My master bathroom needs to have double vanities, a tiled, walk-in shower, and a Jacuzzi tub. On this blog, I hope you will discover how to set priorities during your new home search. Enjoy!

Elli Jokela

If you have found yourself in the market for a new home then you may be tossing around the idea of going with a townhouse. In order to come to the right decision you want to consider the different aspects of living in a townhome so you can determine whether or not it is the right choice for you. This article will offer you 3 facts about townhomes that you can use to come to a conclusion.

1: Townhomes have home owners associations

Townhomes are known for having home owners associations which help to govern and regulate the townhome community. There are pros and cons to this. Some of the cons include annual fees you will need to pay and rules you will have to follow. However, there are also a lot of positives. A couple of those positives include the fact that you will have access to amenities like gyms and pools and the fact that you know there is someone making sure your neighborhood is being well cared for.

2: Townhomes have close neighbors

If you are someone who likes the idea of living in a close knot community where you can get to know a lot of your neighbors then you'll enjoy the fact that townhomes offer you a physical closeness to your neighbors. If you have children then a townhome community is one of those areas where your child can make friends around your home so you can go right outside and kee an eye on them while they are playing with their friends.

3: Townhomes have a uniform look to them

If you like neighborhoods that have a nice uniform look where there aren't any units that stand out from the others due to whacky paint jobs or an abundance of broken down cars in the driveway then you'll probably have a true appreciation for townhome living. The homeowners association makes sure that the townhomes all maintain a similar look and that residents aren't permitted to let their yards go to the point where it ruins things for their neighbors.


Now that you have a better understanding of some of the good reasons for living in a townhome, you might find that it's much easier for you to come to a conclusion on if it would be a good choice for you and your family. You also want to keep in mind that there are many other benefits you'll find along the way to appreciate about living in a townhome community.
