Why Buying A Townhome Is Right For You

According to the latest Residential Real Estate Snapshot, “Orlando’s housing market remains strong,” said Lisa Hill, Orlando Regional REALTOR® Association President. “June’s housing data is a strong indication of what the rest of the year will look like – we can expect to continue to see more inventory and great prices for homes, which is good news for buyers and sellers.”

Increased inventory will encourage buyers to become more focused on what they want to buy. One big decision they'll need to make is choosing atownhomeor a single-family home. Both styles of homes are available from RockWell Homes, and both have their pros and cons. Let's take a look at whybuying a townhomeat. Harvest at Ovation in Winter Garden is right for you.

Townhouses Offer Increased Affordability

Why aretownhousesa good housing option? Townhome communities serve as a good middle ground between urban and suburban living, apartments and single-family homes. They offer the benefits of a close-knit community without a ton of responsibility. You own a home but don’t have a large property to care for.  

Townhouses are generally more affordable and more efficient than traditional detached homes. They sit on smaller lots, have minimal outdoor space, and share walls with the neighbors. Upkeep is cheaper since there is simply less space to maintain. And in many townhome communities, an HOA takes care of gardening, lawn maintenance, and exterior maintenance, as well as providing access to any community amenities such as a pool, fitness center, walking trails, or shared green space. 

Townhouses also provide great value for money. Even though they may have a similar number of bedrooms and square footage, they tend to be more affordable than single-family homes. In fact, they are almost always a cheaper option compared to detached homes. Property taxes also tend to be lower when you live in a townhome. Due to the smaller lot size, townhome owners pay lower property taxes than those in conventional homes.

In most cases, townhome communities are built in dense and convenient locations, near thriving town centers with lots of entertainment, dining, and shopping options. Some townhomes may be within walking distance of public transit, schools, and parks, too.
