Townhome vs. Single Family: What’s Right For You


Whether you’re looking for a starter home or an upgrade, townhouses and single-family houses are both great options to consider when purchasing a home.

The most obvious difference between the two is the structure of townhomes are attached, while single-family homes are freestanding, and typically on a plot of land that belongs to the homeowner.

People with active, always-on-the-go lifestyles commonly find that townhomes best fit their lifestyle, mainly because of the maintenance involved in having a single-family home.

Townhome communities usually offer exterior maintenance and community amenities. These are great especially if you lack the time and experience in taking care of a house, but come at an extra monthly cost known as HOA fees.

If having a yard for your children or pets is important to you, single-family homes might be the right option, as well as having more privacy from neighbors. Also, you have more freedom to customize your home inside and out without limitations.
