Why are townhomes so popular with homebuyers? Over the past few years, our culture has certainly shifted. We’ve learned that enjoying life is important because things can change in an instant. That’s why so many people decided to move over the past few years—in pursuit of giving themselves the better life they deserve.
If you’re trying to decide about your next home, consider the benefits of a townhome.
Low maintenance means more free time
Convenience has become a priority. Save time to be able to do what you like. Why go to the grocery store, car wash, or pet groomer when they’ll come to you? Everybody wants more free time.
Townhomes fall into a similar category of enhancing your life. A townhome comes with a low maintenance lifestyle. You don’t have to worry about the exterior upkeep. Services like lawn care, exterior painting, and even roof repair are often included in the Homeowners Association (HOA) fee. Like a condo, it’s a lock-and-leave lifestyle where you can head out for whatever adventure you want and know that when you return, someone has taken care of your home’s exterior. No overgrown lawn or shrubs.
As much space as you want
The maintenance of a townhome is like a condo. But unlike a condo, a townhome’s living space sizes up like a single-family home.
Townhomes are multi-level, attached residences. They come in all sizes, so you can find one that has the space and features you want. Maybe you work from home. Depending on the floor plan you choose, you could use the lower level area for your home office, convert a second floor loft, or take the third floor all to yourself. The division of these levels affords extra privacy that you might not have by converting a space that’s attached to the main living area, for example.
The Parc at Edwards Mill, Baker Residential’s community of new townhomes for sale in Raleigh, features 3-bedroom units with up to 2,100 square feet, plus a 1-car garage. If you want more than that, we have a new neighborhood planned nearby. The Parc at Laurel Hills will offer townhomes with up to 3,200 square feet, similar to The Parc at Town Center, a neighborhood we’re planning in Morrisville, NC, in 2023.
A great location is built in
Townhomes are designed for people who want convenience. If you’re looking for the lock-and-leave lifestyle, you must be someone who wants to take advantage of getting out and having your own kind of fun. It makes sense that such communities are built in a desirable location, close to shopping, dining, entertainment, recreation, and amenities. You can expect that a townhome is in a location where you’re just minutes away from the distractions that drive you to lock and leave!
Neighbors and friends
Living in a townhome, you’re connected with neighbors by more than just a shared wall. There’s a true sense of community when homes aren’t separated by yards and fences. You have your privacy, but it’s nice to know your neighbors—whether it’s a passing wave, a conversation while walking dogs, or getting together at someone’s townhome or the community center.
The sense of community presents another advantage to living in a townhome. You feel secure in a neighborhood that’s enclosed, where the streets are solely part of the neighborhood, connected only at the entrance. The people who live there know who belongs and who doesn’t.
Here’s one more benefit of a townhome. When you’re going to be away from home, you can probably rely on one of those friendly, helpful neighbors to keep an eye on your home.
