Town Home Living

Town home living can be actually a welcome change to a household from single family house ownership or a nice alternative for first time house purchasers. What used to be weekend projects around your house can develop into weekend fun when the work is actually done on someone else's time. Property owner association costs are charged for this luxury and there are specific standards that must be followed.

Residing in a town home can be a welcome change when downsizing or a new beginning for a growing family relocating to a new area not to mention very first time home purchasers. Maintenance exterior is provided for the home owner, no more spreading mulch, cutting the yard, cutting trees and shrubs even though there are certain flowers that can be planted when consulting your handbook. The roofing, siding, front stoop and cement are also items now dealt with by the association. In some cases evaluations do take place when an unexpected expenditure occurs such as a big snowfall year totalling more than exactly what the HOA prepared for in their budget.

Town home sizes are really different simply as home square footage varies from house to house. Some town homes can be tremendous with soaring ceilings, gourmet kitchens, medspa retreat baths and bedrooms. (buying bed frames it’s the very important thing - but that is the topic for another post). They can be equipped and have 2 car garages and full basements in many cases also. For some this is an excellent alternative when attempting to enter into a particular area where the single family house prices are out of reach however sufficient area is still on the desire list.

There are regular monthly or quarterly conferences where the property owner gathering with the association to go over costs, future plan for the neighbourhood and problems if there are any citizens not sticking to guidelines indicated in their hand book. There is a book of standards provided to the new owner at closing which states all the guidelines and regulations of the town house association. Generally everybody is respectful of others and everyone cohabits without any concerns however on uncommon event you can get a resident that didn't check out the book per say.

In town houses you will find a fantastic variety of individuals from retirees, single, young to midsized households all living in the neighbourhood together which makes for a nice mix unless you are purchasing in a 55 or older advancement where children are not allowed. There are facilities you may otherwise do with no such as neighbourhood pool, walking tracks, tennis, basketball courts and play areas for the kids.

All and all town house living has lots of perks to be delighted in by all, including myself after being a house owner all my adult life now dealing with 3 kids and my partner in a 2,500 square foot unit and caring every minute of it.
