What makes townhomes better?

In finding the perfect place to live, buyers may find it difficult to choose between a home and a condominium. Each option has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. But for those who want the best of both worlds, the best choice is a townhome. Luckily, some of the best Sonoma County real estate options are townhomes.

Here’s what makes the townhouse a great idea for your next home:

They are in ideallocations

In terms of accessibility and serenity, you can get those and more with townhomes. These properties are typically found close to commercial districts so great shopping, dining, and entertainment destinations are only a short commute or drive away. Yet, they are still far enough from the hustle and bustle of the city to give you the peace and quiet you need.

They are easier to maintain

Compared to singlefamily homes, townhomes require less maintenance. Homeowners are only responsible for the home’s interiors. Yards in townhomes are also smaller, making upkeep easier.

Townhome communities also have a homeowner’s association. The HOA is responsible for the maintenance of shared spaces such as home exteriors, lawns, and the like. Townhouse owners will not have to worry about things like replacing the roof, maintaining the front lawn, or repainting walls.

Better sense of community

Townhouse units are designed next to each other. Thisproximity allows neighbors to interact with each other and, more importantly, to look after each other and their properties. It becomes much easier for residents to bond and create a stronger sense of community.Some townhome communities even get to organize events where residents can socialize and get to know each other.

Security is also less of an issue in a close-knit community. Trespassers and other shady characters will think twice before invading a townhouse, knowing that there are a number of eyes and ears close by who can catch them red-handed.

Flexible home design

The traditional multi-level design is versatile. It offers homeowners a wide array of uses and design opportunities. The bedrooms, living spaces, and the like are typically separated by floors. Residents have ample space to entertain guests while keeping their private spaces completely separate.

Unlike condominiums, there is more privacy in a townhome. Every inch of space is yours with no loud neighbors living upstairs or downstairs to contend with.

There are plenty of community amenities

Townhome communities give residents access to greatrecreational facilities maintained by the HOA. Residents will not have to travel far for top-notch amenities such as state-of-the-art fitness centers, tennis courts, spacious parks, and swimming pools.

They make better financial sense

For those looking for a less expensive alternative to a single-family home, bat for a townhome.It has all the benefits of owning a home, like building equity, without the burden that comes with homeownership.

When it comes to reselling opportunities, townhomes typically increase in value quicker than condos. This means owners will have better chances of getting their investment back and at a faster rate when they sell their townhomes.
