Townhouses make up a significant portion of Scottsdale’s housing market. Attractive, compact, and economical, investing in a townhouse is one of the best options if you want to make the most out living in Scottsdale’s most vibrant neighborhoods.
Here are four reasons why a townhouse might fit your lifestyle and preferences perfectly.
- The best of both worlds
Living in a townhouse gives you the opportunity to enjoy the best of what condos and single-family homes offer. And that includes proximity to Scottsdale’s best shopping, dining, and entertainment while still owning the very patch of land the townhouse sits on.
Depending on the layout, you might get to have a front or back yard (sometimes even both), adding more space to entertain. Maintaining some home features might also be left to the HOA. You’ll just have to pay your monthly dues.
- Access to amenities
Living in a townhouse community also allows you to enjoy a variety of features and amenities you might not have should you decide to purchase a single-family home. And while every community offers different amenities, chances are they will have a recreation room, some sports facilities, and even a pool.
You, along with other residents, can also band together and pool resources to install a new feature. To be sure, check out the HOA’s rules and regulations, as well as amenities offered, to make sure it’s line with your lifestyle preferences.
Townhomes are usually more affordable than single-family homes. And the best part is you still enjoy the same features a typical free-standing house has. Townhouses come in different styles and sizes. They can also be located in the city center, in the perimeter, or close to nature. You can have the same appliances and fixtures installed in the townhouse.
In some cases, a townhouse can even have better offerings than a single-family home. The only downside is you have to share a wall or two with your neighbor. But in the bigger scheme of things, it hardly matters.
- Social opportunities.
If you love making friends, you are in for a treat. Living in a townhouse can increase your opportunities to make friends and even work connections. If you are moving in with kids, they will also find it easier to settle in the community with other children around.
But what if you’re not into socializing? The community will still benefit you through an added sense of security. Should you be gone for a day, a week, or a month, your neighbors can help keep an eye on your home.
