With so much variety in today’s housing and real estate markets, it can sometimes make for a difficult decision as to what type of home you should look into. Each type, from houses to apartments to townhouses, offers unique advantages. They offer a variety of living spaces and comfort levels that appeal to different people. Take a look at some of the many option in the Fleetwood real estate market below and see which one best fits your housing needs.
Condos come in just as many shapes and sizes as houses do. They offer a cozy space that is usually ideal for single living or a married couple. And with a diversity of floorplans to choose from, the choices for condos seem as abundant as any other housing option.
Condominium living also tends to foster a sense of community that some other options may not, given that there are often community get-togethers and common areas, such as a pool or clubhouse. Another advantage of most condominium communities is that landscaping and exterior maintenance are handled by the property management company. In a house, you would be responsible for doing the yardwork and keeping up with basic maintenance tasks such as gutters and roofs.
Townhouses seem to fall in a middle area between the snug confines of an condo and the expanse of a house. Most townhouses two-story, with bedrooms upstairs and common areas downstairs. This offers the inhabitants a buffer zone between sleeping space and living space. Depending on the owner/inhabitant relationship, there may be some exterior maintenance responsibilities. However, yard sizes for townhouses are usually relatively small and simple to maintain. Floor plans can also change with townhouses, with the second floor adding an additional design dimension.
This option will usually afford the most space and diversity in design and floor plans. A house will always offer the most privacy, as condos and townhouses share common walls but houses stand alone. Obviously, if you are the owner of a house then you will be responsible for yard work and exterior maintenance. However, that is frequently a selling point to many homeowners. Exterior decoration and landscaping is a point of pride and cathartic exercise for many. This type of gardening is typically not available in a condo environment, save for rooftop gardens or window boxes. Even then, a rooftop garden may be communal, and a window box is only a fraction of the potential size of a backyard garden.
