Before we have a look at my 5 Favorite Townhouses around the North Shore that are currently for sale, I thought I’d take a little time to review a few of the benefits of owning a townhome…
Little or No Exterior Maintenance:
While some may consider a monthly HOA fee a drawback, others may see the benefit. In many cases this fee covers everything from grass cutting and basic landscaping to snow removal and master insurance. If you are the type of person who despises yard work, or you simply don’t have the time for it, paying an HOA fee may well be worth the money. Now not all townhouses are part of an association, but the majority will have some type of fee associated with them.
More Bang For Your Buck:
When compared to single family homes, townhouses will almost always provide more bang for your buck. Many times a similarly priced single family home will not offer as much space as a townhouse and may not include as many updates and upgrades.
Townhouse communities mean neighbors are more likely to know one another, and in turn are more likely to watch out for one another. Going on vacation? Chances are, if something unfortunate were to happen while you are away, a neighbor will have your back.
Also, many developments have rental caps as far as how many units can be rented out at one time…some may not allow rentals at all. Owners have a stake in the development…while renters, do not. Less turn-over makes for a more stable neighborhood.
So now that we’ve reviewed a handful of the benefits of townhouse living, let’s take a look at my 5 Favorites around The North Shore (click on any picture to learn more about the home)…
