Choosing where to live can be a daunting prospect. It’s one of life’s biggest decisions. It’s a very exciting milestone to achieve, and yet it can be overwhelming to think about.
It is commonly said that home is where the heart is. But, with so many aspects to consider, how do you know? While we can’t answer that for you, we can say this: ignoring the potential and feasibility of living in a townhome would be a huge disservice. If you haven’t thought about living in a townhouse before, then you might not be familiar with the things that make them so desirable.
Townhouse living has many perks and advantages, contrary to what many people think! To help you make that call, we’ve compiled a list of benefits you can have from living in a townhome.
1. Lower maintenance compared to a single-family house.
Living in a townhome is the perfect choice for those who want the feel of a single-family home without worrying about the maintenance responsibilities. With a townhome, you typically still get to own a yard front and back -- but you don’t need to maintain it. The Homeowners Association takes care of that for you plus the rest of the exterior home responsibilities. Say goodbye to pulling weeds and yard work!
2. Be a part of a safe neighborhood with a strong sense of community.
Townhome communities are very tight-knit, considering families and individuals live pretty close together. Everyone wants their neighborhood to be as friendly and safe as you do, and all work together to keep it that way. They are also designed for some peace and quiet -- unlike apartments, townhouses are built right beside each other, so you don’t have to worry about people stomping above you, and you get a lot more privacy.
3. Ideal location with amenities and common areas.
Living in a townhome community is convenient enough that you’re close to town without the chaos, but not too far that you’re isolated. You’ll have access to plenty of amenities and common areas like the gym, pool, and others for shopping, dining, and entertainment, as well as transportation and schools.
4. It’s a great investment with lower costs.
When we’re talking financials, a townhome is a fantastic option to consider -- especially for first-time homeowners. They are often less expensive than single-family homes in the same area but still have similar advantages and feel. With lower property taxes, lower maintenance, and utility fees, what more do you need?
5. Townhomes are beautiful on the interior as much as the exterior.
Most townhomes are modernized, so even if they are old buildings, they are carefully maintained and have very modern features that are attractive to potential residents for a great price! The Ridges at King’s Grant offers a very chic and beautiful interior and exterior design that will make you feel right at home.
