the features you will find in a single family home. A townhome is generally attached to other townhomes, sharing a common wall with at least one other similar home. A single family home has no common walls and stands alone on its own plot of land. A townhome generally has less front yard and backyard space than a single family home. While townhouses are often more centrally located and convenient for those who prefer city life, they lack in the privacy and space and quiet of single-family homes.
For those who prefer to live in a tight knit community with a sense of order and a Homeowners Association that keeps on top of the upkeep of all the dwellings, a townhome would be ideal. While there are sometimes HOA’s involved in single family homes, it is not to such an extent. There are rarely restrictions on the breeds and sizes of pets you can have as extensively at play in a single family home as there is in a town home.
