Townhomes are great starter homes for the younger generation with limited experience in real estate, people moving from a condo to somewhere larger, or retirees who want to downsize from their current homes to fewer bedrooms and less upkeep. In order to determine which of the available homes is best for you, it’s important to think about what type of features you want, such as how many bedrooms you want to have in your new house. Generally, townhouses are single-family homes that are usually multi-level and have a yard, as well as a front door rather than an interior entrance. Many times it also includes a garage and shares one or two walls with another unit. These single-family homes are connected and floor plans can be two or three levels. Each community has its own style and architecture, allowing you to choose the one that fits your style and needs best.
Because your new townhome will likely be smaller than a freestanding house, your new kitchen and living room may also be smaller. However, if you are moving from a condo, you will find that it is more spacious. This is common in townhomes. In fact, there are many ways to make each room in your townhome feel larger. These real estate properties tend to have higher ceilings to add vertical space to each room. Along with taller windows to accommodate for more natural lighting, townhomes feel large enough to raise a family, host friends, or even start a hobby in your home.
Spencer Hsu Real Estate makes it easy to look for new homes in the community where you want to live. When you check out a new house online you can save a search of each townhome you view. Virtual and private tours of townhomes, including each of the rooms, are available.
